Maybe someone will know about a factory reto-fit, my Long Horn came with it. Factory inverter is 150 watt max.

You may want to check an auto parts store (even WalMart?) for a 110 volt inverter to plug into your cigarette lighter plug for price. Depends on how convient it needs to be.

That outlet is useless for most items such as laptops here in Canada as most all laptops now come with three prong plug and the truck manual warns against using an adapter for a three prong plug. I opted for a cheap 200w inverter to plug in to one of the cig lighter outlets.

after looking into this, because i too am interested apparently you can buy the outlet piece... and cover to fit it into the dash... its like $20 total

i am betting you can integrate an after-market one into inside the dash tucked up underneath and wire it to the outlet piece for a factory look

Good idea, then you'd have the three prong plug.
