Ok now we drill a hole in the firewall just above where the passenger put their feet 1" hole-saw. Install the grommet so the wires do not get cut and feed them through the firewall. Now the dirty part..it has to be dirty right? This all depends on how well you keep your engine clean...well lets say I should have cleaned it before hand!
Using a Phillips screwdriver disconnect the "Source" from the mounting plate.
We now install the mount for the source very simple using a 15mm socket and some muscle take off the bolts which are ground bolts. This is important to reconnect them last as your Jeep may not function right if you skip this step!
Reconnect the source and route the wires through the holes on the back side. This part had me worried as I am not keen on wiring! No big deal every thing is numbered so its easy to connect and if you have the LVCO connect the positive wire to that.
In the photo you will see I did not do that but later corrected it. You will need to also need to connect the pos and neg to the battery.
Now you are ready for the easy part, installing your accessories! The Spod comes with new connectors and shrink tube to make your install look professional. Once connected you simply loosen insert plug and tighten with a Phillips screwdriver pos & neg. No need for relays since they are pre-mounted on the source. I decided to just hook up the front locker and I am replacing the front lights. My rock-lights were cheap Walmart's so they failed after one year so I will need those too. Oh yeah and pretty much everything else you see missing off the switches I labeled!
Install Time:2hrs (I was documenting and could install another in 1 hr!)
Install Difficulty:Easy you will need a Philips Screw Driver,1" Hole-saw/Drill and a 15mm socket/Ratchet
Ending Impression:I can't believe its taken me this long to get the Spod! Installing all my future/current accessories will be a complete painless breeze!
I highly recommend the Spod for all your power Source needs and stop kidding your self, switches all over your dash powering who knows what SUCKS! YOu can find the Spod at www.4x4spod.com
or other online retailers.
