will the s-pod work with locker mod

I am looking into buying a s-pod and wondered if I can do the locker mod at the same time? Is there a sway bar mod also, what about traction control? If I can do all of this in the s-pod what are all of you doing with the factory switches??

You could probably add any NEW mod to the s-pod. But you probably can not relocate any OEM controls to the s-pod.

Yes you can do the locker mod with the spod, kinda overkill since I believe the spod has relays built into it? Switching a relay with a relay is electrical overkill, but conveinent switching.

The factory switches are pretty much useless if you always use another switch. i dont think there is a "sway bar mod"

I realize I don't need relays to do the locker mod but I am trying to keep my dash clean. I am going to use the s-pod to run some lights front and rear and also switch my business band two way on and off. and I am sure I will find a few other things also, I just don't want to have toggle switches on the dash to run my lockers and still have the factory switches in the dash and then have wasted switch space up above in the spod. suggestions are welcome.

do you have a pic of your spod switches and also the factory location after you put the x/sahara trim bezel.

You do not have to switch a relay with another relay. All you have to do is a little wire manipulation.

I currently don't have my jeep to give you a photo of the trim bezel.

No problem, for reference the top one is the sPOD with air gauge and the dash is the 12voltguy.

when I talked with John @ spod he strongly suggested put a seperate switch under the hood so the lockers couldn't be engaged at highway speeds or any other unsafe time, do you have yours this way or not. I really wasn't wanting to do it that way.
