    Ok i have had the times where i have ran out of 12V outlets so i got this from Advanced Auto I got it a few years ago i think i payed $25 for it. I had it in my old jeep it did what i need it to do. But now i have sold the jeep and got an 06 SR5 DC Prerunner!!!!!!!!!!! my first Taco and i LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I put this in still a little work to do with it be for its done but its in place some what and works. I only had to cut a little so far and all the wires are behind the center console and comin through the little cubby on the right of the steering column.

    The shot where the switches are that comes out easy just a little but of a wiggle and movment and its out!!!!!
    The power outlet box does have a USB outlet on it i havent used that yet but i sure i will. Where i have to outlet box now is not working out to well because double sided tape doesnt stick well so im looking for a better location. I think i found one on the passanger side of the center console next to the shifter not sure yet but its a working idea.
    Also i still have to get behind the center console to get to the 12V factory power outlets wires to splice into to free up the other factory outlet and to hide the wires. But i need a little help with that i think i found a mod that tells me how to get the center console out.
