Default Adding a 12V outlet to cargo area of WRX?

I have an '02 WRX wagon, and I was thinking it would be handy to have a 12V outlet in the cargo area. I know the Outback Sport had one, so is the wiring already there for one in the rear area? If not, how hard would it be to add the part from an OBS?

It seems to me like you could get the OBS part(s) and in the process ask the parts guy if the wiring harness is there in your WRX Wagon for it or not.

These guys are a fountain of information. My bet is that they have one wiring harness for all Impreza-based vehicles. It's the same distance in/around/through/over all the bits and pieces no matter if it is a 2.5RS, WRX, WRX STI, or Outback. Hell, I'll bet it's the same harness for sedans and wagons. With manufacturing the way it is, the more volume you get out of one part the cheaper it is.

Wiring for a gauge cluster (associated with a turbo let's say) not found on a 2.5RS would just be an adder on the prod line.

I believe I've seen someone selling a harness for this. I think you use a a connector in the rear of the wagon somewhere intended for a trailer harness.
