    Hi Gang,
    I'm looking to add a few USB charging ports in the back of my 2017 double cab sport. It's a pita to have to use the 12v in the console. I was thinking either adding a new single dual port charger that always has power ( on a switch) just below the cup holders on the console OR adding a dual port to each side under the seats. I've got 10 and 8 year old daughters and for longer trips charging phones is a must.

    Thoughts?
    I did a search but didn't find much. If someone knows of existing threads links would be amazing.
    Thanks folks!

    After looking at the console I think I'm going to add 1 or two near the bottom of the cup holder area. I found some that have a power switch directly on the port. I went ahead and ordered a few! Now to find a live wire in that area... I'm going to start googling to see if I can find a wire diagram but if anyone has any recommendations please let me know.

    Any thoughts on swapping your cig lighter with a dual USB?

    I've seen a post under most useful mods that someone tapped into his center console usb and transferred it to the rear portion of the center console (for access to the back seats)
