Auxiliary Fuse/Relay Bus

I have added lights to my jeep years ago, but I would like to cleanup the wiring. Bi haven't seen any good photos of how people have added a auxiliary fuse panel type. I have done it in the past with previous boats, but they have plenty of room for things. My 2005 TJ there isn't a lot of room. I was thinking maybe down under the brake Booster there is a small area. Anyone have any photos of how the added fuse/relay buses? I have 6 accessories. Something like this photo.

Been looking at these on amazon. Can’t beat the price, just a little bigger than I wanted. I tried to find a three relay box with no luck. Then I found similar switches to mount in the cigarette lighter area on eBay. Like the locker switches/washer switches.

You can go to a junkyard and pull the PDC box from a cherokee and build it how you want it. Take the wiring with you, that way all you need to do is splice in the new wire to your new accessory.

The Blue Sea #5024 will handle four circuits and couldn't be easier to install:

What did you do about the relays?

Not every circuit requires a relay. Of the circuits I am using, only one requires a relay and it is located closer to the appliance/load.

If you are running multiple circuits that require relays you might want to consider a fuse block/relay assembly from Blue Sea rather than the product I linked.

Saw this on Motor Trend tv show. The price is right to me if they don’t rape you on shipping. This is a four relay setup, and they have an eight relay setup for twenty bucks more. I’ve got an Apolitech on my jk, and it’s not as nice as this one.

There's a few open slots in the stock distribution panel. Does anyone know what terminal connectors or other parts would be needed to expand capacity in the stock panel? It would be very clean to add a couple of relays and fuses there.

Good idea. My approach was to buy a scrapped PDC to use the terminals in some of my TJ PDC positions. Haven't done it yet, but I think it's a good approach.
