Default Auxiliary fusebox

G'day guys, quick question:

I'm wanting to make an auxiliary fusebox inside the cab of my 2 door so that I only need to run wires into the cabin instead of making the engine bay crazy complicated.

I have an idea on how to do it, I'm just not 100% on the relay/switch part. So I bought a 6AWG wire (from memory - it's thick!), I will fuse that at the battery (imagine like an amplifier fuse), then I will run the cable through the firewall or the hole next to the hood into the cabin. The cable will go to a junction box maybe which will wire the relay. Then that goes to [url=https://www.jaycar.com.au/10-way-blade-fuse-block-with-led-indicators/p/SZ2008] the fusebox [url], and then the accessories plug into that.

How big of a relay will I need? Is 12v 100amp too much? I THINK all I'll add is a dashcam, the CB radio, LED bars, and I think some other outside lights.

Any suggestions for how to wire it differently?

I have one of those. But I also have a large gauge wire running to a fuse box in the back for other things, since the sPod is in the engine bay & I wanted a separate power distribution for things at the back.

I have a large fuse for the power, but I run it unswitched by a relay. It's permanent power, with the chance of running the battery flat, though...

It would be but it's super expensive! Not sure what I'll do at this stage
