I used to get my power from the cigarette lighter, just spliced it in with the wires behind and made sure if I was ever charging phone didn't have the screen on (might have been alright with both - never tried).

It is pretty easy to run the wiring under the carpet even with the seat in.

Seriously do people google "f**k up modifications for Fords owned by Jews" and get linked straight to this site nowadays?

just be slightly careful with the power draw and the wire thickness.
the cigarette lighter socket runs on very thin cable, maye 16-20ga
too much current draw and they'll heat up, just monitor them and see how they go..
chuck up some pics!!
