I'll tell ya right now that the 2 door model is very hard to find. I've only seen a couple and I've been dealing with parts for a long time.

I modified one of them so that it would only be on if the Retained Accessory Power was also on. (If interested I could post my wiring diagram for this switched version.) I would think you might be able to find one of these panels and the wiring harness that could plug directly into your wiring harness.
I want to do this in my 01 Blazer. I want to keep the ashtray plug always hot for when I need something plugged in with the switch off, but I would like to move One or both sockets under the dash like you described to the switch. Most accessories are designed to work best when their power supply is switched. I use a GPS and a dash cam for work and Iím tired of unplugging them every single time. If you have pictures or w diagram, itís something I can tackle.

Here are posts where I described how I made one of the accessory outlets switched by the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) circuit. I set it up so only one would be switched but my circuit could easily be modified so that both are switched. I believe I most of the supplies from Dell City electrical parts.
