Replacing BLANK with Lighter Plug

I have seen a few threads similar to this, but not asking the exact question I am. I have a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited... So the RUBICON power outlet is empty on my Jeep Panel. I'd like to throw in a 2nd lighter plug in replacement to that blank panel. Is there any threads I overlooked that show some visuals of this being done. What is the safest and best way to wire this, or is there some pre-wiring that is done for Rubicons that i'll find behind the panel?

Considering buying this, and seeing if it fits into the Rubicon Power Outlet Area.

Thoughts? Add ons? Links to pictures of this being done?

Thanks to all!

I put a West Marine ($12) socket where the bag clip used to be. It's a perfect fit. You pull out the net panel which allows you to pull the bottom of the switch panel out enough to slip it in and secure it. I wired it into a hot accessory fuse panel I previously installed behind the glove box. Takes 10 min. Make sure your wire leads are ready to go before pulling panels. I also ran a second one to rear.

How did you run the wires to the rear? Or did you tap it off of something local to that area?

I started looking around and I'm wondering if I should get one of these...saves the adapter and I usually plug USB into the socket anyway.

Power tapped from same hot accessory fuse panel I previously installed behind the glove box. Grounded locally.

I was wondering if Jeep had replacement outlets for the original one on the left that could be used on the right. But pretty new to the scene, so unaware where this would be located.

Is that what this is??
