interior lights & radio quit working..fuse?

hey guys just wanted to see if anybody could provide some insight here..i was installing some fog lights so of course i was messing around under the dash..anyway..fogs work great but about 10 minutes into driving down the road my radio quit working and gauge lights turned off..i checked all the interior fuses and they seem fine..is there an underhood fuse for these two things or did i possibly overlook something? everything else works great and the internal radio fuse is still good..seems to be a fuse but i cant find it :/

update: fixed both problems..the lights werent working bc i apprently moved the dimmer switch when i was taking the dash apart (figures, right?) & the radio quit working bc the harness ground was pulled out a fraction of an inch..i like easy fixes..it was just all terrible timing bc of the fog light install..i figured both problems were related to that

& the interior fuse box is right by the top of the parking break

On a YJ it's under the dash on the driver's side next to the e-brake on the firewall.

Always like those "simple" fixes.
