Got tired of my tablet sliding off the center console, so I made use of odd dash tray on my Bighorn.

Formed a piece of MDF,and some L brackets. MDF is held in by screws from underneath.

Attached OtterBox stand to brackets with misc. hardware I had laying around. I never use the stand so it was just collecting dust. Quick coat of Plasti-Dip( I love that stuff).

Might want to try lowering it a bit. It looks to be in the path of your passenger air bag. Get into a crash strong enough to tip that sensor and you'll have all that hardware coming your way.

thanks for the info. i didnt even think about that. my original plan was to attach a piece of strap metal to the back ( think Hot water heater strap for earthquakes) and then just slip it over the L brackets , making it removable. maybe ill revisit that idea.
