OK guys, I am a Dodge newbie. My Ford had plenty of spots to mount the controller. Not a lot of options in the Dodge with a hand shaker. Will be mounting mine in the next couple of days when we put the B&W gooseneck and my in-box wiring in.

So where are you guys with manuals putting your controller? I was considering on the panel in front of the stick.

My Prodigy is mounted to the knee panel just to the right of the steering column. Works fine there and is not in my way.

The original poster stated he had a 6-Speed Manual Transmission (read: handshaker). The bag is for garbage since Dodge saw fit to remove the trash bag hook from the dash in '06.

CB-
I mounted my Prodigy in the slot that is just below the radio. I drilled a small hole in the back, for the wires. The Prodigy is just slid in snug, on the passenger side of the slot. I can easily slide it out, and unplug to take it out of sight.

With it mounted there, it is still easily viewed, reached, adjusted(all controls work without interference), and I never hit it with my knee or boots. Plus, I can still put my can of Copenhagen next to it, or my Ipod.

Hope this helps you out.

Same spot that I put mine in but I made a bracket to hold it in there since pretty much everything I've ever put in that slot under the radio has wound up in the back seat at some point. :D

Thanks guys that gives me a couple of different options. Not sure thought that mine would fit below the radio. Will have to look at that again. I have a couple of older controllers. I guess that I am too cheap to buy a nice fancy new one when the old ones still work fine.

One thing that i have notice with the Prodigy. Being that it uses a accelerometer it helps to keep it inline with the truck, rather than a little sides wides or at a slant. It just seems to work a little better. It could be just my imagination playing with me though

Mine did not care what angle it was mounted at, I ran it in my Powerstroke for 3 years before moving it to my new CTD.

BTW, they have a new model out ( P3) that is even better if you are going to run electric over hydro.
