    I am looking for something to put in my truck to hold my mod. a cup holder type is not what I want.
    if you made your own, post a pic. I may end up making my own.

    thanx

    I have this in the car. The car has a ashtray in the bottom middle of the dash. The kind that pulls out and has cup holders on each side.
    I tucked the velcro flap on the top of the bag under the ash tray and the ashtray went back in it's place, to hold it. I also put the hook side of velco where it would grab onto those belt loop straps on the back of the bag. Holds everything nicely. Something you could easily modify for your own mounting solution if need be.

    I didn't think to put it in my ashtray(once I clean it). but mine is kind of awkward.

    I am thinking something along the lines of the cell phone holder type.

    @jinx'd do you have the floor console in your truck? Having the 2 cup holders right next to me is awesome holds my water and MOD with the rubber OEM insert it is perfect.

    I see you squeezed a Double Din Radio in your truck also. All the audio shops around here wouldn't even touch it because it isn't an easy job and took me longer to customize the bezel than to do the install. I had to buy the additional Parking Brake Bypass harness so I would have full control of the Bluetooth and the DVD/Media Player.

    yeah, I did the install. the standard, what we have. and the DD. the DD is pricy if you have to buy from someone that knows what they have. but no mods needed. the standard, I just trimmed the top and bottom a little. then I trimmed some plastic angle that I had to fill in the sides. and, the face stands out from the bezzle and angles in(towards me) and up. it really is sweet. RE XXX 6 2/1" components in custom FG door pods I made. tweets in custom pods at the top of the doors. SOUNDSTREAM TURANSULA amp. 2 RE XXX 8" subs(woofers) in boxes I made, behind the seats. budget high end system and sounds pretty darned good.
    crap, I don't have finished pics.

    I am still using the OEM speakers although I had to change the rears because I had a problem with them since I got the truck. Have all 6 from my last Blazer that got totaled. If I do anything I will have one of my old customers build me some custom speakers to fit under the door panels~!

    Mine is an LT so all that is stock and while you lower, I raised mine as I plow in the winter so crank those torsion bars up to sit level with 7 foot Myers plow blade on it.

    where are you ? and/or, do they use salt ? I see many plow trucks. if they are not junk/rusted, they are new.

    I am on Long Island and I plow in Queens which is NYC and they use Salt and Brine but I wash my truck as soon as the temperature rises above freezing. Been using this truck for 2 years plowing so far and it gets washed and detailed as soon as it gets warm enough to do it myself. If we have an Arctic Blast I will run it through the car wash~!

    I have this spay can. I fill it with engine oil and solvent(to thin it). then charge it with compressed air. I spray all over the underside of the truck, hard lines, body seems, fittings, etc. I also put white grease on some things. if you have not checked your gas filter fittings, do it now !

    I have found clean is better than being oil soaked because dirt sticks to the oil and here sand is mixed with the salt so you don't want that sticking to things. I used a Rustoleum Rust inhibitor paint on the chassis after I got it out of the body shop.

    I use a cell phone case that has the belt/pocket clip. I clipped it to door pocket and I keep my mod in it when I'm not vaping while driving lol
