    I went this route and just spliced the wires and plug in my cb only when needed... (I'm forgetful and didn't wanna chance a dead battery) works great though

    Did you use an inline fuse on the red wire coming from the CB?

    The installation of this piece isn't my problem, my problem is that my 12v output is on the left hand side and not on the right hand side like it's shows in the instructions. Also, they seem to be hooking it up to the cigarette lighter.

    This is what my Jeep looks like.

    My question is, since they show it being hooked up to the cigarette lighter, would it work the same if I hook it up to the 12v output? And do you guys think it'll be long enough to reach by where it shows it coming out by the glove box? Sorry if this makes no sense but it's the best way I can explain it hahah. Thanks for the input guys!!

    I have that adapter and it works great.

    you may not have a lighter but I bet the connector is still there.

    I've noticed on my 2010 there are other connectors and plugs for accessories I don't have - guess it saves on having multiple wiring harnesses

    Ditto. They use the same wiring harness, just didn't put the hardware in the plastic panel to plug in to. Otherwise, that harness will work on the left side as well, follow the same instructions but obviously use the leads from the 12v if on the left side rather than the right!

    Unless you wire directly to the battery a fuse is not needed. All the power in the dash is already fused.

    A fuse tap is only about $5 and all you'll need to do is run a wire from the fuse box to where you want your CB to go. IMO easier, and cheaper. And you can either pick an always hot fuse (constant 12v), or a switched fuse (switched 12v) that way when you take your key out, your CB shuts off. That's how I have mine wired, because I used to forget it and leave it on all the time.
