There's probably a thread of course I can't find. I'm using a Howell efi vortec harness, if you're familiar you know they have a fuse block requiring 12v ignition switched, 12v constant and a connection inside the truck for the purple starter signal wire.
I'm trying to figure out a clean permanent source for these that doesn't stand out and looks almost factory. I don't want to plug into the front of the fuse block even though it was done from the factory, it seems to me they would be easy to knock out with my foot if not careful. Let me know what you guys came up with thanks

You could have been slightly more vaguely

For the tow rig, what year?

The factory accessory terminal connectors lock in place. I don't see why or how you would ever be hitting the fuse panel with your foot, unless you are 7' tall?

'84 is still the "old" style blade fuse panel with fewer spare terminals as I recall, but there should be a few terminals on there that are free. They aren't fused, but if you are just powering another fuse panel, then no big deal.
