Additional fuse box

I’m looking at adding an additional fuse box for accessories. Anyone use the Blue System 6 fuse box? I guess fuse number doesn’t matter but wanting to get different ideas on mounting locations. I think I want it inside the engine compartment due to an alarm that I will be adding to it. Any thoughts?

I have been using the one in the ink below in a couple vehicles for a while now. I have had no problems with it. It is a 100 amp.

$10 bucks on amazon.

I used the the same one from amazon. Works well and illuminates, I think, when fuse is blown. In my cjs I have them mounted adjacent to the main fuse box

I prefer any fuse box that is moisture resistant. Marine applications are my choice (such as the blue sea you are using), although if mounted in the cab, any one will do.



The important issue is that it have a dedicated fused power lead that is the correct size for the fuse.That the total load doesn't exceed the boxes rating.


If the accessories are to be mounted outside the cab, then I would put the fuse box under the hood. I am a huge fan of direct wiring accessories and controlling them with a switch to ground. This cuts your total cab wiring in half and if the control wire shorts out, then instead of blowing a fuse, the accessory simply turns itself on. I also recommend relays for any heavy draw items such as (incandescent) lights.

Knowing how we like to add chit to our Jeeps I wonder is six enough? As to the question you asked in another thread as to where to mount it I suggest under the hood. When I replaced the wiring harness with inline glass fuses in our 74 with one with a 12 circuit fuse box I mounted it on the engine side of the firewall. I'm older, over 6 feet tall, and have bad joints so it is convenient to have it in plain sight and in an easy to get to spot. That would be important if you don't use all the circuits and need access for future needs.
