How is your 6-pos chip switch mounted?

I want some ideas, i have mine mounted below the dash, but i was thinking about the pocket to the right of the wheel? Anyone got any good thoughts

don't mount it outside the cab that is a terrible idea. put it in the cab i took a piece of alum. diamond plate and drilled a hole in it then bent it in a 90 and mounted it right next to my brake controller

haha so much for my idea of mounting it on the mirror I had thought about pulling the cig lighter out of the ashtray and mounting it there. I don't like how i have it now

all the way at the bottom of the panel below the steering column, it was easy to do at the time. Now i'm putting alot of work into making the truck look good again, its sat alot the last 2 years. Where i have it is not 'clean' enough IMO
