2015 rear USB ports in a 2012

I'd like to add the rear USB ports that the '14/'15 GCs have to my '12 Summit. The panels look to be the same size, has anyone done the swap and know if it's plug and play?

thats an excellent idea and should work. If you can't get the factory panel to work here are some options below:

Re: 2015 rear USB ports in a 2012

Were either of you successful in doing this? If so, how much did that rear panel cost? I was thinking of doing this for my 2013 Limited as my kids like to fight over the sole USB port inside the console.

Can you post pictures of the rear panel you bought? More specifically the back side?

2015 rear USB ports in a 2012

I'm wondering if there is an existing harness in my console that would plug into that green USB connector. More than likely there isn't, but it may be worth looking into.

So that back panel just snaps off? No hidden screws?

just snaps off, no hidden screws. My 2011 def doesn't have anything for it to plug in as I more than likely wouldn't expect it to. Can you pull your factory cover out and see if there's any plug that looks like it would connect to?
