Carolina Metal Masters made a RAM A-Pillar Ball Mount out of 7075 Aluminum. This replaces one of the bolts in the A-pillar. The mount installation doesn’t require any modification to the Jeep interior. I’ve paired this mount with a few RAM Mount parts:
- RAM Universal X-Grip
- RAM Mount 1.75 inch Long Double 1 inch Ball Arm
- RAM Mount Short Arm B-Socket
- RAM Mount Medium Arm B-Socket
The X-grip has a clever four leg design that places enough pressure on your device to securely hold it. It works with any phone and/or case. I’ve used it with my iPhone 4S and iPhone 6. Both fit well and were very secure, even off-road. Two sockets were connected with a double ball arm to angle it out of the drivers view. It also brings the unit closer to the driver. For long road-trips when my iPhone has DJ duty it’s in the perfect spot. I also use it to control my GoPro camera remotely. This location is close enough to be accessible and non-obtrusive.
Proof that this mount is wicked secure:
