Water Resistant Fuse/Relay box for wiring extras!
 
I never could find a fuse box that would house the relay together in one unit, that would also seal everything nicely from the elements (IE: Dust, Dirt, Mud, Rain, Snow and etc.)

So I took it upon my self to come up with something. I had the help of member on here as well, Thanks Joe! They offer bus and non-bus sides and amperage being a concern I came up with two different versions.

The fuse/relay box has 10 fused slots and can hold 5 small relays that are rated up to 35amps (which is way more than any moderate lights/hid kits that are for sale now) The 5 relays take up 5 spots, therefore I have 5 extra spots to tape in to for other extra items if need be.

What I did was make 2 different versions. The 1st version uses three power wires to the battery and this allows the user to power pretty much anything he/she can think of. It offers almost double the amperage capacity as the 2nd version. The 2nd version has only one power wire going to the battery and allows up to 80 amps of draw on the box. Just to give you a idea my 100 watt and 130 watt KC lights only pull 12 and 13 amps. This box can still power pretty any off roader needs, I did the first version for testing and for if I came very serious about 4 wheeling.

Here is what I came up with.

These are the switches and the lens colors I have got.

1st verison

The color wires are for the relay triggers that go to the switch.
The single black wire is the power wire to the switches to give them the power to trigger the relay once the switch is turned on.
- The big red wire goes to the battery.

Looks great! :thumb:

You and Joe have the slickest set ups I've seen for this kind of stuff.

Yep, definitely going to hound you to get one of these into my Jeep . . . :D

So where did you get the parts, do you know the part numbers?

I'm guarding interest to see if there is a market for these. I'm talking to the moderator now about being a vendor and selling these and other electronics on here.

1222 07-13-2011 11:19 AM

I understand and hope it works out for you.:thumb: Good luck.
:)

Djstorm100 07-14-2011 12:23 AM

I'm waiting on wire as it was on back order, but I'll have the finished product done soon as a kit. I'm guarding interest right now, until I become a vendor.

Who's interested?

Well me, obviously. :D

And I bet there'll be a number of others if this is presented the right way. PM sent.

Looks pretty slick

Djstorm100 09-05-2011 01:46 AM

Don't much much about wiring or anything at all?
Don't want to pay 400+ for other companies wiring harness?

This is "The Black Box" It is a small in size but packs a huge punch! Inside is 5 relays that can power anything up to 35 amps. I design this system to help people wire up extra accessories like lights, CB, Air compressors without worrying if they installed it correctly. One of the awesome things about this system is that you can use the the stock OEM wiring harness to trigger the relay on/off!!! Like all systems on the market there is a little wiring you will have to do but the instructions make it a breeze!!

Benefits for using this system are:

  1. Can use the OEM harness to trigger the relays on/off. It is the only Wiring Harness that can do this on the market!
  2. It comes ready to install!
  3. Can be place anywhere in the jeep if not using it on a JK, or if the customer wants to place the box else where.
  4. It is expandable, It has 10 power fused slots, 5 of which are used for relays. So there are 5 extra slots to tap in to power for (like using a CB or for power to another relay)
  5. Small in size. It is little bigger than a Iphone. 3.39 Inches by 4.44 Inches.
  6. It can handle 80 amps current VS Spod ( for example) only being able to handle 50 amps. That could be extra lights used to help in a emergency while on the trials
  7. Most Importantly everything is fused. Main feed line, The Relays, Trigger wires.
  8. Very Water Resistant so if you go through the mud or water hole you will not have to worry about damaging the box or components inside or around it.
  9. Install is Incredibly easy. It took me 1.5 hour to install in a friends Jeep

I can also add in weatherpack connections
If you ever had to take off a light, bumper, any extra accessory you can simply un-clip the connection versus having to cut and then later reconnect everything.

I used these switches and have alot let over. As I bought them in Bulk
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...s/DSCN0471.jpg

Also have relay connectors as well to wire in new relays If I ever need more than 5

Install Is easy and simple.

1st: Disconnect the battery and remove the ground wire here (10mm)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...s/DSCN0490.jpg



2nd: Un-clip the Evap purge Solenoid
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...N0488-Copy.jpg

3rd: Un-clip the 4 tabs that hold the fuse box in and lift out of the way.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...s/DSCN0492.jpg

4th: Remove the battery hold down bolt (10mm)


5th: Place the fuse box with the wire pointing toward the passenger side fender. Then place the bracket that is facing toward the front under the large wire loom that comes from the fuse box. Finally place the rear mounted bracket on top of the battery hold down and place the bolt through that. Give the bolt a couple of turns but don’t completely tighten.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...s/DSCN0491.jpg


6: Run the wire loom along with the wire that said “HOT” in to the cabin to where you would like the switches to mount at. The hot wire is to power the switches and it’s on to “Daisy Chain” the switches for power as they pull less than 1 amp. Wire up the switches accordingly to the manufacture of your switch.

7: Next take the bundle of wires and route them away from moving parts and heat. Connect the lead to the accessory you are trying to power. You will have to supply a ground for the other side of the accessory

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...s/DSCN0495.jpg

8: Connect the Red 8 gauge wire and fuse to the positive side of the battery and then connect the small black wire to the negative side of the terminal.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...00/photo-1.jpg


9: Turn the switch on and enjoy your “Black Box”

Here is one I made the idea of adding more than 5 accessories later.

cbass1187 12-31-2011 05:21 PM

is this still available.....
 
I know this is an older thread, but hoping it is still around.
Did you ever figure out if this is marketable......how much for this set up?

I'm with you on hoping it's still around. I'd be interested if the price is reasonable. Wiring in stuff is always the biggest PITA

Djstorm100 01-01-2012 11:26 AM

I'm still around, pm me

Who's interested?

Didn't read full thread--maybe should have--but before something distracts me--I am interested for a '04 TJ Sport and a '12 JK --one question on board air or winch compatilble--assuming not running everything else at same time?? I.E. probably wouldn't need OBA and winch and lights all at once. Would like to run 2 sets KC and winch at the most at one time--and that would be a maybe.

Would version 1 be enough? Work on both? How about mounting?

RPDjeep 01-02-2012 02:37 AM

I'm interested in 1 for a '06 TJ.

Thehumbucker 02-13-2012 02:50 PM

Pm sent. Very interested.

Thanks for the interest guys

Djstorm100 02-20-2012 09:47 PM

I'm getting a lot of postive feed back from you guys, thanks for the help. Started to do winch wiring control inside the cabin.

just sent you a PM... did not see this was still current..

Just installed my box in my 2008 JKU. Very simple install and wiring. If you plan on adding powered accessories to your Jeep, you need this box!

mrbullitt 04-22-2013 09:13 AM

Can I get a price shipped to 32809 please! I've only got windshield lights and wanted to get something like this before the wiring became too extensive to re-due.

Hey guys, I'm still around barely lol.

shortly after dealing with my grandfarther and dad's surgery, I got laid off. With income tight couldn't afford to keep stock to build these, I do it a hobby and don't make alot off these. Then 2 weeks ago I got diagnose with type 1 diabetes at the sametime lost 2 local car enthusiast to cancer. It's been a rough few months. I'm still trying to out source some items (staying in the US of course) to make turn around time quicker.

Looking late April


Sorry to hear about this. Hope you can get back on your feet.

Davidsjeep 06-23-2013 02:42 PM

Does anyone know of anything like this on the market? I guess there's the SPOD. But I'm wondering if there's anything just like what this guy made here in this thread. Thanks!

I've got Rear lights, windshield mount, hood, and bumper lights to hook up.
