Default Using Stock Fuse Box
I was wondering if somebody could walk me through the steps to wire into the stock fuse box. I know that you can use the empty spots in the fuse box, but I don't know how. Any suggestions? I want it to look as stock as possible

What is it that you are trying to wire in?

For something as simple as LED's I really don't have anything to offer. I was assuming it was for a winch, lights, locker, or something Jeep related. In which case there are much better alternatives than wiring straight to the fuse box.

Ok, so if you wanted to wire up some aftermarket fog lights, how would you wire them into the stock fuse box for example

If I was using anything that had any real amount of draw to them I would keep it isolated from the factory fuse box, and use either a SPOD or a 12VoltGuy package.

That 12voltguy stuff is awsome. Maybe if I get a Wrangler I can run some of his stuff
