DP Tuner Knob placement

I'm in the process of installing a 6 pos DP Tuner in my truck. I can't figure out where I should put the dial. I would like it someplace out of the way, but so I can still get to it. Any suggestions?

I haven't installed one before but if you wanted it hidden you could put it inside the ash tray pull-out.

One of the options I am concidering when I get a chip:

My nob is under the dash right below the stearing wheel and plastic cover that pops off. There is a steel bottom edge at the bottom of that cover that already has holes in it. This keeps the dash clean and unsuspecting folks from seeing the knob and knowing your truck is chipped. Also keeps someone from borrowing the truck and being tempted to play.

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.

No, there's about 2 feet, but on the older chips I bet you could lengthen the wires and go as far as you want... The ribbon cable DP use's should be avalable at Radio Shack, but I dont know how that new chip would react to it...

I've also heard of some popping the cover off of the bottom of the steering column and mounting it under there. Its out of the way, and you just reach down to turn it when need be.

If you have it set up with a no start setting or just want it hidden and relatively easy to access i would mount it under the fuse panel cover pointing down, if that makes sense. If you weren't looking for it you wouldn't see it

I have mine on the Removable cover below the stearing wheel it is really accessable. however if u have a no start or valet mode i would hide it.
