The only problem I see that you have the floor shift where I like my radios. I had a 97 Dodge PU and I bought a new dash cover for it. I used the dash cover to hold the speaker mount and I am sure you can do the same thing to hold the remote head mount. I put a backing under the dash cover and countersunk the screw heads to point them up and fastened the spkr mount on top of the dash cover. Worked well and didn't slide around once the cover was fastened down with velcro. Kept holes out of the dash and those other places we usually wind up drilling into. Good luck

Frank,
Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like it may be just what I'm looking for.

I have also cut up 3/4" white PVC and made a mount for the radio that I used in my Chev and Dodge PU. Send me an e-mail if you are interested in pics. Send to sirdrakejr@aol.com

I've got my 706MKIIG along with AT180 Tuner mounted in my '99 Ranger 4x4.  Both units fit
nicely underneath my passenger seat.  My remote cable runs up to my center counsole where
my remote head is located.   There's plenty of room underneath the seat for both units and I've
run ground straps from both units to where the seat mounts to the frame.  My arm rests on the
counsole and makes for easy operation.   Email me if you would like to see pictures.
