    Used to always hold or let sit on the seat,my meyer controller. Decided I need to mount my SD controller but didn`t want to drill any holes in the truck. No good place on the dash anyhow. Didn`t want pedestal on floor. So this is what I came up with.Materials used:scrap trex decking,new not needed Harley filter . Fits tightly into cup holder,swivels for comfort,easily removes when not needed.

    This thread got me thinking. So I cobbled a mount, holder from some spare ram mount hardware I had laying around.

    I hang my fishstik over the steering column when not using it. When traveling between lots it goes over my right thigh or top end down in the arm rest cup holder.

    I didn`t mount it for transport purposes, I mounted it there for comfort and ease of use. It`s right at ams reach while resting arm on console. To the OP with the sensitive arm, I usually have on a winter coat,or at least a sweat shirt on while plowing. Very comfortable on the arm. Crazy,can you adjust that out and down for arm reach?

    Yes. Both arms are adjustable. You can move it in,out, back, forward, side to side, up or down. The ram mounts are very adjustable. I just hooked two of them together with a rod connector. The mount is hooked to the cup holder with a ram c-clamp and the controller is held in place with another ram clamp. You can also adjust the controller position by moving it in the upper clamp. I just loosen the upper clamp and the controller comes right out. Or you can loosen the lower clamp and the whole assembly can be removed.

    I have my Fishstick holder velcroed to the dash just above the shifter. I steer with the left, select gear with right and push button with right. No holes in my dash and that new hard velcro from 3m is awesome! If you can't picture it I can post a pic later:drinkup:
