how have you been wiring up multiple lights?

i know i can search, and i will end up searching later today, but i do not have time right now and wanted to get a probe out there to see what you have been doing for wiring up multiple lights....

i currently have some PIAAs and Hellas set up



i have the PIAAs wired where i can have them on anytime the truck is on and the Hellas are on an on-off-on switch where they can do the same as the PIAAs or some on with my high beams...

i am looking to install some more hellas as back lights, most likely grabbing some lights for under my future sliders and also planning on installing some bed lights....

my questions are:
#1 how can i prevent a spiderweb of wires in my engine compartment?

#2 should i get another fuse box?

#3 any suggestions on a switch setup within the cabin to keep shit organized?

#4 is it worth getting a dual battery set up?



and like i said before...yes i know...USE THE SEARCH!! but i can't right now to pull in all the answers i need, so if you want to drop some knowledge..thanks, much appreciated...
if you want to tell me to use the search function...

my questions are:
#1 how can i prevent a spiderweb of wires in my engine compartment? wire loom; stay parallel to vehicle wiring; diagram before install

#2 should i get another fuse box? There are plenty of unused power tabs in the fuse box already.

#3 any suggestions on a switch setup within the cabin to keep shit organized?Only after you shed info on how many additional light circuits-but here's one; keep activation to ground (OEM) that way you'll have one bundle to switches and switches to ground. Not back and forth.

#4 is it worth getting a dual battery set up? Add up all the power the additional lights and other future circuits; if they pass 100 amps then up the alternator. If your gonna stay in the woods all lit up then additonal battery with isolator.



i can't right now to pull in all the answers..so if you want to drop some knowledge..thanks, ...
