    Is there a way to do this? I have several accessories I plug in to the 12v outlets in the dash, but unlike my other cars the power is not cut when the truck is off. I figured someone has found a way around this? Thanks.

    I made a small harness that plugs into the RAP port and has two 12V sockets on it. I ran the power lines from the dash mounted GSP and Cell Phone cradles behind the dash into those sockets. That way when I turn off the ignition they both power off. It also took the clutter off of my dash and console sockets and cleaned up the entire dash.

    It's behind a plastic cover on the left hand side of the driver's foot well. Right behind the bottom of the swing of the emergency brake pedal.
