  1. Dakota Digital control box mounting

    I have a question on placement for you guys that have mounted a control box for the DD gauge assembly. I have my dash totally removed and have removed all old remnants of the original ECM and instrument panel. I had the DD dash temporarily installed and mounted on a piece of plywood. I'm now...
