any video of how you installed it.
Sorry I don't have a video but the pictures I originally posted shows everything to get the job done. If you run into any problems let me know and if I know you'll know, lol.

I pulled the aft face off of the center console, and found that there is no wiring for the USB or 12v, but there is a "cubby" between the two A/C registers, and I took it out.
I measured for clearance, and was good to install the outlets there.
Using the bracket that came with it as a template, I drilled two holes to fit using my Harbor Freight step drill. I put the cubby back into the console face, and now, just have to run power to it. That will be tomorrow. Will probably use a mini 2 fuse tap on the circuit that powers the 12v outlet on top of the dash.... more to come.

Here’s the rest of the installation...
I drilled and tapped for a ground screw. Removed the lower four bolts securing the console, so I could lift it about 1/2 inch at the rear.
That allowed me to stuff the red power wire underneath it. I had previously put the wire into “snakeskin” to protect from chafing. By pulling on either end, I was able to position the wire where I wanted it.
I then secured the ground, crimped the power and ground wires, ran them in a wire loom, and secured them with a nylon clamp to an existing screw.
All that was left was to button up the console, snap in the rear bezel, and power up for testing. Worked as designed.
