I bought it from ProClips website. Really nice holder. It doesn't stick but clips to the top of the dash by the coin holder and right above the radio. You buy the mount to fit you vehicle and then you buy the holder for your phone type. I got the phone holder that swivels so I can have the phone as pictured or sideways.

No they do not require door surrounds. They strap around the roll bar and that's it. I've got the model that goes all the way to the windshield. When I've got my soft top off, it helps to block the sun off me. It fits under the soft or hard top so once on it stays on. I took it for a ride today and no flapping either.

Weekend Mods

This took all weekend, but I thought I would post anyway. New rear Smittybilt XRC bumper with tire carrier, new Smittybilt XRC MOD front bumper with Quadratech 9500 lb winch. While waiting for the parts to show up Friday, I gutted the interior and put down a coat of Herculiner.

I'll have to look into those. I don't want to stick something with the foam tape. I don't have a coin holder above my radio but I'll have to check out what they have.

And on the flip side - my wife and kids are missing the "oh crap handles" I removed in favor of the GraBars...

Me? I have the steering wheel to hold on to, and I like the GraBars!

Looks like my head will be hitting the paracord grips when getting in and out.

Bad place for the factory grab handles, just get the GraBars as they are a HUGE improvement over the stockers and paracord

Go Grab bars and never look back. I swear you can use these things as a recovery point. They are that strong. Until you feel these you won't know what you're missing. Trust me.

That looks good. Nice to see someone going another route than black.

Right here. They're pretty cool and easy to install. They come in black, brushed, or polished. I went with polished to match the silver Sahara bumper.

And thanks, Dominus.

Today Im trying to design a tire cover and a window vinyl so I can order them tonight.

The custom vinyl made for my windshield was going to say "jeep girl" with scroll work on both sides. This just doesn't seem me... I'm sassier!

The girl doing it can do anything I want and is custom doing a tire cover for me... Ive attach the pictures of the 2 Ive designed with her. I've asked her to change them to all white... I designed the 2 with her and can't decide which saying I like better... BUT I'm looking for ideas for the windshield not the tire cover lol.

Any ideas on something better than "Jeep Girl".

sometimes it's about the destination not just the journey

Had the day off, went for a drive with some friends. Got in a nice short hike to a waterfall I've been wanting to see. Was heading out hoping to do a second hike that was much shorter when the rain hit. Decided to call it a day and head toward home stopping by an orchard to pick up some fresh apples.

If that's a Sahara, you didn't have the PlastiDip the silver piece on the bumper. You just remove the screws that hold it on, and once you take the piece off its a normal black bumper like a Sport or Rubi has. Same deal for the rear bumper too.

Tapcons. They are concrete screws. Any hardware store sells them. :-)
