Wanting to add passenger power outlet

I have a 2010 sport and would like to add the rear power outlet that I've seen in many 08's. Is this possible if so what do I need? I know i would replace the cover that has an outlet in it which I found online but i didn't see a plug back there when I removed the cover. Is it possible to do this?

Take a trip over to your local auto parts store or automotive section in Walmart and look at the different options for 12 volt accessory outlets and think out of the box. All you need is a hot wire and a grounding point. I mounted an aux 12 outlet on the lower side of the drivers seat on the metal frame. I used an outlet what is enclosed in a plastic housing with a spring loaded door covering the access hole. I use it for the aux brake system when I pull the KK behind the motorhome..

Or are you talking about using an invertor and adding a 120 outlet in the rear?

I was pretty disappointed that the KK didnt have a 110v outlet. thats standard in the Patriots so I never thought I'd be giving that up when I got the KK

I wired my old TJ Wrangler up with an inverter under the hood. I suppose from there I could have run an outlet. What I usually did instead was I kept a small inverter in the glove box for times when I needed it. You could permanently mount one somewhere in the passenger area but it wouldn't be nearly as slick as the outlet in my 08.

Here's what I'd use instead... http://www.amazon.com/PowerLine-Powe...power+inverter Some times the simplest approach is the best.

I don't have any plans for a specific reason I just want it in case I need it I want a 110v outlet. Only reason I wanted the stock outlet was the look. I think I might just add my own if I can find a sleek outlet with a cover on it as I have my kid riding in the back.

My under-hood inverter was a biggun. That was really nice. It would run the boiler in our house in the event of a power outage. So my Jeep was also my generator. It was also nice when out in the sticks. I doubt I'll ever be that hard on my Liberty, though, so I'm going to stick with the one outlet. We run a mid sized inverter in our Honda van and it's great for the kids on road trips. I stash it in the back and we run an extension cord so it isn't under foot.

No doubt some custom car parts shop will have an outlet that would be a good match. If you could find one with a USB port, too, it would be perfection.

There has to be some in the junk yards around you to pull the plug unit out off. Then just run your wiring. With all the radio extras your good with that stuff.

I didn't. It sat up high enough and back towards the firewall that it was always dry. Since it was almost never in use I did cover it with a plastic bag to help keep the dust out. There was tons of space available under the hood.

I also am disappointed with Jeep for not having more outlets. I also found a lot of choices at Amazon for portable inverters with two plugs and usb ports. I agree with theotherone about the simple approach.

This is the first 4X4 that I've owned since my '70 Landcrusher wagon that has had only one 12V outlet. Even my '04 POS Trailblazer had two in the front,one in the middle and one in the back. I really don't need any 110V power as everything we use in the car uses 12V.
