    I'm trying figure out where to mount it on my 2015 chassis XL F350 Ford
    I really don't want screw the bracket to the dash. Thinking of using industrial Velcro That's what I used on the hoist controller

    Any body have any photos of the location

    Go to http://www.proclipusa.com/ and enter your vehicle. They'll have a number of different clip-on dash mounts that you can screw the control holder to. They work great, and you don't have to drill any holes in your dash. In the summer, you take the whole thing off the dash and toss it in the glove box. I've got them in all of my trucks.

    They work great. In the truck I drive, I've got my controller on one, and two cell phones mounted on separate ones. They're a little pricey, but super convenient.

    I went simple with mine. Emblem tape. Or some other high quality double stick tape. If you prep and apply properly it’s not coming off without a lot of persuasion. I kept mine down low just because I don’t like a bunch of junk on my dash. I had on my controller on my 2011 in the same place for 3 years and it never came off. I had to pry it off when I traded it in. No holes ether and if you don’t like the spot pry it off and try another. Any parts store will have it in the paint section.

    Thanks for the pics
    Myself that's to low for me I like the controller be not far from the shifter and in the line of view

    You must hold yours when you plow I don't want to hold it

    Thanks on the Emblem tape
