    Can anyone help me identify what this connector is called/where I can find one?

    I am trying to install a wireless charging tray in the center console. Upon taking the console apart, I found that the previous owner had installed an aftermarket cigarette lighter in place of the one stock one that the wireless charging tray is supposed to tap into. Unfortunately, this means the wires are cut and there is nowhere for me to connect them to the harness for the charging tray. If anyone can point me in the right direction on finding a connector like the one shown it would be greatly appreciated!

    Cigarette lighter plugs are pretty standard. I would think you could find one just by searching that. Or use two female terminals and call it a day.

    Check the build link in my signature.
    The one socket is a standard 0.25” spade and the other is a narrower 0.187” spade. You could get some of those at a local ACE or electrical supply (don’t think Home Depot will have the 0.187” female connectors).

    otherwise, you can grab the EWD for the 2021 model truck from the wiring diagram thread in my signature and look up the connector to get the part number

    Just bought some spade connectors online. I would’ve never thought to do that. Much appreciated!

    this isn’t the exact model that’s been installed on mine, however it’s essentially the same. It’s just a dual USB port in place of the cigarette lighter (just like the plug-ins you can buy for like $6, except it’s hard-wired).

    Oh. OK.
    Replaced it with a USB..
    I did that with both of my console 12volt plugs, would do it to the rear, but my dogs don't need it...o_O
    Used one of these to have a decent ammeter..

    Amazon.com: Quick Charge 3.0 Car Charger, CHGeek 12V/24V 36W Aluminum Waterproof Dual QC3.0 USB Fast Charger Socket Power Outlet with LED Digital Voltmeter for Marine, Boat, Motorcycle, Truck, Golf Cart and More

    Glad you got it figured out..

    Hey, OP, I removed my two cig lighter/aux ports from my dash a few weeks ago, in order to make room for my new LED switch bus. I may still have both connectors (which I cut out) that match the one in your pic. I will check tomorrow and get back to you. If I still have them, I am happy to mail you one free of charge!

    @preacher35 thats very kind! My spade connectors will be arriving tomorrow, I will try those first to hopefully save you the trouble and if they don’t work for whatever reason, I will give you a holler. I really appreciate it!

    I actually just got it installed last night. Looks and works great!
    upload_2021-2-12_12-39-24.jpg@602runner’s and @RainMan_PNW’s suggestion worked like a charm.

    If anyone runs into a similar issue in the future, here is how I solved it:

    I purchased these spade terminals from Amazon and applied them to the wiring in the truck (4.8 mm on the positive and 6.3 on the negative/ground iirc):
    FIXITOK 480pcs Quick Splice... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088LNZRNS?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
    They came with insulating sleeves, but I found electrical tape to be easier to apply and more secure

    To tie the cigarette lighter/usb ports back in, simply take the white plastic insulator off the female connector on the harness and attach those terminals to your cigarette lighter/usb ports. The one installed in my truck was too crimped by the previous owner to do this, so I just bought a replacement on Amazon (around $15) and plan to install that sometime next week.

    thanks all for your great suggestions and help!
