Power distribution options

I'm on a search for a power distribution panel to run all the after market electronics .. lights/amps/compressor/etc.

Figured I'd throw a hook out here and see if anyone has suggestions. Looking for something with:

- fused high amp circuits
- fused low amp circuits
- relay sockets
- covered (water proof/resistant for under-hood mount)
..basically the same options an OEM power panel would include.

I've found a few options (Blue Sea, etc) but not all the features i'm after.
Starting to think this may have to be a custom build or a trip to the junk yard to pull a PDM out of a Jeep or something.


Here's one that comes close, but no relay sockets

i need some type of power management as well or at least i will very soon.

i have no idea what i need though lol. how do you integrate the relays from all the after market harnesses? as of now i have a winch i'm adding in the next few days. i also have the hellas behind the grill the vision-x leds and the arb fog lights in the near future i also plan on adding onboard air and lockers. i need some type of solution to all the wiring what do you suggest for me lol.

sorry to thread jack but, you seem to understand more about this stuff than i do.

i have like 4 relays and wire harnesses as of right now. i'm also adding a winch and in a couple of months going with a yellow top optima deep cycle battery. but before the end of the up coming summer i also plan on gearing and adding lockers at both ends and an onboard air system. then i'm going to up grade the alternator with a mean green and possibly have another battery solely for the winch.

..pick up a unit from Blue Sea (http://bluesea.com/category/81/21/pr...e/overview/431) and buddy up with a 12V geek to help you wire it.

I'm starting to think a unit like that WITH relay sockets doesnt exist. Everything I've found so far has the relays running separately.

I used a blue sea fuse box and made a panel that it mounts to with space for relays. After doing all of that I found the one below that looks pretty good too.
