Thanks Jason,
Sorry we couldn't find each other at Gulches last weekend. We are looking at planning a camping run one weekend probably late March/early April. We can wheel without having to wait in lines.

What about when it rains?

Is there a plate for that hole?

x2?

EDIT: Had a thought last night, I am guessing the hole is there to clear the loop, allow space for you to attach ,and space for you when putting on a top and what not so, why now make a little lexan, metal, fiberglass, whatever plate (I'll probably go with metal, I have never tried to melt and mold lexan though I'm sure it could be done, and fiberglass is too much effort, IMO (would have to have some shape to it rather than simply flat in order to clear the loop, it looks like)) to put on there with some velcro tape (or even to be fancier, use the sPODS screws!)? It would be fully removable when you need it to be and when needed could press against the weather stripping to provide a seal (and to prevent air from going under it and ripping it off). The sPOD doesn't need the opening for cooling or anything like that right? Since it runs relays I'm sure the switches would not being seeing enough current to heat up at all? I am going to try to rig something up whenever my sPOD gets here and I get around to mounting it! (I couldn't pass up their Jeep Beach deal!!!!)

I emailed with John I think it was at SPOD. I asked him about the hole and if it would cause problems with rain as I'm in south Florida where it can rain at any minute. He said everything inside there is military grade switchs and connects and it's all water proof so it won't hurt anything if it get wet.


here is exactly what he told me. Seems very friendly and helpful.

Quote:
Hi Rich, Thanks for the interest in the sPOD system! Good question and this question is frequently asked. The reason for the opening is for clearance for the footman loop and the latching system on the 2009 - 2011 freedom to latching system. Weather and the elements was a very important factor in the engineering / design of the sPOD system! We have carefully selected components that are used in our systems with all the concerns of the elements. Our switches we use (Carling Technologies Contura) are rated at 50m under water at 50,000 cycles with an IP67 - IP68 rating! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_Code All of our connectors are of military / automotive quality. Our original test consisted of submersing our Source unit in a vat of salt water for 72 hours, removing from the salty water and then running a 396 chevy starter motor on is for another 48 hours! We spiked an amazing 185amps! That was 5 1/2 years ago with over a 1,000 system sold world wide without a single problem caused by the elements! As a matter of fact, I am running the test unit to this day in my 2003 TJ Rubicon! It looks like crap...but still works! We have many customers in your area if you need references. We pride ourselves in the fact that we manufacture and build all of our parts here in the US by the same folks who enjoy this hobby we call "Jeepin". All of our components are 100% inspected, part numbered ID stamped and date stamped for traceability. This link below is pretty cool take on a post by a customer that I don't even know: https://jkowners.com/forum/showthread...highlight=spod One of the interesting features of 4x4 modifications is the high-level of execution of electrical modifications. While everyone should strive for a top-notch design and installation, it's scarily common to see hacked-up electrical jobs (search the forums), mostly on trailered rigs but sometimes on daily drivers as well. For folks that depend on their rigs reliability in remote locations, that is not an option! Keep in touch, even if you never purchase a system form us...we can just talk wheeling and trails!
