The spod seems to have a few more features now, but I LOVE how easy the install and wiring was for my trail rocker. I'd do the trail rocker again.

Well with a dual battery setup or a manual the painless system really does not work. So I have a SPOD since I have both.

Made my own but it's patterned off the S-Tech. Uses the same relay box and I did buy their 6 rocker bare housing to mount to my cage.

What's everyones opinion on which they like better and why?
I'm getting ready to the trail rocker setup right now on my JK.. I just ordered some various switch covers last night for the project.

It seemed like you got "more" with the Painless system and I like that it mounts near the battery.

I haven't held an Spod, so it's unfair to review it. I do know Painless has been doing auto wiring for a LONG time. I also like that the wires are individually labeled.

I have the low mount (down in front of the shifter) and the high-mount kits for the story.. I'm only going to actually use the low mount so if you're looking a the high mount (up near rearview mirror) then let me know.

Here's a write up I found on the Trail Rocker..

I can see where a dual batter would get in the way, although I wasn't sure it would delete the space needed for the TR box.

Why would a manual negate the Painless system? I see no mention of automatic only on their site..

Just because of the switch location, not as much room up there as the automatic.

I have a trail rocker. If I did it over again, I'd go switch-pros. It's smaller, more modern and more features. The trail rocker works great, it's just big and I had to upgrade to switches to backlit ones and custom rocker covers to say what they operate.
