12v and USB mod

Some time back I saw a mod made to Greyhawk front dash where a USB and 2 12v plug ins were installed in the empty space on the dash with nice face plate. We are not very skilled at this kind of thing but itís time to learn. Anyone know where I can find this mod. Thanks

Don't you already have 2 - 12 volt plugs on the dash of your Ford?

I have one of these:

https://www.amazon.com/Upgraded-Ciga...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

I originally purchased it because I wanted to put the control for my Patriot toad braking system on the dash to the left of my instrument panel over by the A-frame and the cord wasn't long enough. I find myself using the other ports though.

It's probably not as elegant as the mod you're looking for, but it works perfectly.

And now that I'm looking at the one I linked, I wish I had that one. I picked mine up from WalMart while I was waiting on a tire repair.

I think that would work and fit in the space. Is it hard to install for newbie? We are amazed how many electronics we need. We did purchase a multi port USB from amazon but it does not work and we threw out the packaging. Live and learn.

I just plugged mine into one of the existing 12V dash outlets and laid the box on the dash. So, yeah, dead simple.

With the one I linked, you could get just about as extravagant as you want for mounting options I guess.

I didn't want to attach mine to the dash because mine didn't really come set up to do that, and I didn't want to put screws in the dash. I would use adhesive tape, but again, I didn't want to do anything permanent. Plus adhesives don't do all that well in our TX climate. Plus, I can use it for other things in other vehicles if I need to.

Really in my case, it's little more than an extension cord with a few more options.
