A New Updated version of the JKDMA is now available. It is still the same dimensions as the original but with the added features of nine (9) device mounting positions instead of just the two (2) that was only available on the previous JKDMA Plate. One of them is the option to have a centrally mounted device were as it wasn't possible with the previous JKDMA Mounting Plate.
Switching between the new mounting positions will now be very easily done; no need to remove the baseplate.
With the JK Dual Mount Assembly you have the choice of either mounting one or two devices at the same time. For example; one Cell Phone and one handheld GPS unit. You can adjust each device independent of each other for optimal viewing.
It is extremely easy to mount to your Jeep and requires absolutely no modification to install. Just remove the rubber liner from the cubby hole, center top dash, by pulling up and out. Then remove the center screw, drop in the JK Dual Mount Assembly, replace screw and that's it, you're done.
Here are just a few of the devices that can be mounted to the Dual Mount Assembly; Cell Phones, small Digital Cameras, GoPro Camera, GPS units, Spot 1, Spot2 and so on.
The JK Dual Mount Assembly comes with everything you need accept a Ram Cradle (required) for whatever particular device/devices you have. We carry a few Cradles and Accessories in our store but if we don't have what you need then we can either get it for you (best option) or you can order one directly from Ram Mounting Systems, INC.

For the JK Dual Mount Assembly (JKDMA) to work you will need to add a cradle (required) for your particular device/devices that you wish to use. Since there is absolutely no way in knowing what device/devices that people have or may get in the future, a cradle/cradles needs to be added to the JKDMA kit. We do have a few to choose from that you can add to the shopping cart if you wish.
If we don't have what you need then we can either get it for you (best option) or you can order one directly from Ram Mounting Systems, INC.
In order for us to get you the Cradle you need (if not available in our store) then please either call (702-565-6942) or send an E-Mail with make and model of the device/devices you have and we will add it to your order. An invoice will then be e-mailed to you for your authorization and payment; very simple and fast. Doing it this way will save you any extra shipping charges and everything you need will be delivered at the same time.
Start by removing the rubber liner from the cubby hole located at the top center of the dash next to the front windshield by pulling up and out. It can be stubborn.
Next remove the center screw that was under the rubber liner.
Now drop in the JKDMA, replace the factory screw along with the # 8 x 11/16 SS Flat Washer that is supplied in the JKDMA kit. Tighten and you're done.
Note:If the factory screw came with a washer then discard it and use only the supplied # 8 x 11/16 SS Flat Washer supplied in the JKDMA kit.
Note:If you plan to use the center mount on the JKDMA then you must first install the supplied round 2 x 1/8-inch aluminum spacer with the center cutout slot. Just slide it over the three (3) studs before installing the Ram Round Base Plate.
Important:NOT USING THE SPACER FOR THE CENTER MOUNT WILL DAMAGE THE JKDMA BASE PLATE.
Part 2: Device Mounting
Assemble the cradle for your device by attaching the diamond shaped ball stud (Ram-B-238U) which is included with the JKDMA kit to the back of the cradle. The hardware should have been included with the cradle.
Note:Some cradles will come with a ball stud as an integral part of the cradle. If so, then the above step #1 does not apply.
Insert your device into the cradle.
Now take the assembled cradle w/device and either the small arm (Ram-B-201U-A) or medium length arm (Ram-B-201U) and mount both to the JKDMA. Adjust as necessary and tighten arm.
Note:For best results, keep the mounted device as low as possible. This is achieved by using an arm that will keep the mounted device closest to dash. The higher the device is mounted the more unwanted movement will result.
Note:Even though you will have the ability to have three (3) Ram Round Base Plates mounted to the JKDMA at the same time, depending on configuration, only two (2) devices should/can be mounted at any one time. The most common/popular setup would be to use the two (2) outer-most positions.
Part 3: Device Removal
If you want to remove a device from the cradle only, while still mounted to the JKDMA, use caution. Some cradles will grip the device very tight and you will need to support the Assembly during removal; use two hands.
Another option is to loosen the arm and remove both the arm and cradle with device attached, leaving just the JKDMA.
On some cradles you can add a quick release attachment (not included) that will allow you to remove the cradle and device as a single unit, thus leaving the arm in its locked position. The advantage to this is that you can return the device/cradle back onto the arm in the exact same position as before because the arm was never disturbed and there is no need to readjust anything.
Tools needed for install:
7mm socket for the factory screw.
3/8 socket or wrench to mount the round Ram base plate/plates.
Here's an option for your cell phone that won't get in the way or clutter-up your dash. It uses the space between the steering column and center dash console that is nothing more than dead space, perfect for a cell phone.
The bracket is angled up so you have a better view of the screen. A Ram mount (included) attaches to the bracket and accepts most cell phones up to and including the iPhone 4/5 size, any phone larger will not fit. It uses a one-touch release button to easily remove the phone.
With the iPhone you can also use the car charger and the USB cord while in the cradle.
Note:Some of the wider covers for the iPhone may not fit in the cradle.
Note:Please check the dimensions below to confirm if your phone will work before ordering.
The dimensions of the clamping area are as follows.
Put a piece of masking tape on the upper right corner. Example
Using a square or similar measuring device, measure exactly 1-inch down from the top and make a mark. Example
Now measure exactly 3 and 1/16 down from the 1-inch mark you just made and put a mark there.
Take the square and scribe a line through each of the two marks that were just made in steps 4 and 5. Example
Now take the square and adjust it to exactly 9/16-inch and from the outside edge of the trim panel scribe a line through each of the two lines made from step 6. Example
Next, use a sharp pointed instrument like a scribe and make an indentation in the center where the lines cross. These will serve as a guide for the drill bit.
It is strongly recommended to drill a small pilot hole (1/8th or smaller) first before drilling the 17/64-inch hole required for the bracket. Even though it's just plastic you're drilling through, without a pilot hole you run the risk of the bit pulling to one side or the other.
Remove any raised plastic from the drilled holes so that bracket and washers will lay flat against the panel.
Now just install the bracket with the two flat washers and two nyloc nuts. Example
