THIS is what I want to do but the only way I know of to do it is to replace the factory Jeep passenger grab handle with this machined aluminum grab handle made by Carolina Metal Masters.

I talked to Brian at Carolina Metal Masters yesterday (888-215-3815) and he expects to have 1" diameter machined balls that can be installed on the A pillar designed expressly for this purpose (Ram mount use).
Brian said they'd probably be making them in black anodized and a natural anodized finish.
Here's a pic of it installed with a Ram Mount attached holding a tablet:
They already make a grab handle for the A pillar that uses a ball similar to this - you can see it here:
