    Will be adding the USB charging ports when I replace all 6 of the speakers with the Rockford Fosgates tomorrow, if the weather is good. Supposed to actually freeze tonight.
    And I do love all the endless mods I find here! And all the help when needed.

    Come on dude...give yourself a little credit. If you can drive and operate the bells and whistles our rigs offer you can do this mod. The video made it idiot proof!

    Anyone though of adding some USB ports on your console? Circled areas. Wonder if enough space to do so? Piggy back of 12v cigarette lighter. Wanting to add one USB and one cigarette lighter for goodies

    Any other place inside the doors that you can tap into to get the power since connecting this way you not have power if you disable the rear windows?

    I tested all the wires and my truck didn’t have any wires other than for the windows. You can choose to have the plug hot when the windows are locked or unlocked. You could maybe tap both wires and use some diodes to keep it from back feeding, I’m not sure about that though.

    You could always run a dedicated power wire into the door. I did that for my mirrors lights to be running lights.

    It is a great mod and I am about to do it again on my new truck.
