Gauge installation

I am installing some guages in my 02. Where are you guys getting keyed on power from? I dont want to tap the wrong one.

I used the radio fuse. You can get those taps that connect to the fuse itself. I've always liked those. Guages don't tend to draw much power, so you should be good with pretty much any keyed power source, and not over tax whatever system you choose.

I found this link on DTR it's really helpful when installing your gauge lights.
