    I installed my new sPOD yesterday! I am very excited but definitely a tad bit nervous haha.
    I forgot to ask for a harness for the ARB air compressor. I found out you really do not need one and its a waste of $25 if you ask me. Just pull these two wires out of the harness plug and connect them to the sPOD



    A rightfully earned upgrade

    Not sure which compressor you have or if the wiring might be different than on my ARB CKMTA12, but I just had to run the one purple wire from the compressor to one of the sPOD positive posts. Didn't require anything run to the negative post for the sPOD switch.....assuming you don't have lockers, that's all you need to do.

    Now my sPOD is being recalled. Darn. I blew my fuse today actually and got this email an hour later. Click image for larger version.

    Man, that is almost unbelievable.

    I've always wanted an sPOD, but haven't enough extra cash to dole out. I've learned a lot from this thread and your experience though, thanks for posting the details.

    As an aside, there are standards for protecting electronics from water/fluids and so forth. It kind of surprises me that aftermarket companies don't use those standards to their benefit (e.g "IP66"). Not having seen the guts of an sPOD before, it also gave me pause to see the surface mount technology (SMT) on the upper right hand side of the board exposed. One little drop of anything, or for that matter a very small piece of wire from falling across the micro sized circuit could really wreak havoc. That section of the board could be protected in so many ways to prevent issues.

    Thank goodness you saved your Jeep from burning to the ground.
