The sPOD's are awesome as well, but I just couldn't justify spending nearly $500 to have a switch panel haha.. I've been around cars, running wires & switches for so long, there are easy alternatives that aren't so costly (although I do LOVE the sPOD)
Keep in mind the overhead console does slide back & forth on the rails, so there is a chance you could slide it back towards the rear of the vehicle enough to clear the sPod as well, although i'm not too sure if the mount would interfere. Probably best to avoid this setup with the sPod just to be safe.
I am just a super stickler for exposed wires and installs that don't look OEM or "clean." In the TJ's, it was easy, mount it right on top of the center console, worked great lol. The JK's have a bit more curves to the interior
Happy hunting.. Oh, and BTW, I LOVE the Uniden Bearcat CB, which is what i'm running. Puts out closer to 5W instead of the industry standard 4, and has several nice LED color schemes, PA, antenna/SWR calibration, weather channels, etc..
