With all of the wiring problems that people have had trying to tap in to the factory wiring system I'm going to suggest a very old school solution. Go down to your favorite auto parts store or even Radio Shack and pick up a terminal block that uses individual fuses for each connection. Connect it straight to the battery with a 12ga - 14ga wire and mount it wherever you want and run all of you accessories off of it.

I ran this search in Google "fused terminal Block" and one of the listings was ebay (of course). Lots of styles to choose from. http://motors.shop.ebay.com/items/fu...0QQ_trksidZm39

Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

I debated on that one last night but he only had a single post. This morning he had 2 more with the same rock crusher krud. Got to use the ban stick on a couple of spammers.
