There's a shit-ton of places to mount this, if I may ask, why do you need a seven circuit fuseblock? I currently have three aftermarket wiring harnesses on my JK and don't need this hardware, but I'd like to discuss your needs........
(one harness is home made)

I'd post a pic of a Painless in my YJ, but the wide-open spaces in a YJ just don't exist in a JK. There is some space in the 07-11 engine bay, but the 12 doesn't have a lot of space for anything. I've already added one accessory, and just went direct to battery with an inline fuse. You can't run a winch off your Painless, so that has to go direct to battery anyway. I think there might be some room in/around that battery tray, but you may have to fabricate a mounting plate. Contact Painless, and they may have some suggestions. A local welding shop that specializes in dune buggies did several mods on my YJ, so that's another source. Good luck, and post pics when you get that Painless mounted.

I mounted mine near the battery. It keeps the higher amperage stuff out of the cab. I'll post pics later this afternoon.

How do you get a wire from the battery into the interior of a JK? I want to hook up my radar detector.

There's a rubber seal in the firewall on the drivers side, under the dash.

I ended up mounting in the center console. Used a butterfly bit and drilled a hole to run the wires. Was worried about the relay getting moisture on/in it like you have in the picture Cavset 74 posted Thanks for all the comments and ideas. I will post a picture of my destruction tomorrow.
