    Does anyone know where or how to get extra connectors for the fuse box in our trucks? I want to add a couple fused circuits for my driving lights and aux. reverse lights, and would like to add them directly in to the fuse box for factory appearance. There are several unused slots, and some appear to be hot. I have not had the fuse box apart yet, but it looks like the mini-fuse connectors are probably fairly proprietary, and I would not be so sure that I could get them from the dealer. The relay sockets should be able to use just plain spade connectors (I hope), but I only need one of those for the driving lights. Any help is appreciated!

    Yeah the Add-A-Fuse is the way to go. I used an unused slot in the fuse panel that's "hot" when the parking lamps are on to trip the relay for my foglamps.

    Thanks for the replies! That will work great to run the relays, not near enough juice for the lights themselves though. I was just hoping to install the main power for the lights through the fuse box, instead of adding an external fuse block. I just like the factory look. I know someone on here has done it before, but do not remember who it was.
