No matter. You may not be aware, but in the 1DIN-sized panel dead center in the overhead above the rearview mirror, you have a 12vDC pre-wire for the addition of a CB radio or other 1DIN accessory. It would not be difficult to pop off the blank (I find a metal dental pick works great to pry it off), drill it for the installation of two or three 12vDC power outlets, and then wire said outlets into the 12vDC pre-wire, pop the modified blank back in (and make sure that circuit has the right fuse) and presto, more power outlets just as you want and easier than drilling the top of the dashboard.
No blank after the 2014.5 models. Entire area covered with felt type material.

Jerry,

That link proved very helpful! I was not aware of the Bussmann device - I'm off to the auto parts store. I need to power the backup GPS, Radar Detector and the TPMS.
This add a device to the fuse block will greatly reduce the problems of installation - and it's cheap!
Thanks for sharing it.

Having just driven 2500 miles in 6 days of driving with at least 1 530mile day I can say at 6'2" I was pleasantly surprised at how I felt at the end of the day. With liberal use of cruise control to move my right leg around a bit. No discomfort for me anyway. Of course your mileage may vary.

Personally I (5'8") have found the front seats the most comfortable in any vehicle I've ever owned. I can drive for four hours, get out, and there's no stiffness that needs to be worked out. I drive for two hours in my 2010 Tahoe and it takes five minutes to work the kinks out.
