Default HELP! Aux/USB Relocation From Armrest

I've got a single cab tradesman with the 3.0 and the aux cord is located in the middle seat back/armrest. I want to remove the center console but need the aux port still, I can't stand local radio. I can live without the USB. Does anyone know of a relocation harness or have any other suggestions? Maybe I can install a port into the dash like my third gen had stock? I want the middle seat out so I can fit a cooler and the wife in for the honeymoon/ roadtrip. Thanks!

The wires go under the drivers' seat. You can potentially just trace them back, then install a panel jack like this in your dash somewhere:

https://www.amazon.com/kenable-Stere...N%3DB007OH57XC

The USB has a USB connector under the driver seat too, you'll have to remove the pass. seat and center seat to draw all of that back under the carpet if you want to relocate that into the dash, and probably buy a gender-change USB socket and panel jack for the USB to work. Totally achievable, just a bit of extra work. I think it's easier to just put an aftermarket 2DIN radio in, that's what I did. That way I get HDRadio and bluetooth and Pandora control right from the dash.

We use an Igloo brand cube-shaped ice chest that fits behind that center cubby nicely, doesn't go anywhere even on really uneven roads.

Look at the Crutchfield website for radio options

the RA1 3.0 radio is a POS, doesn't even have bluetooth, a portable radio has more features
