    cable control

    I have seen guys attatch to plastic dash under neath or bottom
    But the way i had it was on a mounting tower(if you will)that screw to the floor.Very sturdy,which in my opinion,is a must for the cable joystick.
    Sorry no pic avail,but it was an actual western part #
    See dealer or web

    Right, on the hump is where I've seen them. The T-handle is what I'm referring to. I've heard you should try to keep the bends to a minimum as you route the cables to keep it easy to operate the control.

    Is your 86 the turbo?

    The 86 is a 22re non turbo . When you say the hump , its automatic too.

    RO.........Western has 2 different mounts for the cable control.
    One is a small bracket so you can attach controller to dash.
    The other is a tower that mounts to the floor and the controller
    mounts on top of that.

    I have the small bracket type which I mounted with industrial double sided tape to the dash. It ripped of when I was plowing (not looking at it and slamin it in to the bracket) so I sewed it to a 3in square by 1/8in thick rubber pad and remounted it with the double sided tape (gave it a little more grab surface and some flex) so far that has held up. I'm not recomending this just telling you what I did. My truck is new so I didn't want to drill holes in the dash untill I find a spot I'm sure that I am going to like.
