    ok both of you guys are just about spot on on where mine is mounted, its more like snowman's because its on the front side of the shifter, my only problem is HOW its mounted i just need to figure out how to get it on there so it wont spin or slide down, i can weld i just wont to have it welded incase i want to move it or anything.

    get a clamp fitting to go on the shifter where you want it, then use a u bolt that has long threads and tighten the clamp to the shifter and then on the remaining threads of the u bolt make a mount for the joy stick to go on. if i knew how on a comp id draw a rough idea up for you.

    i spent about $2.50 at my local hardware to get that

    all it was was a simple T bracket bent, and a single u-bolt going through it.

    Mine is mounted on the side cause there is not enough room in the front, it would hit the dash board. But i also run the controller with my thumb, so it is in the perfect place. If i had it mounted like snowman2025, i would be lost trying to control it, lol.
