KUDA Cell Phone Mount Installed w/ Pics
 
Hey Guys,

I just installed the KUDA Grand Cherokee mount with a universal phone holder on my 14 SRT. I went with this one as it looked clean and didn't block the vents or cup holders. Here it is...

I did have to do some minor modifications during install though because of course it says it fits in my 2014 SRT when really it doesn't. But this is Jeep Garage and do we send it back, NO we mod it to fit! Below is the install.

First I had to remove the center dash piece. I started at the bottom where the storage compartment just underneath is and started pulling from there working my way around the edges.

Once I got all of the clips popped off there is one cable to disconnect.

Then came the real fun...

The mold of the leather wrapped fiberglass part didn't around the top part of the vent as promised. So I took a hack saw to the bottom lip of the fiberglass piece just far enough so it wouldn't go through the leather at the bottom and just enough to bend so I could wrap it around....

Once that was cut, shaped and formed to how I liked it I had to drill holes in the top of the center dash and the metal piece attached to the fiberglass part...

Then I mounted it...

I put the vent back on and added some velcro to the bottom tab attached to the fiberglass part. Popped the center dash piece back in...

And then took the double sided sticky piece and stuck to the universal holder and the fiberglass piece to come out with the finished product...
