Dave's got you covered on the need aspect. As for where to find what you need it will depend on what you decided to go with. In my case I found a bunch of stuff on sale online from an audio company years ago and got my wire, fuses, battery terminals, etc. from then. I went with the ANL type fuse
(toward the bottom of the page) and a water resistant style holder like this
. I fused thise based on my max load now off the block + some to account for future needs. These things you could pick up online or any audio store like Quality Audio on County Line Rd etc.
I was really interested in going the circuit breaker route (I think Corbet went this route and did a write up on it here) because you don't have to worry about mucking with fuses and can shut off power to the entire aux block a little easier if needed. But, I already had the stuff mentioned above so for once in my life I decided to use what I already bought
For those interested, here was the write up I did on MUD: LINK
Just scroll to the bottom as the thread started off as a "how to remove the center console" question. No shots of the inline fuse at the battery though but the fuse sits right on the back side of the battery box, nice and close to the battery.
