    Yes.
    Push controle into knob and twist left or right .
    I have a video, but it's to long to post.

    The controle dose not stay stuck to the dial .
    Velcro just gives it grip to turn the dial.
    Push the control into the dial ,turn to select then
    Pull it off to use plow .
    Then push it back on the dial and select again .
    Never have to put controle down.

    Just an fyi. The 2500s and the 1500s offer a 6 speed and an 8 speed transmission. (Obviously not the same ones) but the 6's have the colum shifter while the 8 speeds have the dial.

    Come to complete stop, don't shift too fast on the dial should be fine. With dial even if your in gear and turn truck off it'll automatically go into park for you. Only second year with this truck but holding up just fine

    Give it a few years and it will be voice recognition. Drive - reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse,drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse,drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse,drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse,drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse,drive, reverse, drive, reverse until you lose your voice or mind.

    Pretty soon probably be able to sit back and control the truck with your cell phone.

    If Uber or Tesla take this idea I want a cut
