120v plugs for vehicles

so i need to select a plug for my ZJ build. i want to put a few 120v outlets. There are a few out there. house plugs, OEM parts from modern vehicles or simple plugs.




i like the OEM style since it has a cover and an indicator light showing that power is flowing. but they are more expensive and require the purchase of a special plug to wire it.

any thoughts?

seems like presonal preference to me. those "proprietary" plugs with "special" connectors could just consist of 3 blade terminals, which you could easily connect some crimp terminals to. Would have to see more pictures, or the part in person. Or, the special connector could be easily found online as a pigtail, if you know the year/make/model of the vehicle they came in. Could always check junk yards too! in my opinion, i would choose whichever is easier to make the hole in the dash (or wherever) for. that's why i prefer round-bodied switches and lights over square/rectangle-bodied, for example.
