upfitter question

ok so im wanting to wire up a 20" led light bar. says 120watts at 12 volts which if i did my math right it should pull right about 10 amps.

upfitter #1= 25amps (already used for plow lights)
upfitter #2= 25 amps (already used for strobe lights)
upfitter #3= 10 amps
upfitter #4= 15 amps (already used for led back up lights)

is there any way to bump upfitter #3 up to 15amps or will i be okay to run my light the way it is. I was looking through my owners manual and seen the fuses for aux 1 and 2 but didnt show any fuses for aux 3 and 4? if worse comes to worse i could switch my back up lights to 3 and run my light bar off the aux 4 with 15amps. let me know what you guys think. the place i bought the light bar off of said to run a 30 amp fuse for the light bar but that seems too big. I dont know hopefully someone can help me out. thanks

Well if worse comes to worst then you could just use a relay on your upfitter to trigger the light.
