    Looking for secure iPad holder...

    Does anyone here use an iPad or Tablet while off roading? I have a good strong one for iPhone (ioti). Looking to start using iPad for mapping and need something that wont fall off while off roading.

    Check out Ram Ball mounts. There are alot of products for mounting electronics because you can't be a real overlander without at least 3 electronic screens pointed directly at your face at all times.

    Or if you have a base radio this is an upgrade. I did this on my '14 and got a wireless iPad to put in the mount.

    That particular mount looks just like one Akron makes. I do not want it on my pass side floor. Ram does make one for dash but they are bending you over for what they charge. $140. to get started than $99 for iPad mount. They can blow me.

    Carolina metal masters makes a 1" ball that replaces the bolt in the passenger grab bar, I have one with a ram mount socket arm and X grip holding my phone. It seems to stay steady, would probably work with a medium sized iPad.

    They also have 1" ball mounts for the grab handles on the A Pillar too, I thought I had a discount code I would have given out but it expired on the 1st...

    I have not yet grabbed one for the iPad, but have been using 67designs mounts for awhile now.... solid stuff. Made in the USA so it is a little more pricey but I have have found them to be a far superior mount to the cheaper options I tried previously. Worth looking into IMO

    Buy once cry once. It mounts the iPad in the most usable location possible and if you use the cellular version you really have no need for the stock radio. It's paid for itself in the 3 years I've had it installed

    If you change your mind about having a floor mount iPad holder, I have one from RAM for sale for $100

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
