UpGraded Battery

i just went from a 600 to a 800 battery. dude said cause of the winch and lights and the 117 amp alt. but now my lights are blowing fuses ...should i just up the fuse or would rewiring with bigger gauge wire be better? (it blows fuse as soon as i flick one switch for the after market lights. i have 3 sets.)

The bigger battery isn't causing your fuses to blow, something else is causing it. Maybe whoever dropped the battery in damaged nearby wiring at that time. Examine your wiring and you DID use a relay in your driving light circuit to power those lights right?

When you have a choice, buy American.

Blown fuses usually means a short.
