A 2-in-1 fuse?? Really Ford? You can't find enough room in a f250 to have separate fuses for each circuit? You really need to change fuses every 2 years!?!? I have to stock 7 different types of fuses for just the Fords in our fleet... you suck.

Rant over.

In case anyone owns/works on a new truck, Ford now uses micro2 and micro3(the abomination seen above) fuses.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Clever. But stupid. If only half of it fails, you still have to replace the whole thing. I prefer to only replace the fuse for the circuit that needs it.

Stick a foil wrapper in the socket and never worry again.

My temporary solution consists of:
3 metripack 280 male terminals.
3 female quick connects.
8" of wire.
2 7.5 amp atc fuses.

That's just so we can drive it out of the building.

Good enough
Exploding firearm rounds really aren't that dangerous anyway. It's been tested and proven. Sure, they'd put an eye out, but they won't send the projectile out through anything. I've tossed live 9mm rounds in a bonfire because a guy didn't believe me. Stood 6ft away with my back turned to the fire, and wasn't injured at all. A piece of brass hit my pantleg and I barely felt it.

Not in my book.
You can kinda pick favorites though. If your radio fuse blows you can flip it around and run without tail lights so you can keep jammin' to tunes.

If you can find them I doubt the double fuses would cost much more than a regular one, material cost wouldn't be drastically different.
