    Lacking a good spot for cell phone placement in my double cab is a real tragedy!!

    I need some suggestions on what to use to mount my phone for hands free usage, navigation, and other visibility purposes. Who has a good spot, and which brand did you go with?

    It depends on the mount you choose. It’s a two piece solution. You buy the dash mount then the phone mount. I use. Magnetic phone mount so I can spin mine indefinitely.

    Go to their site and enter your truck. It will show you your options. I repeat it ain’t cheap. Don’t blame me lol.

    If you want a cheapie...
    https://www.amazon.com/iOttie-Universal-Holder-iPhone-Samsung/dp/B00JRGOKQ8

    I mount it down here for regular driving to control my music.

    When I’m wheeling, I mount it on the windshield for gps and also use it to record videos.

    It’s a little shaky on rough terrain but works good enough. Most of the time I just keep my phone here...

    You mean the base is magnetic? I think our silver parts are plastic.

    if i'm mistaken it's super strong. pretty sure spvrtan uses them. i'm wondering if they reach deep behind the dash but i've never taken the dash apart. i'm just not excited about much of what i've seen and there are normally at least two phones in my console cup holders, which i hate

    if i could only replace my console.................................................

    But can’t imagine that won’t scratch the silver plastic eventually.

    It wont stick to your dash unless you take your dash apart and stick some strong magnets on the other side. If I were you, I would just get something that mounts with 3M tape. There are lots of dash mounts on Amazon that use tape to mount with.

    Perception is reality. Just keep telling her you already did the things you promised and eventually she'll believe it....kinda like The Truman Show

    That’s right... those Camburgs are purty. I’m just glad my wife’s little purse fetish is over. Purses and women’s haircuts are the two most overpriced things ever. It’s crazy.
