my lame-o switch panel and fitchbox ripoff

fitchva gave did this a while back, and its always been in my head to do...

rear 'power center' i call it. 8 ga wire from the battery back. running a 400w inverter, back-up lights, and rear trunk area light.

and i re-wired my lights and everythang and wired my e-fan to an override and shtuff.

project box after some cuttage. i emphasize some, bc i did more.

terminal block for grounds

then i was waiting for my dremel to charge s'more so i looked through my random jeep stuff bag and found a big ole light


tis quite bright. its wayy to big, so its really only temp til i get a nice housing and load it with LEDs or get a nice LED strip. the hardest part is wiring it, so now thats done. its nice with all that power right in the back.

fancy shmancy mounting


and done

it didnt come out as perfect as i'd like, but the box is like 4 dollars and the wiring is the hardest/takes forever. i'll probably get another box, cut it right to the exact dimensions (now that this one fits, and i had to dremel out my dash a bit), paint it krylon black so it matches my center console, maybe add black diamond plate, or a bit of brushed aluminum as an overlay to make it not all black. plus the dull bit i used walked on me a bit and the holes arent perfect. i wanted them separated/close in some spots, but at least even lol.

main part is, they work, and it covers up that hole the new style console leaves.
