    I wouldn't run one if it was given to me for free, but that's just me.

    Business ethics aside, I really don't like the looks of the spod switch panel. IMHO the switches themselves are not nearly as nice as what you can get from OTRATTW. Plus, isn't there a six switch max? Then what? You buy another spod? No thanks. Waaaayyy too much money for what it is.

    Integrity and honesty are cornerstones to life. I try to live by example for my kids and tell them to live by as well and choose to associate with those with similar ethics.
    I agree, total honesty is the only way to run a business, dealing with both employees and customers. My honesty has cost me money in a few instances over the years but I can still feel that I did the right thing. Definetly will not be using this product

Spod on the other hand is everywhere, in magazine ads, on sema builds, event sponsoring, etc. The guy has the product name out there, he did a good job in cornering that faucet of the jk market. Now I'm no fan of what he did and I won't buy the product myself. With that said, it is probably safe to say that we won't see anything new hit the market and overthrow the spod, it just seems too late in the game. Maybe in the next model of the wrangler a manufacture Will step up and have better business ethics.
    I think TheDuff just about nailed it.

    And, I think this is a big reason why people still choose to turn a blind eye to what this guy got caught doing and buy his product in spite of what they know. In the end, their fears or desire to for an easy solution trumps values like honesty and integrity.

    You know I'm with you on this one. After getting busted, he tried to pay me to be a sponsor but without an admission for what he had done and an apology for it, there is no way I would take his money.

    I won't run one...well, basically because Sharkey does all my wiring.

    Kidding aside. As I've said before...two types of class, first and none.

    I figured it was in there, just didn't feel like reading 2,000 posts. 😉
