With inspiration from toobluetacoma06 I installed my Blue Sea Fuse Block, Circuit Breaker and Amp Fuse Holder onto a custom built mounting plate. I went a little different route then him but it's pretty much the same thing.
With the Blue Sea Fuse Block you can connect all of your accesories that you may have added (HID Lights, Driving Lights, Bed Lights, Underhood lights, Rock lights) to your truck without directly running them to your battery creating a mess of wires!
- (1) 6" x 10" (16ga) sheet of steel
- (1) 10" piece of right angle steel
- Blue Sea Fuse Holder
- Blue Wave Circuit Breaker (something similar)
- Tsunami Fuse Holder w/Voltage Meter (or something similar)
- About 5' of 4ga wire
- About 1' of 1/2" shrink tubing (I used red and black)
- Gold Rings for connecting 4ga wire
- Not needed but I also used TechFlex to cover the 4ga wire
I didn't take any pictures of the prepping the mounting plate but it is very simple to do...
You may need to cut the sheet metal to a 6" x 10" piece. Then you will also need to cut a 2" square notch in one of the corners so that when you mount it to the fender well you will still have access to the OEM Fuse Block.
I then riveted the right angle steel onto the sheet metal creating a tray that can now be mounted to the side of the fender.
Then mock up where you are going to place the items and then drill holes. Prep then paint and ready to intall. I used a rustoleum textured paint because it matches other items on my truck that I have used the same paint on.
The wiring is very simple to do. From the Blue Sea Fuse Block there will be 1 positive wire to the circuit breaker. From the circuit breaker you connect directly to the battery. Then the ground wire coming off the Blue Sea Fuse Block will also go straight to the negative post of the battery.
All of your accessories will then be connected directly to the Fuse Block also including the grounds if needed.
I am know I am missing a few things about prepping and running wire. All I can recommend is to take your time. Make sure all of the wires you make are clean and properly soldered or crimped. I am very meticulous on this but it's the attention to detail that really stands out for a clean and factory looking install.

Attention to detail!
