'14 JK Rear Electrical Outlet

One of the things I'd like to add to my Jeep is an electrical outlet in the back.

I'd read on the forums that some Jeeps have a subwoofer on the back passenger panel. Mine doesn't, but I was hopeful that there might still be some kind of hidden electrical connection.




It looked like the panel was just held on by a couple of plastic screws, so I popped them out, and pulled back on the plastic.......and promptly heard the "POP!" as a plastic tab I didn't see broke off.....now the panel is loose....oh well, that's the price of progress I guess

Anyways, I pulled back the panel and the piece of insulation that was underneath it and....BINGO!



I'm not an electrical guy, so I'm hoping someone here can tell me what this type of outlet is so I can find a plug to fit it...



Anyone have anymore information on this wiring and maybe some suggestions on what I can hook up to it? Like I said, I'm not an electrical guy, but I know some people who are....I'd just like to get an idea of what I'm working with and what I could possibly do with it.

Thanks!

Not knowing what you plan to use the outlet for I would install a dedicated power lead for the outlet. If you look at the wiring the factory uses it is not made for much more than 10A continuous.
Personally I would run a 10 or 12 gauge wire from the battery with a 20 or 25A fuse.

Not trying to be vague, but the outlet would hopefully be able to run just about anything I wanted to plug into it......obviously not going to try anything crazy like a vacuum cleaner......but I'd like to be able to hook up things I'd use for things like camping and tailgating.

It may be worth looking this up in a service manual or something. This is likely the plug for the subwoofer, as you assumed, and would include +12VDC and a 0VDC com. There is also going to be speaker wires for the signal to the sub. Basically you need to know where this power is coming from and which pins they are. Likely this power is already fused and is fused with the rest of the audio system somehow. I would not put another outlet on this circuit because it not designed for it. I would do as CharlesS suggest and run a dedicated fused connection straight from the battery. You will thank yourself in the end. If you are feeling extra adventurous you can install a DC/AC convertor back there behind the panel so you can have 120VAC power to run anything you'd like.

The plug back there is for both the subwoofer and the 12v AUX outlet. The rating on the outlet is 10A. I have been looking for the mating end myself as I traded my subwoofer panel for a non subpanel and the harness is part of the panel.

Sadly no because the Flux Capacitor requires 1.21Gwatt and the outlet only provides 120watts, thus being short 1.209999880Gwatts.

It's still on my to-do list but I've got a couple of things in front of it.

The 2014 Grand Cherokees have plug in outlets. Maybe that part is a plug and play
