Load Center

I am in the process of adding marker lights between tube steps and pinch welds, raptor type lights in grill and air dam, light bar across rear. I was thinking a load center would be a great idea to keep from having to hack factory harnesses, and not using t-taps or fuse taps. My other thought was to run the feeds from the trailer harness as it has all the connections needed. Does anyone know where a person can find the materials needed to make this work? I've seen the wiring kits for street rods and feel they are quite a bit of overkill. Thanks for your input.

Lots of reading on here. Surely didn't want to ask a question that has been answered 1000 times.

Hers my plan haven't done it yet, waiting till i get fusion bumpers and do it all at once. my plan should be a fairly clean install and look almost factory. looking at taking the Ford Goose neck/ 5th wheel trailer wiring harness FOMOCO part # 13A576 2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty Trailer Towing Jumper Harness | FordParts.com , and cutting that harness and putting in junction box TRUCK LITE CO INC Junction Box Assy, Rnd Surface Mount, Grey - Electrical Boxes - 5LMP0|50400-3 - Grainger Industrial Supply mounted to the frame running all the accessory lights for the junction box. hope this helps you.

For a simple fuse block, look at Blue Sea. They make marine power products. They have some small distribution blocks you could use to feed the various circuits, and relays, fuse holders etc. May not be exactly what you want but will probably get you some ideas
