    I just tapped into the OEM inverter under the center console. Perfect for charging a lap top or using a wall charger for a cell phone. Let me know what you guys think!

    Search around on this forum some, because I've seen some threads where people were using the square snap-in receptacles. Single square receptacles similar to the ones you find in many power strips. The cut the square hole to fit with a dremel tool and it snapped right in place. The receptacles even had a trim plate on the front which covered up the hole entirely.
