    Link One
    Link Two
    Link Three

    The third link is the thread that I followed to mod my truck. The link to the instructions in that thread is dead, so I reposted it (see first link). The second link is an alternative if you want a separate, always on outlet.

    The mod took me thirty minutes to do being very careful with a three day old truck.

    All the links above found using forum search/thread search tools.

    Sweet, thanks to all! I'm not worried about running down the battery on the truck. But it's a waste to power on everything to run a laptop and phone.. :thumbsup:
