    Hi,
    I am considering installing a pair of fog/driving lights on my '97 TLC. Should I simply tap into the fuse box for power or is there a better and safer way? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    You can tap into the fuse box to fire the relay off the tail lamp fuse like I did, but the power source should be the bat-tree. Lights can draw some current, don't chanow. Some power related companies sell distribution blocks that you feed from the battree, but if you poke around for a while you'll find them cheaper. Theyre handy for powering all of the crap that you wind up adding over the years like blenders and microwave ovens and tv sets.

    dt, welcome to the forum. Besides doggie's lovely personality that even his wife hates, he is spot on with this. After all, he should know especially after seeing the nightware timebomb of my truck. Do it right the first time by getting a good distribution block. Will save you time, money and headaches down the road.
