I needed easy switched power for lights and winch. This is what I did.

Pic 1. Using a small screwdriver push the fuse block release tab.
Pic 2. Find the Black-White wire with gold dots. This should be the switched and fused 12v outlet lead according to the service manual.
Pic 3. Setup a power tap with a pigtail.
Pic 4. Attach it to the Pic 2 wire.
Pic 5. Attach the pigtail to a terminal block.

Hook up your trigger wires.

Any idea how many amps this can handle, I'm thinking of adding a blue sea 5029 fuse block and powering the fuse block with that for lights, stereo etc. Just wanna make sure it can carry load, if not then guess that wire could power a relay in the fuse blocks power wire.

Unless I read his post wrong, he is using this for "switched" power so it's not under any load

I may be confused but it would have a load at some time, switched power would be powered when switch is on, un-powered when switch is off wouldn't it? And with that you would either be using the power from that to power a relay or straight away to power something....most likely a relay I would think which I think is the way I will go.

Right, if you're using it for a relay it's minimal draw, not like if you were trying to power a light or something
