sPOD install in a 2014 w/ 3 pc freedom top

Has anyone installed a sPOD in a 2014 JK with the factory hard top? Clearance between the switches and the freedom top center panel lever looks like it would be awful tight based on the space between the rear view mirror and hard top lever. If anyone has first hand experience it would appreciate your experience. Thanks

Dave has put this in his new Rubicon. Check out the thread scorpion II build in the build section of the forum. He did mention using a lot of expletives during the install.

From my personal experience, there is just enough clearance to allow the latch to still operate.

You are correct OP, the clearance is TIGHT. The most important thing is to tuck the spod harness into the spod correctly. Apply pressure towards windshield pillar which screwing in the pod.

Got the sPOD and installed like a breeze. A real fish tape did the trick and I was through the fire wall in less than 5 minutes by myself. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the grommet. I have a manual so I used the passage with the wiper fluid line already in it. Anybody find a suitable replacement to make it seal better? SPOD in windshield mount Rigids connected, warn cti 9.5 drop shipping as of yesterday :-)
