It's a good insurance policy is having one of those, it means that whatever else you hurt under the car you've got some chance of maintaining drive to get you to safety.

Soeley, did you have to reduce the length of the bolts that Jimnybits supplied? They looked long to begin with. Very solid looking guard, good value for money too.

No, everything is as supplied. No trimming needed.

Soeley. I read you had a problem with the LED headlights being set too high. I have the same problem but the Jimny is on a tiny Greek island with no dealer. Any idea how they made the adjustment?

Hi Paxijimny, sorry been busy today so didn't get online until now, but I see CC Baxter answered your question in the other thread. Hope you get it sorted.

So I was busy on Saturday fitting my auxiliary fuse box. I made this for my previous car, to allow the fitting of extra electricals without tapping into the original wires and fuses. With this set up, only one cable is required to run to the battery through the bulkhead.

One fuse box is permanent live the other ignition live via the relay. The relay is tapped into the front power socket for activation.

The next stage will be to hardwire my dashcam into it and a phone charging point which I will have permanent live.

So this is the board has I had it fitted to my Toyota iQ.

A bit of rearranging and it now looks like this to fit behind the glove box of the Jimny.
File Attachment:


A spare stud poking out the under felt was used to secure the bottom left corner. They are like a self tapping thread so the buckle from a cable tie pushed on nicely.
File Attachment:


In situ, the top right is sandwiched behind the fan blower mount and bracket.
File Attachment:


Power Magic Pro wired in and Dashcam connected all wires now hidden away up the A-post and behind the headlining.

Both neat and tidy. Much better than the average rat's nest of auxiliary wires one typically finds.

That's a great setup Soeley, really neat. It's motivated me to sort out the tangle of add-a-circuits that's hiding under my dashboard :P

Hope you don't mind some daft questions!

Do you have any details on the parts used to construct it?

On the wiring front is the following setup correct?

- Live (direct from battery terminal?) comes into permanent live fuse holder
- Live goes from perm live to relay (connection 85?)
- Live from relay (connection 86?) goes to switched live fuse holder
- Relay (connection 87?) goes to earth
- Relay (connection 30?) connected to live of front 12v socket in dash for activation

Does the earth wire for the relay only need to be the same gauge as the activation wire on terminal 30?

Are you just taking the live feed for each accessory from the new fuse blocks and then earthing each accessory separately? I was considering something like this, taking the earth direct from the battery to a common earth rail, with each accessory taking their earth from the fuse block.

No daft question Gadget :)

To be honest I can't remember where I got the bits from as it must be about 6 or 7 years since I initially made it, but probably Amazon or Ebay. But basically:
2 x 4 way fuse boxes with common feed like the one you linked.
30amp relay with relay holder (could do it without the holder).
The cable ties are the ones that have a tang on them to fasten to the board.
The actual board is made from a plastic A4 clipboard.

The wiring front you have guessed correct (not sure of relay terminal numbers though).
Yes the earth wire is the same gauge as the activation wire.

Yes each accessory will be earthed separately, there are two earth point behind the passenger foot well trim.

Fitted the switch, fits and works perfectly. Only thing not done yet is to connect the illumination wire to the dash light circuit, will do that at weekend. It does illuminate when switched on though.
