    No offense but you’ve got to be fucking kidding me! Besides the design being butt ass ugly, the damn thing is $200 without any mounts.

    No thanks!

    I’ll wait for a sport cage that actually serves a purpose before I’d waste a dime on that. In fact, I would run that if they paid me.

    This was posted in another thread. If nothing else, it’s relatively affordable. It utilizes the same two dash screws I reference.

    My only thing is whether it can be modified to use the various RAM style mounts for phones and other accessories.

    Doesn’t look too bad either in the photos.

    Lol, so tell us how you really feel. It was just an option. I don’t personally like stuff mounted to my dash, but i know a lot of the over-landing guys swear by this in the jk’s. And yes it is ugly, but i think the function is there as far as mounting iPads and phones and such.

    I did. Lol. Guess I just don’t fit the “overlanding” mold then. If you need that much technology to go out in the wilderness, then maybe you are missing the point. Ha ha. I’m they will sell a few.

    I just need something to hold the style CB I have. And maybe my cell. And to do so without spending too much.

    Just thought I'd share this as an option. I just did this mod for a cell phone mount and it worked great. It's super solid.

    The RAM ball I used in the grab bar is this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    All I did was cut one of the bolts it came with down to about the same length as the one that was in the grab handle (with it inserted into the ball of course) and then opened up the hole in the handle a bit with a 1/4" drill.

    The magnetic mount on the other end of the arm is another concoction. Used a 1/4 20 ram ball and a scoche magnetic mount for air vents I had laying around. Didn't feel like dishing out the cash for an x grip and prefer the magnet mount.

    Did you put a nut on the back side of the grab handle? Did you remove the handle to do this ? If so, How does one remove it? I have a JL on order and this is very much like the set up I have on my 2016 JKUR. Holds my iPad mini just fine. Trying to figure out how to do this on the new JLU.
