Does anybody use an Spod with flight style toggles? I think I'd really like that look but I am not at the point where I need them yet. So just trying to future plan.

Did the otrattw covers fit on the sPOD switches without any mods to the them? I ordered the sPOD and love the otrattw covers.

Pop right on. Very nice look without being distractingly bright at night like the standard switches.

Do you just purchase the rocker? Or do you have to purchase the switch body to if you already have an SPOD?

Does anyone know if the otrattw covers/switches are compatible with the Rugged Ridge A-Pillar switch pod? I like the pod, but would much rather use the otrattw switches on it.

The opening on the Rugged Ridge A-pillar pods are 1 7/16 x 13/16. I don't know what the sizing is on the otrattw switches are. The spacing is pretty tight when you are using all 4 holes.

I'm getting ready to wire up my PIAA 520 ATP lights.

Has anyone used these? Did you use the stock switch or buy an aftermarket one? Where did you mount it (the stock one)?

Thanks

Those PlasmaGlows are very nice. Makes me think of replacing my $2 RadioShack switch I have on my A-Pillar located in the access hole to the left of the driver-side sun visor.

I got my switch on the inside of the pillar facing to the right, not towards me like I have seen

Finally bit the bullet and ordered my spod a few days ago. Splurged and went with the 2-light indicators and air gauge.

Will eventually replace the switches.

OTRATTW website says the rugged ridge pillar won't work with the contura V without modification but I don't know what all is required.

The PlasmaGlows only light up when turned on.

not sure if anyone is still following this thread but I have a question about getting power to the vandal switches on the pillar. I don't want to go straight to the battery because the LED's will stay lit all of the time. Can I splice them into the headlights so that they only come on when the dashboard lights come on?

I tapped M17 in the fuse box for the independent switch light. The light comes on when the dash lights are lit. Another option is this;

JK Wiring a Rocker Switch to Dash board Lights

These members tapped in to the dimmer circuit so the switch lights will dim the same as the dash lights.

My dad drilled a hole right below and to the left of his steering wheel on the dash to mount to rigid standard circular switch. Worked great and is really clean. I can post pics later jeep isn't here now
