    Very good write up. going to move the Kenwood HU USB connector from the Glove box to a blank. Nice and easy and since it charges the Itouch its plenty strong enough

    The 4x4 spot is not causing any problems.

    I have one similar to that too. Can't remember the brand, but it actually has 2 usb ports in one.

    I love how my 1st gen has 3 front cigarette plug ins :D Plenty for any situation.

    Bought this from NewEgg.xxx
    Haven't received it yet, but going to be a summer project.
    PS: $6.49 with free shipping. Shipped from China.
    Never had a problem with shipping from China, but usually takes 2 to 3 weeks.
    Hangup I think is at customs.
    Anyways, I will figure out how to mount when it arrives.

    Hey guys new to this tread so let me know if i'm doing something wrong.
    Just picked up my first gen 2 Taco and I am excited to get some mods underway.
    I picked up one of [​IMG]these with the intention of running 12+ to one of [​IMG]these in the fuse box for always-on power. I have seen some other do similar things but wanted your input on whether my theory was sound and if anyone had suggestions on which fuse to plug into?

    CORRECTED INFO: For constant power use the door lock (DR LCK 20A) fuse slot.

    I just installed a USB outlet I got from ch4x4.com. It's a perfect fit in the center console. For power I hooked up the trailer brake harness under the dash and ran the USB outlet to it. It's an always on power. Ran the ground to a screw under the steering column. I also changed the fuse from a 30a to a 10a. I just ordered a switch so I can turn the power off to the outlet when I'm not using it. I will post some pictures when I get the other switch installed. Mine is a 2015 model.
