dakota digital mounting ?

Hi all
Where is everyone mounting the control boxes for the vhx dash? Also, did y'all just splice into the factory cluster harness for the indicator and warning lights.
Thanks

I'm interested to hear the answers to your questions...I just ordered the VHX kit myself. Looks great...can't wait to install it.

Re: dakota digital mounting ?

I put one of these VHX instrument panels in my truck. Firstly, I have installed a Vintage Air unit and I have blocked off the kick panel vents. I won't be using those vents anymore. The VA unit comes with a block-off plate for the passenger side, but I had them include a second one for the driver side also.

I mounted the control box to the top of the driver side kick panel vent block-off plate. You will need to intercept the functions you intend to use (turn signals, high beam indicator, gauges... ) and route them to the control box. You'll need a good wiring diagram for your truck. I did mine in conjunction with a complete re-wire of my truck.

The VHX is really nice and you'll like it a lot.

Thanks for the input. I found what I hope to be a good wiring diagram
