    Not sure if this is the right spot to post this but if so sorry rookie mistake...

    Updated the fleet for the snow season and the new (to us) rig is a manual... we are putting a BOSS 8 Ft Straight blade on her and I'd like to mount the controller to the shifter ... anybody have this done already and have any tips on how to mount it, or is there an aftermarket company who makes a mount already?

    Thanks in advance

    Might have to make your own. Angle iron and some U bolts and your done. Or thin plate, bend it at a 90 and clamp it.
    I always had my controllers mounted to the dash or clamped to the seat. I personally never liked the idea of mounting to the shifter. Just my .01

    I thought about mounting to dash but just thought it'd be easier on the shifter

    To each his own, again I never personally liked it.
    Both my trucks it would have hit the dash, cup holder, or seat.

    I took the handle off mine and velcroed it to the top of the left arm rest. You might try removing the handle before you look for a mount. With the handle off its only about 3 inches square.
