I recently added a 7 circuit aux fuse block from Painless Wiring under the hood. Gives me 4 switched and 3 constant hot circuits for all my lights and toys. Straight off the battery as previously stated---but a clean way to distribute 12V.

For the love of Mike Please tell me that you are a volunteer Firefighter or something. If I am adding to the ricing out of a Wrangler I will be very grumpy.

If that is the case then where are you mounting the stuff that would make a difference on where I would tap in for power, or where I might run a distribution block. But I’d recommend getting a wire kit built for fog lights something like this. What this kit will do is give you a direct wire to the battery but run it through a relay so it will turn off when you kill the ignition, and give you a fused power source. You can probably find something like this at a parts store like Autozone or something.
