question about rear plastic coverings

I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of what it looks like behind all that plastic in the back of the Jeep.

I want to put a 12 plug back there and not sure how those panels come off and what the wire routing might be like.

Has anyone put a 12V outlet in the back ?

Pictures and how you did it please.

Thanx in advance.

In my JKU it was very easy to remove and work behind and then replace.

Do you have a two door or four door?

With the four door you remove the tops where the seat belts go through then take the smaller sections off the back. Then you remove the hidden bolt under there, remove the bolts at the bottom with the tie downs, and then just pull it away. There were two body snaps on each side that had to release.

Watch the side with wires if you have a sub/power outlet and disconnect it at the top corner (grey connector) before you pull on the panel.

Took me minutes to strip it all out on mine.

Then you peel the carpet down and add wires along the current harness with zip ties.

I added a back up camera wiring and cb aerial cable far more easily than I thought

Here are some terrible pictures that probably won't help much. I was specifically trying to get shots of how the plastic reattached, so there aren't any wider angles. Stupid on my part. All pics are the driver's side.

Top of the...area, with the seat belt retractor.


Looking at the inner side of the area, looking towards the back (tailgate is open, you can see the driveway).


Same spot, different angle.


This is on the passenger side, behind the roll bar and seat belt retractor, because I wanted a pic of that plug. I don't know what it is.

So you connected your 12v outlet to that?
How can i get the female connector to match that plug?
That would be way simpler than running a wire all the way to the front.

Also stupid question. Do we need all that plastic?
Seems like extra weight and places for sand dirt to collect etc.

I wonder if someone took it all out and how bad/good it looks without all the plastic.

How did you mount the plug? What location did you find works good and has enough room to put it in etc.
Looks like a fair amount of room with insulation you could remove a little hole in that and mount it.

My Sahara already has a 12v outlet and a sub. The plug is pretty low down on the passenger side of the plastic. The cable for them connects to that grey connector in the corner. You can't buy the cable separately as it is part of the full harness apparently (I wanted to as I had a bad connection on the back of the 12v power outlet). I ended up just fixing the wire on mine.

You could probably order a connector from your dealer or a pickers yard. You can order the 12v power outlet and plug to it from them (I did as I replaced both on mine).

The plastic covers a lot of painted metal, the seat belt mechanisms and some wiring harness in the corner/back edge on mine. I think it looks better with the plastic than it did without it, but you may feel differently.

So you say yours came with a plug from the factory. Have any pictures you can share.
Maybe there is a knockout on mine. I'll have to have a look and see. I would like to keep it all factory but the cost of that maybe high.
I was planning on getting a weather proof outlet from Pep Boys for like 12$ and putting that in. I want to tie to the factory wiring as was shown. I bet mine has that plug too. probably for rear defrost and sub etc.

Yep, mine too. That's on the other side. The passenger side has the harness for the rear tail gate system, rear lights, and sub and 12v power as far as I can tell.

Took some pics for you It's tough getting them to come out with a black on black jeep though so hopefully they still help.

That plug on mine ONLY goes to the sub and power outlet.



It's behind the plastic on the top right in this image.



There are three pieces that come off, top left where the belt goes through pops up. Then there is a piece behind that spring clips out.

Then the main big piece. IIRC, bolt at the top that is exposed once the back piece is removed, and then the tie down bolts at the bottom. Then it is held in place with clips on the body studs.

The OEM replacement parts that I bought were not badly priced at all and I was happy they were OEM and my rebuild looks perfectly stock.

You can probably get the wire harness you need from a breakers yard.

I would bet the plug for the harness is there. They will have just one main harness and then plug in for the options depending on the build.

well i just called the dlr and spoke to parts $15.70 for the part my price is $12. I get a discount. So I ordered it from them. Comes with the plug etc.

Also they told me to move fuse 49 to the right as its a place holder.
Now to look into the plastic removal. They will have the part Friday.
