Fuse Box/Ballast Mounting Idea help

Got my lights and switch mounted but need ideas on where to mount my fuse box and ballast.

The driver side under the hood is too crowded with the alarm and auto start system.

Im thinking of mounting in the cabin but not sure where. Any ideas would be great. Otherwise, it will be mounted on the passenger side close to where the air box is.

Thanks.

How much extra wiring did you need to mount it on the passenger side?

It took around 8ft. to run from the battery to the passanger side. I had a little left over but not much

Check my install...on the fuse box under the hood.
Only place I could mount near the battery.

Such a clean install! Im assuming you left enough cable slack to be able remove the fuse box lid incase you need to access the fuse block?

yes I did.
There is even a trapazoid cut out on the plate to allow the plastic tab to operate correctly.
The mounting screws were also placed to not to interfere with any parts under the factory fuse box cover.
