    $60 for a 4 switch box is fair price imo. to be honest ive found them at auctions and stuff a lot off work trucks for cheap though.try craigslist maybe? if not you could always make one for cheap if your handy, just a bit more work

    Might try Radio Shack, I've bought several different shape boxes both pastic and metal from them over the years. I also noticed a local electic supply company had several sitting on their counter the last time I was in there.

    and yes it is fused for the switches but i added a 25 amp inline fuse because i ran about 5ft of wiring to the switch box
