Negative on the that kind of cash flow. I was originally thinking under the cowl by the wiper blades but wasn't sure if that was a good idea.If you have the money for it, the sPod is great. I just installed mine last night. Before that I had my relays installed behind the battery.
I'm sure it's really nice, it sure looks like it is. But I could honestly get the same thing done for less than $75. It'll take a little time, but picking up a factory relay/fuse box from a junkyard vehicle would be my starting point. I think 1/2 the fun is making you're own stuff.when you figure all the switches, relays, wire, connectors, fuses and such, then do the work involved to harness all that, the s-POD is not a bad deal at all. Also, John and Cindy over at s-POD have the greatest of customer service. I haven't seen my written warranty yet, and I didn't ask either, but I know that I can call them if I have a problem and they will help. I met them at the JK Summerfest last weekend, and they are the best of stand-up people.
Where did you get your fuse block?...the plate was $20 i belive. got all my stuff for about $90.

it ran for a year before i traded it in with out any problems. worked well enough that as soon as my garage doesn't feel like the surface of the sun i'll be doing it again on the new jeep.
looks like thisWhere did you get your fuse block?...
I was thinking the same way...I already mounted 6 switches in the same location as you and I think I am fully capable of wiring one up...I do like the SPOD though...They have a very clean set-up and I am sure it is worth every penny if you don't want to bother with it...I like tinkering as much as I can so i don't really mind...:beer:
