What about getting a longer cord to hook up in the front on the dash? Or are you wanting them to be able to hook it all up on their own?

You could buy an aftermarket multi-plugin, run the wire under the seat and along the edge trim on the floor, and up into the fuse box and hard-wire it in. That's what I'm planning on doing. Not sure where I'd mount it. Haven't looked at it yet.

Yea that sounds like a good idea, maybe i'll just run it to a upfitter switch (make a good on/off switch for them also), and into the center console, drill a hole (if I can find a nice connector to make it look professional).

Something like this, but maybe more sleek?

Got mine done today.

Mounted multi-box on center column. This one also has a USB connection. I ran the wire down the column, and along the sill, up to the firewall, and over to the fuse box.


I wired it in with an "Add-a-circuit" pigtail. It just plugs into an existing fuse socket.
