Aftermarket Inverter to Power Stock Plug?

Hello, sorry if this seems like an amateur question however is it possible to use an aftermarket Power Inverter (Centec 750/1500) to power a stock AC plug that I plan to put in my center console bezel?

Rather than installing a factory inverter, can I simple run a inverter and then tap into the poer outlets, run wire to the stock plug and just tap into a harness or simply connect to the two prong side???

Anyone done this? Any tips and ideas would be helpful.

You'd just have to run the wires from the back of the inverter receptacles to the factory receptacle you install in your console. Just make sure all connections are secure, solid and insulated well.

There might be some issue getting the AC wires to attach to the factory style plug... I'm not sure what connectors those use, but I bet it's not your standard A/C wiring.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

True, it might require some modification and soldering, or it may just not be practical at all.
