One on the left is for the windsheild lights.
One next to it is for the lights on the bumper.
The one on the far right with the red buttons is my in cab winch controller.

idk what kind of fog lights you got, but I just put in KC fogs. I also have a set of KC's on my windshield. I have the switches mounted in the same locations as above, except I just drilled a hole in the Factory Blanks, put the switch in and them used the plastic thingy (I'm tired, terminology has left me for the day) to hold it in place. Sorry no pics, if you want one i'll get it for ya tomorrow.

Basic Auto Zone switches. Drilled them into the blank spots.

Not mine but this is a cool solution for those wanting to run more factory looking switches on older TJs... There's a write-up somewhere about this.

I used the ashtray blank panel for the ARB switches, and I just drilled a hole through one of the factory switch blanks for a fog light switch.

Hardcoretj, did the daystar switchs fit the stock holes in the panel or did you have to make changes to get them to mount?

I was thinking of doing the same thing. Any idea where the write up is?

i like it, but with 6 switches, even if you ran one common ground and 6 line, 6 load wires, thats 13 wires (with a whole lotta ground spices) where do you go from there with it all?

Add OTRATTW's double lighted switches and you are now up to 25 wires!

Nope, not like that at all. The sPOD has the switch module that you see in the photograph. You also get what they call the source. The source is a power distribution module that is pre fused, relayed and terminal ended for all your auxiliary options. A pre attached braided line is run from the switch unit to the source. All wires for the switches are labeled and the terminals are designed for "push and play" attachment. Since the source is a terminal board, there is only one positive and one ground cable that is run from the source. The positive and grounds from your auxiliary equipment is run through a specially designed route into the source. Attached two wires and it's done. Cleanest install ~ ever.

Is it worth the $450? If you are going to run auxiliary lights, lockers, OAB, or what ever - yes. Otherwise, you'll end up with what Kevbz describes above.

Here is the website.
4x4 SPOD Since 2005 - The ORIGINAL JEEP Over The Windshield Switch Console - Jeep Power Distribution System

Take a look at their video:


Here is picture of the source, inside my hood (over the battery). Everything is tucked up nice and neat within the aluminum housing ~ which is by the way designed to bolt directly onto the existing bolts on the Jeep.
