OTRATTW switches

Has anyone wired these up without using a SPOD? Dont really want to spend $430 for 2 switches.

You can use them like any other switch. If you're not using a relay then make sure the switch amp rating exceeds the load you put on it.

I considered this as well because I want my switches on the A pillar. However, one of the nice things about the sPod is that it is all pre-wired/loomed with good connections. Nice, neat and clean all the way to the switch.

Overall I am sure you will save some money, but how much and is it worth it. Each switch has 3-5 wires (depending on if it is a one light or two light). That is a lot of wires to have to deal with.

I decided to go with the sPod with the switches and just move the switches to my A pillar.

SPOD is a great product but i am not going to spend that for my two switches. I know i will never need as many as it handles so its just not an option for me. I just cant find any diagram showing how to wire without a SPOD.

Hop on The12volt.com and you'll find all the wiring diagrams you need. I started wiring with the technical information I needed to get everything wired in and working correctly but it quickly turned into a rats nest. I just recently ripped all of my auxiliary circuits out, made full harnesses the plug ends and loom and reinstalled everything. If you look under my hood or under my dash you wouldn't be able to find what I added vs what is factory. Plus I know where all my relays and fuses are which is great for troubleshooting.

Take your time and you can put together something just as clean as the S-pod but without the cost. Let me know if you have any other specific questions about wiring and I'll help our the best I can.
