Show me your...Power distibution, relays, and fuses

Let's see your add-on wiring setups!!

I'm going to be wiring up front flood/fog lights, auxiliary backup light, inverter, full interior lighting, and an electric fan, cd player (no amp). (more stuff later)

I want to wire it up RIGHT with a fuse panel, relay panel and a nice power distribution block. I want to get all the extra wires running from the battery onto a PDC.

I can find lot's of audio stuff, but not what I'm looking for.

Show me yours so I can build mine

Looking for a supplier for these, looks pretty good, but maybe too bulky for my needs

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.

Sorry for the hijack!

I got one of these


These switches


Some relays. Need to grab some wire, terminals, shrink tube locally. Going to check the hardware store for a small plastic utility box to put it all in.

Still wanna see more installs!

For the fan and interior lights I got a on-off-on switch: tempswitch-off-on for the fan, door-off-on for the the interior lights.

Use an extra stock PDC from a TJ, Cherokee, or similar. Buy the tool that allows you to remove and insert terminals.

But CT-Rich... that is beautiful work. How about you do a build thread on that mod there, with pics, part numbers, and estimated costs?

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

ok. I'll play.

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
