Wiring in lights need help

I was wondering if there is a way to wire in extra lights on a switch but through the fuse block on the jeep. I would like to make them look like a stock install and not have the relay outside in the open. Nor do I want a extra line hooked up to the battery. IF there is no possible way of doing it like that then I can go to how the directions tell me to do it. I think it kinda looks tacky that way tho.

Thanks for the help.

I want to use the relay but put it into a open slot in the fuse block. That is what I have been trying to say.

You could prolly use the aux power behind the glove box and run that power to a relay with double sided tape holding it in place and then put your switch wherever you like.
All depends on the power load your wanting to put on that fuse.
