    Was searching for a place to put the controller and by chance, it sits in the cup holders in the center console. It is not perfect but does sit there.

    It worked! Thank you and thats actually pretty sweet that it fits, but someone did point out the obvious coffee issue.

    Well take off the handle end and then you will have an open cup holder for the coffee Thumbs Up ..For me I gotta do the old shift/hold the controller maneuver.. Actually thinkin of doing the removable door mount idea..

    Another idea

    So here's yet another idea. A guy made up a cell phone holder in three sizes that just slides in the credit card slot. It works great for the cell phones but I got an idea about using it for the controller. Just a piece of cable management velcro tie and it holds the controller solidly in the perfect position and the cup holder is once again freed up. :redbounce

    The phone holder device alone:

    With the controller attached:

    You guys don't hold the controller in your shifting hand while plowing? I can't imagine doing it any other way..

    Me neither. I shift and run the plow control with my right hand and hold the wheel with my left. I drink my coffee in between stops Thumbs Up:D

    I need to place the holder tab on the front of the dash so it sits there while not in use but I only plow with the controller in my hand. I may try attaching it to the shifter knob.

    I just made a holder out of a piece of nylon I had . It slides in that pocket snugly and when not needed just slide it out

    The up fitter switches I don't think they where in any package . They where just an option. I ordered my truck with them last march and don't remember if they got grouped in a package

    I do believe they are a 150.00 option when new(trying to remember my dads list for his 2015) I think its only possible to get when you get the upgraded alt.. I know you can order the kit to install it yourself if your truck doesnt have them

    The best deal on my 15 was to order the Snow Chief package. Upgrades to 18 in wheels, protection group, 180 amp alt, and the t.he aux switches. If I remember correctly it was about $600.
