AC outlet installed in the cab?

Have any of you put an inverter and outlet in your truck? I keep looking at the bag holder thinking I never use it and it would be a great place for a 110v outlet.

I was surprised there wasn't a kit already made for it. Really the only thing a search pulled up was people swapping the ash tray from a 7.3 or putting a cb radio where the bag holder is. I thought an outlet would be handy.

It wouldnt be all that hard just would have to dismantle an inverter to install the plugs into the panel and then mount it behind the dash and run a wire to the battery and then to ground. Interesting idea i may consider this because im always using my inverter because i live at an apartment so they dont take kindly to you tapping into their power

Lol I see what you mean. I was thinking just cutting off the female end of a good gauge extension cord and plugging it into the inverter mounted under the seat. Then running that behind the dash and wiring up an outlet. Its not the best solution but I dont think code enforcement will know

Or these would be great as well rather than dismantling the inverter and still have a flush mount plug
