    I know we have had several threads over the years where we post pictures of the inside of our trucks, Lets get that going again. I would like some help deciding if the is a unique way to mount my hand held controler. Thanks guys.

    Don't mean to hijack the thread, but any 03+ Dodge ram hand held mount pics would be helpful, I'm trying to figure out where to mount mine too.

    I already posted pics in the BOSS thread. Look for "ST2 mount in chevy". I'm very proud of it, so if I have more chances to show it off, well then so be it!:rolleyes:

    That is the exact way I mounted my joystick in my Dodge.

    I don't want to rock the boat but why are people mounting hand helds, does that not defeat the purpose. I have tried the hand held and do not like it.

    I have two westerns, one joystick and one handheld, the handheld i dont even mount I just leave it on the center seat or center consoul, the joystick I have mounted by my left knee and I hate it there but oh well.

    We have to hand helds and both just lay on the seat, if the plows not on the truck, we put the controllers in the glove box

    stcroixjoe, do you leave it there while you are plowing or is that just for storage??

    Not a big fan of handhelds,I have only had toggles or joysticks mounted.But the beauty of the Smarttouch 2 is you can remove the handle and mount it.First pic is my truck,second is my work truck with spreader box mounted also.

    Right Side?

    None of you guys mount on the left side to give you the option to shift and raise/lower at the same time? I have mostly seen that set up before, Shift Into reverse with the right hand, Lift the plow with the left hand...I guess thats just my preference then...

    I was trying to figure out how to mount my joystick on the door but came up with no ideas. I was thinking the same thing with doing 2 things at once to save a bit of time.

    MY drump truck is on the left, but the other two on on the right. If you try to run the plow and shif at the same time, you end up working the tranny to fast, Ie. not stoping completly before shifting.

    What about holding onto the steering wheel? The nice thing about the boss handheld is all you have to do double click the up button and it will go all the way to the top so you dont have to onto the button. But this year im trying the joystick so we shall see.
