    Hi

    I have a first generation expedition and I have replaced the factory radio.

    As such the second row radio controls that are in the back of the front centre console no longer work.

    What I want to do is replace the radio panel with USB plugs.

    My thought was to get an inverter and powered it off the side cigarette plug in the centre console and disassemble the inverter and extend its USB plugs to the location where the radio controls were.

    Unfortunately when I took the inverter apart the USB plugs are part of the circuitboard.

    Below are some pics of my set up.

    Any suggestions on how I can get 2 to 4 USB plugs in that area?

    I just put the inverter plate into the OEM radio control plate.
