Anyone seen a better deal on a Accessory power module than 450?

    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    $30 for a fusebox out of a Saturn SL2. 8 hi-amp fuses, 2 hi-amp relays, 6 standard relays, 6 battery fuses, 6 ignition fuses, and 8 fuses on circuits I can't figure out yet. All in a nice, compact, stock-looking package that fits nicely right next to the stock fusebox. Some wiring knowledge/expertise is a must, but easy if you have it.
    For the ignition trigger, I used the Fogs Anytime source to trigger a marine-grade sealed 85-amp constant-duty solenoid that supplies power to the remaining ignition circuits (including hi-amp fuses).
    Been running this setup for coming up on a year. No issues, no problems, nothing to report except perfect satisfaction. And it's seen some severe bumps and bruises over some unforgiving terrain......including a rollover :anonymous:
    If I were to turn everything on my auxiliary circuit on at once, I'd probably be drawing nearly 100 amps. And I have TONS of expansion room to go!
    00-guage cable for the battery feed, btw.

    I could get my hands dirty and put on a lift kit but electricity and I do not get along, so I would not be trying this with my know how that's for sure.

    Somewhat of an apples vs oranges comparison in this case but they would get the job done.... just not sure if they would hold up to the elements under the hood like the one I posted but that thing is almost 500 bucks. Exploring other options myself. Starting to lean towards pulling something out of a junker and schooling myself on the electrical system.

    Honestly I would not pay $450 for that. You could go with a Blue Sea fuse box.
