has anyone heard a reason behind this? many ppl dont know about it I assume but if you look in the owner manual of my 2006 it specifically says not to use the cigerette lighter on the center of the dash for a 12v plug. wtf? anyone have any ideas why? and does anyone use that outlet regularly and encounter any problems?
Don't you have a 12 Volt power plug? I have one on my 95. You are correct there is really nothing wrong with using the cigarette lighter plug. I have the caution about not using the cigarette lighter for power as well and I really don't know why.
My Carbon foot print is 57 tons per year, and that doesn't count my fart gas. I spend my carbon offset money on my 1995 F150 Flareside with a carbon spewing 5.0L V8.

Every time I try and use it it won't work so IDK what the deal is. That is my only complaint with the interior of these trucks, not enough 12V outlets!
my truck has three..how many do you need?
