and since the Super-Duper Gladiator has an appointment today at Tom's Rhinoplasty for a little snip, I figured I should be nice last night.
So I hard wired the Dashcam and phone charger.

This pic is kinda cool, My Dashcam is 2 channel. Those 4 red lights are actually IR lights for the cabin camera. You don't see them. The screen powers down after 10 seconds.

This is a nice setup. You have links for the cam? Also where is your rear view mirror? It’s dark

And on day 64

The Angels sang

(except they sounded like Walker and Texas Ranger Bobby)
And they said “Sweet Baby Jesus said to give the Super-Duper Gladiator a gift."
So I asked “what should I give it?”
and they sang, until my ears bled.
and then they gave me an idea, and through the miracle of modern medicine,
RHINOPLASTY!!!
aka a MOPAR snorkel. :rock:

@JP1 you now have a swamp mobile!!! And I thought you hated mud???

A snorkel is in my future I suspect, once I move from the mountains to the South...

The ability to go in mud does not necessitate the need to act like a pig...
I sounded so cultured there...:LOL:

I saw it outside the Gaylord Palms last weekend on the way to our room. We had a blast at the Jeep and Truck Fest had to stop and snap a few pics. Nice rig.

Did you buy the hardwired kit when you purchased this? If not how did you direct wire it? Via the Aux switches, if you have them, or another manner?
I bought a 12v dual USB tap:

I wired it into the ignition controlled 12v wire that comes in the Aux switch group.
I plugged a USB to USB mini cable for the camera and ran it from under the glovebox around the windshield for the camera.
I plugged a USB to USB-C cable in for charging my phone that comes out under the glovebox.:like:
