    ok well i answered my own question lol after reading a post from like 12 months ago on here it said it would drain my battery so I ripped everything out and started thinging so I ran my power cables (cables designed for AMP's) inside the jeep and everything now runs great. I have my inverter next to my seat so I can use the invert's switch as and when I need . right now my laptop is mounted on my center util unit between my gear stick and hand break. Job done for now

    I will post something in the show off your project section tomorrow when I can take some photo's.

    thanks for your help ppl.

    For future reference, wire gauges get smaller the larger in diameter they are.

    Here is Wire Gauges 30, 22, 18, 16 Next to a Quarter.
