Here is a tip...did you know that if you use the "unbreakable" or nylon receptacles you can dye them with rit fabric dye? Yep you can and you can mix dyes to get the right color. Unless you wanted the white receptacle in which case store the info for future reference when your four year old daughter insists that her room be "princess pink" and the bright white switches & plates,receptacles & plates annoy you enough you search for a solution...$3 dye $15 in new electrical components, 30 minutes and serenity at last...

I'm floating between painting black and green right now. Akebono is on the waiting list though. I was gonna do it but I got my calipers replaced for free and really didn't wanna say no to free replacements. lol.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Borrowed a trailer from a friend here in town then drove 80 miles east into Iowa to pick up a John Deere 314 riding lawnmower that needs some TLC. This is my first towing experience with the WJ. I am very impressed.

As for your USB port, do you need it for the rear passengers or is it for everyone? Maybe mounted under one of the front seats? Another option might be to use the fascia piece of the rear cup holder as a hinged or magnetic door and flush mount the outlet and the ports to it, but you'd lose your cupholders in the process. I guess if you were willing to lose your cupholders you could even keep the drawer part like I did in my "gun drawer" project and just mount your junk to that.

We're all covered in front with the addition of the one outlet for Karen's laptop charger.USB is already up there from the Clarion plus the 2 factory 12v outlets. Everything in the back of the console is for my 14 and 12 yr old daughters and their vast array of electronic gizmo's. They already have their own monitor/tv back there so with 120v now they can even take their Wii if they want to. USB is for charging and 12v is for whatever else.I had the most pleasant drive ever on vacation last year 'cause I had stuff like this rigged up from every orifice the poor Jeep had. Looked like somebody sprayed a can of silly string in there so I'm trying to remedy that this year.Also I have to keep the cupholders so this project is a real challenge because daughters can't be trusted with beverages under manual controlRemember entertained kids are very quiet kids
