Power Distribution Center Internal Wiring

I have searched high and low but cannot find any pictures or documentation on opening up the PDC, accessing the internal wiring and using open relay and fuse connections for additional power needs. Does anyone have any experience doing this?

Thanks,

Seems possible, you'll have to find the correct crimp terminals for the fuse block however.

Not so worried about the crimp terminals, at this point I can't find how to separate the top of the PDC from the bottom - any ideas?

(I am kind of anal in wanting to run wiring as neat as possible - 100 years ago I started out as a ground radio tech in the service and then I worked for a telecommunications company called MCI - they were freaks about good wiring practices, and this YJ is a MESS!)).

I spent a day looking last year... didn't find any pics or info. Why string extra relays and fuses around when there are all those empty spaces in there? I'm not sure there are even contacts behind those empty slots though... Also they're rarer than hen's teeth on eBay.

Although since then, I have learned to search for Cherokee parts of the same year, which are sometimes identical.

in my PDC, the empty relay sockets seem to have metallic connectors in them. The mini-fuses look the same also. And the relay sockets follow standard 30 - 85 - 86 - 87 - 87a pin-out.
