    I am installing Dakota digital dash and also AAW upgraded wiring harness. Where has everyone mounted the processor box and where did you go though the firewall at (looking at speedometer cable hole). This is on a 70 thanks

    you can wire tie it to dash bracket behind gauges. I drilled hole in firewall and put a rubber grommet to protect, I have a few wires and a hard oil pressure line going through

    I set mine on top of the ash tray holder.
    I ran my wires through a hole I drilled in the steering column plate. The hole is covered by the plastic scuff plate

    I used velcro and attached the processor to the heater box under the glove box. Also mounted the GPS speedometer in the same location. Easy access if needed.

    That is where i ended up mounting mine (on firewall behind gauges) also found a firewall boot and used the speedo cable hole to run all cables/ extra wires though. Thanks for the help
