    Curious about the gray/white wire connectors on the back of the lower two cigarette lighters and I guess if there was anywhere they can be bought, considering they’ve been cut by the previous owner, leaving just the wires. Rather have them be connected properly than just connecting them in a jank way to the pins. Pretty sure I blew an ACC fuse last time with my attempt. Lol

    I believe they look something like this.

    I would check the junk yard if you have any near by but you could also try this.

    Id recomend replacing the socket itself with new ones from Blue Sea.

    But as far as the cut wires go, you can strip them back some and test with a meter to figure out what is what. There shouldnt be any power to them unless the key is in and turned to the ACC/ON position.

    Just crimp some new spade connectors on the wires. No need to track down the factory plug. Just make sure you know which is (+) and (-). The back of the plug should have + and - indicators.


    As for the plugs themselves, I really like this mod: I did this mod over a decade ago, and allows you to have constant hot acc plugs. It's great for charging your phone etc without needing the ket in the ignition.

    Just pull the 12v acc relay and jump the connection as seen in lower right corner of this pic:

    Yup I did the same thing. One of the first mods I did to this truck. Very simple & useful too.
