5th Gen 4runner - easiest/safest way to reroute the rear outlets to my Dual Battery SPOD?

Need a little help with being able to route the power of my dual battery (2nd battery) from the existing factory 12v and 120v AC factory plugs that are In the trunk of my 5th gen 4runner.

I could just terminate the lines going to the outlets now and wire in from my SPOD open channels and run new lines...

I know I could just run an entire new line(s) from the SPOD to the rear to power my fridge or anything else I want to have powered when the car is off, but I like the OEM plug ins and I don't want to buy an aftermarket plate as of yet.

Anyone attempted this? Thoughts?

How good are your wiring skills?

It looks like you could tap into the wiring for both the inverter and rear power outlet behind the left side of the dash.

I see a light green wire that powers the outlet. A blue wire that sends power to the inverter. But I see some switches and other assemblies that need power as well. It’ll take a little ingenuity to get it all work together.

There 3 power outlets but I am unsure if that is part of the rear or not

I didn't move forward. I ended up adding another rear panel as opposed to messing around with the stock electrical.... I figured it would be easier and safer in general.

Keeping add-ons separate from stock systems is always a good idea.
