adding rear power port to rear seat area?

Just bought my Patriot Sport tonight, and was wondering if anyone had thoughts about adding a power port in the back seat for my girls' DS's

where can I tap into power?

Are you trying to plug the power adapter into an AC power supply? Did your patriot come with the AC outlet on the front of the console?

I installed a second 12v in my sport. I tied it into the cigarette lighter in the front and put it on an inline fuse. I just "dremmelled"out the center console

****Before i had a jeep I didnt know why you guys parked in snow banks and made sure to hit puddles and mud but now i understand....It really is a Jeep thing!!!!!****

you can get a 12 volt car kit from radio shack or the like and just tap into the plug that is in the front dash.
