Easy. Remove the two bolts from the left and right at rear of console then the whole rear console pulls off. Just ordered a USB-C/USB off Amazon and wired in. White is hot and its on even with key off so be careful or remove the fuse. I just did 1 wire at a time.

There are two notches when you remove the cigarette lighter, I cut off the top one and left the side one on to make a tight fit.
It was so easy I only took the one picture..

Nice.. one thing I hate is the placement of the usb plug in the front. I plan to always use a plug but hate seeing wires. Do you think it’s possible to move the front USB to another spot?
was thinking to slice in and run a new female plug to the glove box or armrest. think it’s possible?

Sure you can. But the front one is your Android auto /apple car play. You would need to make sure whatever adapters you had worked with it. I know some usb cables don't seem to work with the stereo.

A flush mounted one has been left plugged into my truck for 3 or 4 years. Works great for those who don't want to take plug out in case they need cig. plug down the road for an air pump or something. Each to their own.
