I use the gopro suction cup right next to the rear view mirror.
I get too muddy to mount outside the Jeep...

Speaking of mounting a GoPro. I've seen some bars that go across the dashboard that allow you to mount various phones, gopros, etc.. to it. Anyone know what those are called by chance?

I know some sport cages have bars that go across the dash, maybe this is what you saw.

I have the suction cup and the big clamp. I'll use the suction cup on the windshield and I've clamped mine to the stinger, fenders, and slider. From the slider you can get some good shots of the wheel travel, just make sure you tie it off somewhere in case it gets knocked off. :)

I have the Rugged Ridge mount and personally while it's great as a phone mount it is terrible as a GoPro mount. I went out and got the suction mount from Amazon, here's where I mounted it and got really good video.

I keep mine on the suction cup base and move it as needed. I put it on the door to shoot the front tires, put it on the windshield, where ever. I also use the flat base it came with and set the GoPro on the ground and drive over it.

I have the RR mount on my dash but I keep my point and shoot that shoots 1080p there for the "over the hood" shots.

I have several mounting points for my go pro. I have a mount on my winch, rear bumper, dash, and I also have roll bar clamps. I just mount it wherever the mood strikes. However, some of my best videos is when I have the go pro mounted on a pole. You can get some awesome birds eye views and under the Jeep. For those who are into selfies, the pole mount will let you show off your shit eating grin as you tackle the trails.

I have one just right to the right of the gauges on top of the dash. Just the standard sticky mount clip.

We're going to Pike's Peak and up into the Rockies in a few weeks so I bought a suction cup mount with a safety so I can mount the GoPro on the passenger side door right below the mirror and secure the safety to the mirror in case the mount loses suction.

I used a suction cup inside but what I also bought a naked frame and a long usb cable so I could constantly power the go pro while using the remote to control everything all day. Haven't used it in a while but it was a lot easier than reaching up and pressing it before a climb, etc

I really like the adhesive quick disconnect mounts. I've got them on top of front and rear bumper, on bottom of front bumper to get suspension shots, on the windshield under the rear view mirror, and on the light cover on the sport bar between the seats. Makes it easy to move for additional camera angles. I also use the suction cup mounts now and then behind the front wheels, and on the side rear glass panels.

Clamps. If you want to shoot cool GP, clamps is where it is.

Front sway bar facing backward
Rear SB facing forward
Passenger window forward
Front fender facing forward
Driver or Passenger rain gutter facing Forward and Back.
