I installed a Rock hard Full width bumper with a warn m8000 on a 12 jkur. I used a dremel tool to cut a 30 and 60 angle off of the pump braket. Winch fit perfect!
Also have the sPOD, its currently lighting a rigid 10" on the bumper and two 130W KC windshiled lights.
I try not to move or change many items due to warranty/dealer fights. Boy can I tell you some of the bs in the past. Another thread and another day at moab.

Poor Engineering! Avoid this re-lo bracket!
The Wolfman can point U to a FAR BETTER re-lo bracket! SO you can re-lo the canister and still get your sPOD

|basecamper||fireron it appears to me that they will definately conflict! Even if you could mount the sPOD and the Vac Pump there you would have trouble routing your wires because they come up through the side closest to the windshield. When I installed mine a couple of weeks ago it is already very tight in that area.|

Thanks to the Wolfman, I got the sPOD. Best Mod, I've done so far! If I can install it, any one can!
The relo bracket U are speaking of, is to B avoided! The Wolfman can point you to a better, easier bracket Just moves the canister and few INCHES

BTW, the sPOD is one of the best mods I've done to my Jeep...but it's really only worth it if you're gonna add multiple aux electrical items.
Worth every penny, in that case.

Thanks very much for the pic. Yes, it is made to be in the elements and if you do not use the sPOD, it would probably make for a little drier environment, not that it really matters. Sometimes, overthinking something only makes more problems. Thanks again.

Okay, check this out.
If it looks like they conflict, I'd just stick with one of the other relocation kits for the vacuum pump. Leaving it under the Jeep isn't gonna hurt it. In fact, I didn't even know anyone MADE a relo kit to move it under the hood (which is also a wet environment, by the way).

|fireron||I found it at Northridge 4x4. I did a search for vacuum kit to find it. I tried to download the pic to the website but the file is too large. From your previous picture and the one on Northridge, it sure looks like I will have to use the EVO|

|fireron||The OR Fab kit places the pump up in the engine compartment, driver's side just in the general area where the sPOD mounts. I liked the idea of having the pump up and out of the way of the elements. From install pics I can't tell if the OR Fab and the sPOD would need the same space. EVO of course would work, I just thought up higher and drier might be better.|

Sure you're talking about the right things...
This is the vacuum pump on it's stock bracket underneath the front of your Jeep. In this photo I'm lying on my back under my bumper, shooting up.
This is the sPOD. I'm standing, shooting down.
Try as I might, I can't imagine those two things getting in the way of each other, unless you literally moved one of them about 3 feet from where it was supposed to be.

The vacuum pump is underneath your front end, and usually even relocated (at least, with the EVO kit I've got), it just moves back a little to allow a bumper/winch install. Does the ORU relo kit put the vacuum pump under the hood or something?
Cuz that's where the sPOD mounts, with brackets to the ECU unit under your hood.

sPOD and ORU vaccuum pump kit
Does anyone know if the ORU vacuum pump relocation kit will fit in conjunction with the sPOD unit? From the pictures I've seen, it appears as though when both are mounted in the standard locations, they will interfere with each other.
