Header bar dash switch pod?

Is there anyone making a header bar dash switch pod?

I know SPOD makes a complete unit...but would like to explore other options. Just looking for the mount / pod.

Enjoying life!

The sPOD solution is the cleanest/best solution I could find, and John is an A+ dude.

Having said that, you can always make your own is you just need the actuators. The source is the key item in the sPOD solution. The actuators and mounting systems for the actuators are readily available parts. HTH

This doc is about everything you would need to know about the actuators. Why don't you shoot John an email and see if he will sell you the housing and actuators?

You can order just the switch bezel from John at SPod... I ordered one back about a month ago... not disappointed. John is a A+ guy to deal with.

You can also check out 12voltguy. He's a vendor on here as well. Not saying the sPod is a bad option, personally I've seen John talk on the forum here and I can say that he seems to be EXTREMELY helpful. I know for a fact that you could ask John and 12voltguy both about their products (and the competitors) and they would both give you tons of help.

Just trying to help you do your research before going out and buying your product! good luck!

Thanks,

Still need to wire & mount it. Not as clean as the one above or SPODs, but it should work well for me.

What about a panel that will mount to a cage? I dont have any trim on the windshield frame and I wanted to mount a switch panel on the roll bar.

We are still toying with a universal version that would clamp to the roll-bar with padding. We have a few out installed on "mule" rigs at this time for testing. Two of them are members of JKO one of which is Kenny at River Raider.

Thanks Bruce
