Hi everyone just have a curiosity question here. I have seen people adding the fuse box power wire when doing the big 3, what is the benefit of doing so? Doing the big 3 you already have a larger current wire to the battery so why the fuse box wire? Is it just to keep all the other accessory's powered efficiently?
If this is somewhere else on the forum that i missed please throw me a link thanks.

Hello. This wire is added to provide the fusebox with more current. The stock wire is 6ga and is considered a choke point. Adding 4ga means that all the accessories booked to the fusebox will be able to pull the power they need more readily

Thanks a lot that's what I figured. I ended up putting 2 GA from alternator to the fuse panel then from there to battery. May change it and go directly to the battery then fuse panel though. Thanks again
