Like I said, me personally, I'm a fan of a big stack of lug terminals on my positive battery clamp... Just sayin... It's worked fine for me since I was 16y/o so why change now?

AND FWIW, the Spod is probably the best investment anyone with a full bodied rig that has a factory wiring system in tact could ever get for electrical accessories.

So where are these spods available at and for how much?
I am simply getting power and fusing the accessories at this block rather than at the battery. The relays and switches will be used as intended by the accessories' manufacturers. All wiring will be run inside a sheath and grommets at body points to prevent chafing.
I may be going about this in the wrong way? Maybe I should just build a small bracket and mount it closer to the battery with open space to mount relays on said bracket. I had not planned on running ANY accessory through just a switch, that's a bad time waiting to happen for sure!

Just in case anybody here thinks they can sell their car for what they put into it plus labor, you should talk to this guy!! I honestly think that it is powr's kin.

So where in this does the fuse block come into play? Think of electrical components that use a relay as having a high side and a low side. The circuit with the switch is the low side because it uses less power. The side with the component would be the high side. Where in you grand plan are these fuses going to go? Low side before the switch? Low side after the switch? High side before the relay? High side after the relay but before the component? High side after the component?

Because you can run all the switches off of one fuse, I am going to assume you are planning on running this on the high side? So you are going to have relays in the engine compartment running the wiring to and from? You just doubled the amount of wiring you are going to be using. Maybe you are planning on running it between the switch and relay? That is probably not the greatest being that that circuit is already protected by the fuse before the switch. So are you going to run this before or after the relay?

The fuse block is essentially replacing the fuses on the white and yellow wires here. The relays will stay under the hood, or wherever they need to be due to length, but the white/yellow ones will be lengthened, if needed. They're already quite long. All I'm doing is removing connections from on/around the battery.

By that diagram, you are using two fuses for each component. Does your fuse block have enough room for that?

I believe so, depending on what eventually gets added to it. Currently, there will be plenty of slots for everything, with some room to grow.

you will want to run all of your control voltage off of one fuse and circuit. Then the circuit can break off into parallel circuits to power each relay.


If you want to get all fancy you can run a relay for your switched power and have the relay close using accessory power from the Jeep. This way none of the switches will be active without the key on (Keeps your battery from going dead.)
