    I have taken a look at a few other threads regarding lighting, more specifically relating to 12V ignition source, but still very hazy in one area.
    If this has been answered else well, maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

    I lurked around the other day and really like the idea of using Blue Sea fuse blocks with a panel mount circuit breaker. Putting lights on the truck excite me, and I would like to add in the future. Did it to my Jeep, but hated all the wires coming off the battery, and looking forward to clean, pseudo-wanna-be-professional install.

    Question: Using relays, power comes from the fuse block. Easy enough. But the power to the switch on the dash, what is the best way to do this from the ignition? I really don't want to head back to the battery for this. Again, clean install.

    Thanks for any help!
