    I have a Kenwood DDX3eX HU and its has a corded USB. I need a cover/port to put the cord into the center console in one of the factory holes.

    I also want to add a dual port USB charger in one. Does anyone have a link or suggestions?

    You mean a USB swap for the 12V round hole?

    For our 1st gen trucks which are way different from 2nd or 3rd gen models, this is what I did:
    https://www.tundras.com/threads/howto-add-flush-mount-usb-aux-port-in-center-console.70236/

    This is where others put it:

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/wha...-gen-tundra-today.2558/page-1412#post-2851182

    I've seen people retrofit the cigarette lighter plug with USB also, like this unit, there's a mod explanation for 2nd gen in the DIY forum:

    Someone posted around here a port that fits into the factory locations that are blank here, but I'm too lazy to search for you, I know the content is here though, your question isn't unique: https://www.tundras.com/threads/has-anyone-made-use-of-this.110574/#post-2852992

    That picture is what my center console looks like, I'm looking for something to go in there that I can fit my Kenwood USB to.
    I don't want to convert the cig lighter, just looking for the part that has 2 USB in it that fits that.

    Yup. Someone posted the part here recently, it's been posted a few times since I joined, and a year or two before that. They got it on scAmazon. You may need to dig a little to pull it up.

    I posted a link to the part above. That's the same console I have.
