Additional Fusebox?

So, off the wall idea here.

I'm running several sets of Aux lights, a winch, compressor, ARB's, and several additional power outlets.

Is there an easy way to install another fuse box so each power line can have its own blade fuse? I could install it in the glove box, or in the engine bay.

Give me some ideas on how you all have solved this issue.

What else am I not thinking of on this issue?

great idea! would be real simple to do, and would keep from piggybacking other circuits, or going direct. get a fuse block,wire it to power, then wire all your gadgets to it, simple! plus, very easy to add new goodies to!
i like it!

Fuse Blocks and Fuse Panels

Something like this with the 6 fuse setup would work I think.

Where would I tap into for power? Off the battery directly?

I put one of the Painless Performance Cirkit boss ones in my rig and love it. Very clean and easy to work with. Plus this one allowed some switched and some unswitched circuits.
