    Is there anyone out there who can give me a tip on how to mount the rocker box switch controller for a RTII straight blade Boss plow? I need to figure something out because it is a huge pain! I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 and I'll attach a pic of my controller. Thank you in advance!

    I have a fisher hand held controller but it came with a mounting bracket I used scotch heavy duty fasteners because I didn't want to drill screws through my dash board its almost like velcro but a lot stronger and the back side of it is stickier than regular Velcro works good ill try to post a pic maybe it will help you

    If you can do some light welding or know a fab welder some tubing off old tread mills will set you up right. This is my old F-250, ok for some reason I can repost the photo. If you like check out post 1312 in the what did you do today thread.

    Say if you have a arm rest type console with cup holder you could make one like mine to hold your controller

    controller mount

    I have the same controller for my RT2 Boss V=plow. On my 1995 F-250 I used a flooor flange for the base (screwed into the trans hump) and pipe to get the height I wanted, Then put on another 4" floor plate. To that I cut a piece of flat steel, bent the sides up, drill the holes to attach the switch box. Bolt the mount to the pipe base then attach the switch box to the bracket. I'll see if I can get a photo

    Mines removable as well and its only a flat piece of aluminum that sits in the seam in the center console. Never moves on me when in use too I love it.

    One more idea to toss into the ring, I build this console with integrated controls for the blizzard 810 and rear drag plow. Just another idea to toss into the pot so you can make some soup Thumbs Up
