    Hmmm I really like this. I might have to use a similar setup for my Z as I gotta re-wire it anyway... :D

    looks great.

    1 question though. Since power is straight off the battery, won't all of your accessories be hot all the time?

    Looks great! But I really dont understand the wiring of this stuff, lol.
    From the + battery, you run a wire to the 100a circuit breaker, then from circuit breaker to the fuse block? Is there a ground coming off that fuse block to the - battery terminal (think I answered my own one here... gnd comes off the back and hard to see I think)? From there, you just ground any accessory and run power to one of the terminals on the block?
    Are the 187 series breakers ok to go w/? One you listed seems to be being phased out.
    This looks like a great setup, and would be awesome as I start to add accessories, I'm just partially retarded when it comes to the actual wiring :eek:

    Yep you got it. You don't have to run grounds for your accessories back to the block though. You can ground them anywhere. I just did it to try and keep things visible so I can trace them if necessary.

    Those breakers should be fine. Just a new look to replace the old ones. Do the same thing though.

    I had a similar setup on my 2004 Tacoma, without the custom powder coated mount.

    You did a nice, clean job.
