Mount the BantamX and Touchscreen inside your van build to control all your interior lighting.
Method Vans also suggests using the BantamX/Touchscreen to control yoru exterior load lighting, which is useful while stationary. We suggest using a separate sPOD (see sPOD SourceLT and MINI6) to run the roof rack light bar, bumper lights and ARB compressor.
The BantamX will save hours of wiring and installation time! It is a small, 8-circuit (expandable) control system that provides a clean and safe way to power and control 12 accessories in your van build. Due to the small footprint of the BantamX, the placement options are endless! It’s the perfect over-all solution for all your aftermarket electrical accessories with options unmatched by anyone.
