Default Where To Mount Battery Relay @ Fuse Blocks?

Hello all got a new 2011 Ram 2500 6.2L Turbo Diesel a few weeks ago for my company truck.

Have several black boxes (radio equipment used for cellular testing) and and a 500 watt inverter that needs to be installed, and maybe a sub-woofer if I can swing it.

Anyway need both direct battery and accessory battery. I have a 100-amp relay to accommodate th accessory battery circuit, and a couple of Blue Sea ATO Fuse distribution blocks to distribute power.

Anyway looking under the hood, things are real tight especially on the firewall. Cannot see any real good surfaces to mount the relay and blocks.

Anyone know of a few good hidden surfaces to use that are accessible to a drill?

If you remove the dash board their is a ton of spare space.

Remove the dash board? I was hoping for a little more simpler than that.
