Here is the install video

You'll see john in the video, I misunderstood the instructions when I was installing the unit and reached him on SATURDAY. I couldnt believe it. I've never reached anyone for any product on a weekend for help.

That's exactly it. The kit includes a positive and a negative cable to attach to the battery.

The Low Voltage Cutoff is an option (which is a no brainer to me) and from what I understand is now integrated into the sPod Source (the fuse/relay box) if so ordered.

Vin If you don't want to spend more money on your sPod, DO NOT check out OTRATTW.

Osage Orange I like the idea of the switches being up and out of the way in a centralized location. Very clean and professional looking from what Ive seen.

willee51 I have the sPOD as well AT this point I have one switch left

A mechanic at the Stealership, said it was the best addition yet, to my Jeep. He said taping into the "wiring harness" on new vehicles is the WORST thing you can do. He said it usually screws-up the micro-processors, which in turn communicate with the PCM (or whatever you call the master controller)

He said "I probably saved myself some REAL head-aches" buy using the sPOD

Vin Jeep $36K, Half Doors $2K, $Tires $1500, Wheels $1200, lift $800...$435 was a drop in the bucket.

Ecko510 the moment when you read the whole post and are really ready to buy the spod then you realize its 435 bucks....

My issue with the lights and other components is that that switches dont match. Also, with a Manual transmission, getting the wires through the washer fluid hole is something you only want to do once. That was an ordeal. The auto's firewall has a larger hole.

PieFace I think it comes down to weather you have enough things to attach to it, and how concerned you are that your dealer may give you a hard time about the warranty.

Overall tho, I havent seen a set up that looks as good. The rugged ridge pillar switches looked cheap to me, and installing one switch at a time with other single switches I thought might not look uniform.

the Kolector That's the first time I have actually seen the Spod. Very nice setup, I just can't justify the cost. Would love to have one though.

S-POD Unboxing and Installation

Hey all,

I posted a while back trying to figure out what to do about getting the Viair compressor installation completed without using their switch. I went with the S-POD and Im glad I did. The only downside is that i have 5 switches left, so just when I thought I was done spending money on this obsession, now I have to buy 5 more things to connect to it!

Why do it with only one switch? First, Im sure there will be more, and second, I didnt want to do anything to the electrical system of my truck. Second, I'm freightend by others stories in this forum about how dealerships and chrysler will go out of their way to void a warranty, and with the electrical system they can see anything attached to it and say that it was the problem. Best to just eliminate that nightmare. (especially since i bought the extended warranty).

The system is supposed to look OEM when its installed, and from what I can see, it lives up to that claim, The parts are all metal, and of the pieces that go in the cabin, they are powdercoated with a textured black that matches the headliner where it sits, perfectly.
