Today i was trying to find a place to mount my new Edge Insight CTS. I've only had it a couple days and hated the windshield mount. It is big and ugly. Plus just sitting there says "STEAL ME". And i didn't want to remove it every time i got out of my truck.
After some time contemplating what to do, i decided i was going to mount it over the top of the vent to the right of the steering wheel. Being that i never use those vents ever anyways. After pulling dash and removing vent i realized it wasn't going to work very well, as the vent opening in the dash is just a tad to big, leaving just a little bit of the Velcro to stick to. I could see it falling off easily. That's when it hit me, Mount it behind the dash in the vent opening.
Went to the store in my Jeep to get the essentials
After pulling the dash, I separated the grill assembly from the dash by removing 3 screws.
i did have to dremel down one of the screw holes and a little tab.
after that, i cleaned it up and installed Velcro and mounted the CTS
I then used some Duct tape for its intended purpose and covered the vent
Ran the CTS cable up and reinstalled the dash. The gear shifter is in the "D" position
I didnt have to trim any of the vent opening at all, so i can reinstall the grille with 2 of the 3 screws if i ever decide to sell my truck.
