I did mine but I dont have any pics. I dremmelled out those two black pieces out to make the circle emty. I have no Idea where I got the 12v plug but it is different than the cig. lighter. instead of fitting down inside the hole the inside metal piece is on the outside of the bezel. I will try and get pics tomarrow but more than likely wont be until friday. hope this helps for now.

ohh and here is what I started doing with the wiper display. unfortuately that piece is in storage somewhere but I should have it done this month because I am buying a house and will have all of my stuff from storage.

note... I did not do this to the 4x4 display its just an extra piece I had that had a similar shape.

because the explorer bezel has rear wiper controls instead of an extra 12v. Its just using wasted space for something useful.

So you want it for the extra foglight switch, but you need to mod it to retain the other 12v power source?

I'm not a help, as I don't have the necessary pictures.

Zach if you can give me until Friday hopefully I can get you pics of my Bezel with an extra 12v in place of the wiper control and 2 fog light switches, the fog light switches will not be hooked up because I do not have fog lights yet.

My Old stereo that is pictured flipped over when you turn the truck off, it has since died and will be missed.

It looked good but some guy at the car wash stole the plug for it. I might just switch it back for a Ranger one.

It still has all of the switches and cigarette lighter attached. The only thing it does not have is any pigtails for the wires.
