I have one under the backseat for the OBA and in the future, lights on the rear bumper. I ran 4ga wire from the battery, under the Jeep and up through the floor. Zero issues. I put an inline 60amp fuse near the battery and the block itself has dual 40amp fuses.

Installed my spacers and dodge rams wheels w/32" bfgs. They are awesome. Truck gained at least 2" of height and it rides and feel much better.

I'm pretty sure you're looking for a distribution block, not a terminal block. The pins on a terminal block are connected to only the pins across from each other. A distro block takes one wire and splits it into 2 or more. Some distro blocks are fused.

Iv got quite a bit of 8ga. Don't plan on running anything crazy like Obama on it.
Edit: iPhone changes "OBA" to "Obama".

Tired balanced and 2 new balljoints.

Looks like I'm going to need tie rod ends, a trackbar, and a new steering stabilizer to cure my DW

On my 95 limited I removed the badges with a paint scraper, pliers and brake fluid lol . I didn't care. It didn't mess up the paint at all though. You just can't rub to hard or the brake fluid will eat up the clear coat.

I'm going use a plastic paint scraper and the adhesive remover. I used to work at a Cadillac dealership and we used adhesive remover and the plastic dealer advertisement plates the dealers put on when you buy the car to remove the badges when we did gold kits lol.

Will look for one of those. I hope advanced has the light I have in mind. And iv got 50ft of 14ga. I Don't plan on running anything huge off of it. But I'll get a fuse holder and fuse it and fuse everything off of it. I don't feel like burning my zj to the ground.

I'll be taking pics throughout the process, started some of the prep work yesterday. For the 2 gal kit, 2 cans of color, 2 extra rollers, a 2inch roller kit, & a qt of Chassis Saver it was about $300... But then figure about another $75 or so for tape, masking paper, plastic drop cloths, extra brushes, rubber gloves & MEK.

I'll be taking pics straight out of the box, & once I get it mixed & start applying.. I'm hoping that it turns out like the Sahara green, I always liked that color.
