I'm looking for some ideas on mounting my cell phone. The cigarette lighter (accessory plug) holder just doesn't cut it, especially with the manual transmission.

Pleas post some pics...thanks for the help!

Bracketron. Works great as GPS, camera, heads up display. Etc. Wasn't sure of quality of design, however, if you keep the green mounting pad clean it holds great.

The Cigarette Lighter Holder, doesn't cut it for me either. It is always loose and destroys the cigarette lighter. Also, it has too many wires everywhere.

I'm looking for a console bezel mount cell phone holder. One with a goose neck cable attached to the bezel with the wires(power and Aux), coming from behind the bezel through the goose neck so that there aren't loose wires everywhere. This way you could mount it on the left or right side of the bezel and adjust the goose neck where you want it. It would be real clean this way and you could save your cigarette lighter. I think I saw it at the dealership. If I get it, or find one, I'll post pictures.

I think that's everything, or most of it.

This is a copy of what i posted, from another thread:


Ram Mount parts
We use a combination of mounts in the jeep. We have a handlebar rail mount on our Welcome Distributing grab handle. We also have a universal no-drill seat mount on the passenger seat. Either of these mounts will work with the Xgrip series holders for the iPhone/iPad. We have one of each. We typically mount the phone on the grab handle and the iPad on the seat mount, just for better visibility. The iPad would be a heck of an additional blind spot in the windshield.

Both mounts are swivels, so you can angle them to your exact liking. The iPhone mount was steady enough that Mike was able to capture video out on the trail in Hurricane Creek in North Carolina. He posted the video on the forum somewhere, but I don't remember where. If you search for WhiskeyMike Hurricane Creek, you should find it. It didn't bounce around very much at all. The iPad, being so much heavier, does wobble a bit on the floor seat mount, but nothing that you can't live with. When I am in the passenger seat, I just rest my leg on the mount and it doesn't move any more, and its not uncomfortable.

They are all marine grade parts, so they should wear/last a while. My father has used Ram Mount products on his motorcycles for years and he's never had a problem with them.

One caveat: the Xgrip mounts aren't limited to iPhones or iPads. You can use them on different devices within a certain size range, with or without cases.

Here are the links to the parts we've used from Ram's website. But check both Amazon and eBay for the best price when you are ready to purchase.



RAM POD I Universal No-Drill

RAM Cradle Holder - Universal X-Grip

RAM X-Grip™ 10" Tablet Mounts

RAM Handlebar Rail Mount with Zinc Coated U-Bolt Base & Round Base Adapter that Contains a 1/4"-20 Thread for Cameras

I also posted some pictures in that thread, if you care to look. There were several other options people posted as well.

Ahhhhh your jeep is so sickkk. I'm thinking of doing some mods to my 07 I recently have installed some side steps. Only cause I ripped two pair of cargo shorts getting in. But I'm looking into flooring right now. Just got the metal right now. And am trying to get some LEDs in the dash.

Also personal preference but have you thought about cutting your fender flares mine are stock fender flares but they are just cut and it makes it look bad ass. And I'm running 32's but my jeep could run 35's.
