    Awesome GPS mount for Superduty

    I finally found a better way to mount the GPS and TireMinder in my 2019 Superduty.

    It starts with a Builtright Industries dash mount for 2017+ Ford Trucks:

    I originally saw this on a video from the Big Truck Big RV guy on Youtube. He shows how to install it as well. Took about an hour.

    I then designed and 3D printed an adapter to mount the Garmin holder to the mount, and modified the TireMinder mount by removing the suction cup and drilling a hole for a screw. All solid as a rock.
    The Garmin holder had four M2 threaded bosses on the bottom to mount the printed adapter. I would be happy to share the .stl files with anyone.

    Nice! Thanks! I kind of mocked up something like that with plexiglass which is working fine. But I like that bracket better.

    Now you need to add some USB ports up there....

    This is exactly what I have. I have my CB radio and my Ram Mount X-Mount for my phone mounted there!

    I agree on the USB ports. It's bad enough that I have 4 screens, I don't want USB wires all over the place as well!
