    How do you run extra lines for accessories to the stock battery? Are there special adapters to the terminals that I can use instead of getting a new battery with marine terminals or hacking the OEM connectors?

    Yes, sorry always put a in line fuse to any hot wire you install

    "This requires a breaker in front of it. Don't just run it straight to the battery"

    Got it. Thanks. I just went to look at the OEM positive connector again, and it does have a 12mm or so stud that I can tap into just like your setup. Does the ground from your fuse box go back to the battery negative or to the frame? Or it doesn't matter?

    You can also use a plain distribution block, depending on what your acessories/needs are. Just keep in mind the warnings on fuse locations for the block and for the accessories
