    I really like the joystick, but have the handheld control. Ive been trying to find someone to trade but no luck. lol The boss joystick is huge! My question is, does anyone know, if i picked up a fisher joystick would it have the necessary wires to hardwire it into the boss harness? I think that'd be cool if i could use that little joystick on a dash mount for the Boss.

    I don't know about mixing controllers like that but what I did was mount the joystick on my center counsal. I took one of the peaces of hardware that came with the controller and mounted it. If you page through your owners manual they have a few different options for you. Otherwise you could go on ebay or to your dealer and ask to trade?. just giving you some other ideas to play aroud with.

    Thanks Ryan. The other truck with the joystick is mounted like yours. Also i talked to the dealer about trading but he said not on electrical parts. And all i seen on ebay is the V-joystick. I just wish the boss joystick was smaller and easier to mount.

    boss controller/ fisher

    You would not be able to adapt a fisher controller to the boss. The way the fisher controller activates the various solenoid valves is totally incompatible with the way the boss valve body does.

    controller swap

    Putting a fisher controller on a boss to me would be like wiring a rorary phone to your cell, just my opinion.
