I have a kit that will be going in soon.  It is a Kwik Wire.  It has colored
and labeled wires, 3 pigtail connectors on the harness, an on /off toggle
switch on the block, and GXL grade wire(was told this is step above modern
factory regs- same grade as RF & EZ wire).  Instruction are straight
forward, and there is a wiring hotline to boot.  They make 12,18 and 21 fuse
blocks. I got my 18 fuse kit for $255.  Lot cheaper than RF.  I wasn't as
impressed with the EZ wire a friend used.  The black wires may look cleaner,
but I can only imagine trying to trace a wire on the the side of the road
one night.   Just my 2"
