Today I was bored, so I took the plastic shell off of the center counsil (with all the switches etc) and it just so happens that the face of the SmartCord of my Passport fits perfectly into one of the blanks. It's the standard cig lighter plug. I don't want to buy the direct wire cord, I'm too cheap. Anyway, my question is, can I get a cigg lighter from another car, attatch the wire to my cigg lighter, and have power for both of those? If so, I would plug the Passport cord into the second cig lighter, put the display through a blank switch, and shove the extra cig lighter behind the plastic and close it up, then wire it under the steering wheel and up through the a-pillar. Thank in advance.

Right, but I want a smooth integration and the extra cigg lighter would be hidden behind the counsil. That thing is hideous.

How does the a-pillar come apart/is this a good place to hide the running wire?

Yes. It pops right off after removal of the rubber welt around the door frame. Don't apply a lot of bending force to get the a-pillar moulding off. Wiggle it a bit and apply a light, but steady, force.
