JMS F5 Mount + F650 Manual Dash?

Thinking of doing the F650 manual dash mod.

I have a DP Tuner F5 on my truck, so one of the things I was looking to do is get the JMS switch mount and use some of the space on the F650 dash piece to mount it.

My question is, does anyone know if either the upper or lower flat section of the F650 manual dash are tall enough to accommodate the JMS switch mount?

F5 & F6 JMS EX Switcher In-Dash Mount - Chip Switches & Misc. - Tuning - Ford Powerstroke 7.3L

Looking at this pic, it "seems" like there might be enough room around the switch itself for the JMS mount, (at least on the lower section, maybe not the upper) but I'd like to know for sure before I go ordering things.

I've got that lower dash panel sitting in my garage right now. You have no idea the h-e-ck I had to go through to get one. No one I could find could supply me with a part# that any Ford dealer could use. I finally ended up with one that was black, and had no cup holder hole in it. If you have a part# please, do yourself a favor and see if you can actually get that part first. The problem is the parts system that is used for those bigger trucks isn't the Ford system most dealers have. In crossing the #'s I had found they all came back as a different part of the dash. Not the part I wanted.

If you want any specific dimensions, PM me with what you want and I can measure it tonight.

Have the measurements of the JMS mount...

Can someone with the F650 lower dash (manual) measure either/both of the flat surfaces to see if there's room?

The back for the hole is 2-1/4 X 1-3/8” and the front is 2-5/8 x 1-3/4”

I wish I would have known that when I was looking for mine. I still may buy another one because I can't bring myself to loose my cup holders.
I will go measure mine tonight.

1. Riff Raff is a LOT more expensive that you can put together your own setup.

2. That's the auto version that sticks out a lot more. Not what I'm looking for. I plan to go with the manual version that isn't as visually obtrusive.

Just wanting a place to stick a couple of switches and my F5 switch. Not going for the wrecker or 747 ****pit look.

Ok, so a few weeks ago I got the measurements for the JMS mount from Jody @ DP Tuner and made a template to use for mock up. The size of the template is the exact dimensions of the face of the JMS mount, with the black line on the template being the dimensions of what the hole would need to be based on the lip/overhang of the mount.

Today my F650 manual lower dash panel came in, so I was able to determine that there just isn't enough room on the top section. You would either have to cut into the curved edge at the top, or have the mount overhanging on the bottom where the dash steps down to the lower section. Would be hard to do without it looking like a hack job.




Now, it does look like there's just enough room on the bottom section for it to sit flat and flush. The only thing I'm concerned about is location height on the bottom section. I'm going to wait until I get the lower dash panel installed in the truck and get a feel for whether the bottom section of the panel is too low to have the switch mounted, or an ok/acceptable height. Just don't want it so low that it's hard to see, a stretch to reach, or worry about the buttons being easily hit with legs or knees.

I ended up just putting it to the left of the AC controls and I am really happy with location now as far as ease of reach etc.

Here is a link with pics of my install

Did you finish the F650 dash?

What ended up happening? Did you get the lower dash installed?
Wanted to ask for the part number on that last dash picture showing on the oven.
Also, the top "knockout" in the upper portion of the new dash, will this fit the control switch for the brake/gas pedals?

Found more info

Ok, so I did find the part# for the manual, 4C4Z-7004302-HA (I think BA is the auto version). Check Out this
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...subcat1=159318
Not sure if he's a sponsor or if he is a vendor, but partsguyed has the one with no hole inthe upper portion.
Couldn't find the Part# without the hole though.
Also, after more research the little hole in the upper left of the F650 manual will not fit the brake/gas pedal height actuator switch.... or whatever the heck it's called.

Once more question though, has anyone tried to fit guages in the TOP portion of the Manual F650 lower dash?
I called Riff Raff and he said they put switches in the top and the guages down below, but I really want to see the guages as best as possible.
Anyone try it?
