120 Volt outlet

Before I purchased my focus I test drove an Escape and in the back seat behind the front seat armrest they have a 120V plug so you can plug in a laptop or anything with a pronged plug. In the focus they decided to put another 12V cigarette lighter style plug in that spot.

Is there anyway to remove this and install the plug that was used for the Escape in the Focus? I would really have more use for a 120V. The alternative is buying an inverter which would probably be cheaper but if there is a way to do a clean install I wouldn't mind doing it.

You would need an inverter. The escape just has an inverter hidden somewhere.

You could source an inverter and associated hardware from an escape, but it'd likely be much cheaper to do it all yourself...maybe try grabbing just the outlet from a wrecked Escape to make it look nicer, and splice it into your own inverter.
