Fuse box ideas

Does anybody know of any quality inexpensive solutions for an aftermarket fuse panel for the Jeep? I have some lights to wire in soon, and looking for something similar to, but other than those overpriced sPods.

I used the above. 2 years on it's fine.

I am an avid boater (as if the Jeep doesn't suck up my paycheck enough!). Definitely Blue Seas Systems!

I made a bracket out of bent aluminum and used the battery tie down bolt to hold it. it's a good location, since there is a straight path back thru the firewall nearby.

I used a Bussman Fuse Block form Waytech Wire and ended up with an insanely intricate system, i don't think anything else would have worked for me. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015YSWP8C/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_2tb5Cb1C3XY2Q

You build your circuit from scratch, with these waterproof connectors, which let me completely customize the panel. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OS5F58/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_Szb5Cb76ZMVQ3

Heres my build album, but I haven't updated the drawing in a while, i have a proper electric schematic coming soon. https://imgur.com/a/TvfCE

If you are adding only a few circuits another option is the Blue Sea #5024 Battery Terminal Mount Fuse Block:

I built this from parts available on Amazon. If I remember right, it came to less than $50 including the relays.
