K7MDL I mounted a 1" RAM diamond ball mount using the one screw and then using a new short screw for the other side of the mount into the tray bottom (rubber tray piece removed of course). I put a thin piece of rubber under the diamond mount to reduce creaking noise, also just slightly loosened the center screw to remove all squeaks.

I use this ball mount for a Hero Camera, a ham radio control head, or a Zumo GPS. Looking at some multi-ball adapters to enable more than one item.

I went to the cheapo Asian mobile phone kiosk and got a universal adjustable mount for my phone. The ball joints on these things are a standard size. I just had to make sure the mount had the female connection.

I suppose you might be able to find a mount that would fit a clinometer.

No it won't. What are you trying to do?

Either I don't understand what you are asking, or he answered your question perfectly.

No, the entire dash won't come out if that one screw it removed...that screw is one of four screws that holds the upper dash in.

No. The tray liner itself can be lifted up (to expose the screw you are talking about) but after that, no more. The rest is all one giant piece.

To get it out you need to remove the plastic plate beneath the steering wheel, then undo the two screws revealed by that. Pop the electric window switches out, there's another screw behind there. From memory that's the lot, once you've got those all out work from the door side and the whole thing just unclips. There are a few write-ups and videos around, search on "JK head unit replacement".
