West Marine has a nice fuse panel. I got a much cheaper panel from Foothill Offroad and then mounted it and the relays to a plate that is then mounted to the bracket that used to hold the stock jack. Not the prettiest but it works. There was also a thread on here a couple of days ago about using late model GM boxes.
Here's an old pic of mine...

Cool, I'll check it out. I like the pre-wired relay blocks I see everywhere, but there is no way to mount them without using the relay tab. I was hoping to find a 4 or 6 position relay block (for cheap, of course)
I was hoping to get some better ideas for electrical management from this thread. I picked up a PDC from a neon as per a junkyard thread recommendation I just haven't implemented it yet. Anyone have a writeup on them? The wires are everywhere and kinda confusing me. I'm sure the OP would find it useful as well.
CT-Rich, brother, that box and panel set up is SICK!!!!!! Well done.

Blue Seas 12 circuit fuse block with ground terminals. Mounted on firewall above the battery tray. Wired to the battery with some leftover 4 gauge amp power cable I had floating around.
Dont seam to have a pic, but I mounted a piece of 1"x1" box tube across the firewall as well that I have all my relays mounted to.
then there is my home made aluminum switch panel. Every accessory has a relay and a fuse. I used cat6 cable from the switch panel to each relay since the activation side of the relay takes next to no juice to activate and it let me just run one nice clean cable from the panel to the relay bank. each switch has an LED to indicate power on. the gauge is for my on board air
2 switches dont do anything at the moment (the 2 at the right side) but they are all wired up to fuses and relays for when i decide to add something else. first 2 switches are for an in cab winch control. left is to arm it, the right is straight off a spare warn winch controller, even trimed the plate for the in and out graphics
