    Strange question, but my baja designs s8 light bar has a running light/ drl feature in it and I want to tap it into something under the hood. Don't really want to mess with tapping directly to the headlight, or running another cable through the firewall. Any ideas under the hood that i can tap into? Add a fuse somewhere in the fuse box? thanks!

    You have a number of options in your under hood fuse box you could use an add-a-fuse. Do you want them to come on with the headlights? Add-s-fuse to one of the headlight fuse locations. Check the fuse locations schematic inside the fuse box cover. If you use and add-a-fuse in the under hood fuse box, be sure to file a small hole on the backside of the fuse box for the wire you use to go through. If you don't, the cover will not seat properly and will rub on the wire.

    Find one with continuous power that way whatever you tap into doesn’t have to be on for the lights to work.

    I wanna say there is a thread somewhere on here that lists which ones have power all the time.
