Adding Accy's To Chev P/U

Pretty broad topic..

Here's what I want to do.. and hope some of you have an answer.

I have an 05 Chev HD2500 CC. I also have in it a Garmin GPS and want to add a TPMS.. who knows, maybe a Ham xcvr. or a radar detector, or plug in's for the phone or ??? What happened to the good old days when we didn't have all this "stuff"

Just with the GPS on the dash, I have a great case of the 'uglies'. The cord going to the accy plug looks terrible, not to mention in the way of the radio/cd controls.

I'd like some ideas on what you've done for organization of your electronic stuff. I seem to recall.. seeing somewhere.. someone mentioning a shelf where the drivers visor is.. but, don't know where that thread was.. or if it was on this forum. That might well take care of most of my issues if I can find a nice clean way to do this.

The shelf is an aftermarket item, which might be found through one of the internet diesel shops accessory pages. It will not fit if your truck has the factory ceiling console though. I considered one, but thought better when I discovered I'd have to remove the ceiling console; which meant removing the distance/mileage computer, etc.

The thread is in the tow vehicle's forum. The "Shelf It" shelf comes in a split shelf design that works with the factory overhead console. I have one in my GMC. Only advise is, do not put anything up there that will slide out and hurt you if you accelerate fast. Ask me how I know.... Secure bigger items elsewhere. Shelf can be drilled easily as it is plastic, to mount GPS, radar detection devices, ect. Mine came with accessory plugs for each side overhead. Easily stores phone charger up there and provides an out of sight place to store things.

Thanks folks.. I did a google search and found Shelf It.. but it doesn't look to have any depth. I'll check it further and also go to the tow vehicle's forum to see if I can locate it.

I spent an hour on my smart phone looking, and another on my laptop, and I can't find what I have in my GMC Sierra.
They are molded plastic, mount them by removing the sun visor on each side of the window, and reinstalling them through the shelf with longer screws. That inturn, drops the visor down by about 1/2 inch. I bought it back in 2004. Wish I could find it for you.
