tj fog lights and hella windshield lights

thanks in advance for reading.

i was planning on wiring my junkyard tj fog lights and my hella windshield lights to the same wire coming from the battery. the wire has an inline fuse but i was wondering what fuse should i put in there? 10amp or like a 20amp. this wire was to a really crappy amp that i just recently pulled out but was like, Hey! i can use this wire for my lights! it has a 30amp fuse in it right that too much?

Depends on the size/gauge of the wire. If it's a 8 gage or larger, you will be ok.

But, I would put 2 fuse holders just 6-8" away. Then run a separate circuit for each pair of lights. Use 2 relays, but you can have just 1 switch controlling both relays if you like, or 1 switch for each relay if you want separate control.

Use a fuse sized for each pair of lights depending on wattage (amps to be drawn).

If I were you I would wire the fog and windshield lights on separate circuits. I like the idea of being able to choose what set of lights I want on/off at any particular time. Anyhow, however you do it do not skimp on the wiring and that includes the ground.
