Got the sPod in.









I need to get a nut for the other bolt on the negative terminal and move the connection to that, other than that, works great.

Suspend the frame on jack stands. You'll need to to raise and lower the axle to get the bolts in and out

You may also need a ratchet strap to grab the axle and pull in the direction you need.

thanks!

took a while.. i had to remove my top and have her run the cable up the roll bars and to the middle..

i was kinda scared of the worm drive clamps.. but its in good.. i shook the whole jeep trying to make it wiggle.. really happy with it..(150 bucks!) and to my surprise.. it does not block my rear view...

That overhead came out nice, I'm sure you'll like it.

I have my CB mounted there in my TJ for many years on my roll cage and it was perfect.

I was going to say pull the fuse, but I believe that disables all the airbags.

Hold your breath!!!! I spoke with Mitch last week, he is heading back east next week for what he hopes is the final test and approval from dot for the new seat covers that are side air bag compliant. He has a couple of new products coming out also but that will have to Waite till I see you again

It's nice to have friends :-)

Hey Rufus any word on your jeep yet.?

Great! I'll even send him finished pictures and post a review on YouTube if that's the case. I'll wait for the side airbag covers.
