S Pod and RC 6" Off Road halogen lights

I want to buy the RC 6" halogen off road lights for my '14 Wrangler and connect it to a just ordered S Pod. Everything I read about the S Pod states you just run the + and - wires from the accessory to the appropriate + and - S Pod posts. However, I contacted RC today about how to wire their 6" halos to an S Pod and they said I need to follow the wiring diagram for that light set despite the S Pod that will be in my Jeep. That diagram shows combining the negative wires from each light and ground them in the Jeep engine compartment and NOT the negative contact on the S Pod. Is this true? Kind of defeats the purpose of the S Pod but I want to know what you guys think. Will wiring the negative wires to the S Pod cause the RC lights to fail? Thanks in advance.

I don't have any experience with those lights, but I can't imagine it would matter either way.

You could put all the grounds together and connect them to engine ground instead of the SPod ground, but still land the positive wires from the lights on the SPod positive terminal (for the particular switch circuit you want to use) and the SPod would still switch the lights on and off.

I can't imagine the lights would fail if they were grounded through the SPod though. How many lights are you using, and how many watts each are they (I assume 100W, correct)? Will they all be on the same SPod circuit/switch?
