I'm currently using the suction cup mount and placing it on the inside of my front windshield. I saw someone mention this recently (Rugged Ridge 13551.11 Dash Multi-Mount System, 11-15 Jeep Wrangler ). I've seen a few videos where people used it to mount a cellphone, but not a GoPro. I know it says it should hold it, but what I'd love to see is how steady the video looks (any vibration?) and if the angle is good. I wouldn't want 2/3rds of the view to be hood if mounted too low.

Does anyone have pictures or videos that would help?

Thanks.

I've used a similar mount (Daystar upper dash panel) that has a universal ball socket that I've used with my cell phone to record a few things while driving - seems to work ok. If you tip up the camera a bit - you don't get as much hood :) but still prone to vibrations (as you can see here)

not as bad if you're driving on a flat surface (this is actually a road)

I used several of the stick-on type GoPro mounts on mine...one on top of the windshield frame, one on top of the sport bar, one on the left rock rail and one on the front lower surface of my Barricade front bumper. With the mounts, I can film in any direction or angle by switching in & out different flex fittings (the ones that come in the GoPro grab bags). The one under the bumper does an awesome job of filming the flexing and steering while on the trails, and the others are so adjustable that I can get every possible angle I would ever want. I use the GoPro Studio software to edit, so lots of different views and angles are good to have.
