Adding the 110v outlet

Has anyone thought of it and attempted or successfully done it yet??

I was considering adding it if I can.

I haven't, but I can speak from the experience of having it. It is nice to have, and I use it. However, if I didn't have it I would probably just mount an inverter under the seat or something. I actually bought a nice inverter to install in the back and just haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

The outlet doesn't work with the key off, which isn't a huge issue, but it would be nice if it did once in a while. Also, you have to turn it on every time you start the Jeep, so if you have something plugged in and run into the gas station or something it's easy to forget to turn it back on (it doesn't come on automatically with the key). Then you get where you are going and realize whatever you had plugged in has been off the whole time.

It's also not very powerful. It really won't power much. It wouldn't even charge the battery on a high end laptop my buddy had in there once. It kept tripping out.

Here's the one I'm going with. It will power my little Maxstar welder and probably anything else I'd need on the trail.

2500 Watt Power Inverter with Built-in Extension Cord, 12 Volt by AIMS.

Post Inverter

I have a 400 watt inverter under the passenger seat. I'm using a relay powered off the key so it is only on when I have the key on. I don't need to run my battery dead over leaving it on. I also have a 2000 watt that I can hook directly to the battery, however with one battery I can't use more than about 1500 watts.
