    So I'm looking at tapping into the factory inverter for power outlets in the cab but the wiring is not the issue. The issue is where do I get the square 110v receptacle I always see in pictures?

    Any suggestions

    I've got separate usb and power outlets in the back of the console. I got both outlets from Amazon. I think if I were going to redo it, I'd just go w/ this single 110v type outlet and simplify the wiring.

    I was looking at thos too. I was trying to find the single square plug that would just pop in to place. I see them in all the pictures but can't find one on the Web.

    Getting 10 pieces for $5 total seems a much better deal than getting just one at $4. Am I missing something?

    I would like to install an additional cab outlet too, but I don't like the way any of them look.

    The only 2 that I've found so far are from '15 F150 or from a Honda Ridgeline. I would like to have a 3-prong one and not sure if Ridgeline ones are. F150 one looks the best so far.
    Don't know the price or availability of these.

    Toyota Matrix ones look pretty nice too, but I think they are only 2 prong.

    Too much shit to list.... See "My Build" page
    Off the subject a little bit but I have never even thought about doing that. Thanks for the link! I think I'm going to get one and put behind our nightstand and maybe one in the kitchen to charge the phone / kindle.

    Thanks again for the thought!

    Wow! That was fast. Thanks!

    I don't really care that its not used. As long as I don't have to break the 3rd prong off of my MacBook Pro charger ;)
