What's The Best Phone Mount For Your Truck?

Do you own a truck? Here are the best mounts to use, according to your truck's make and model.

It can be especially hard to find a reliable location to mount smartphones for truck owners. Some mounts currently on the market are not only bulky, they actually block visibility, and ultimately do more harm than good. We’re showcasing the best phone mounts on the most popular truck models. We're also including a beautiful photo collection of the best spots to place the mounts on your dash for maximum use and optimal visibility.

Phone Mounts for Ford F-Series

Swivel Mount

BAM Mount

As the most popular truck brand in America by sales, we had to find the best spot to mount smartphones inside Ford trucks. The newer Ford F-Series has some great locations to mount the Swivel Mount and BAM Mount (just check out the photos above!). Air vents in the newer models are smaller than previous versions, but you can easily mount Rokform’s Vent Mount onto the top slot of the air vent.

For older Ford F-Series trucks, the best place to mount is still the center driver’s side air vent. The air vent itself is a bit smaller, but the vent clip has no problem grabbing onto the air vent slats. There's also plenty of space to install Rokform's magnetic dash mount.

 

Phone Mounts for Chevrolet Silverado

There are great Rokform mounting options in the Chevy Silverado. The large air vent works perfectly with Rokform’s vent mount without cutting off your air supply. There is also an open space just above the driver’s side center air vent, which easily fits a BAM Mount. The flat dashboard surface is also perfect for the Swivel Mount.

 

Phone Mounts for Ram Pickups

Like the Chevy Silverado, Ram trucks have well-sized center air vents that work well with the Vent Mount. Stick the mount on the top slate so airflow won't be blocked by your phone and you can stay cool. There's also a ton of space just to the left of the air vent, if you prefer the BAM mount, or plenty of dashboard room for a Swivel Mount.

 

Phone Mounts for Toyota Trucks

The new Swivel Mount looks GREAT on any Toyota truck dash. The air vents are smaller than what you'd find in the Chevy or Ram, so a BAM or Swivel Mount are your best options.

 

Phone Mounts for Jeeps

The Swivel Mount may be the newest Rokform car mount, but we've already received tons of great feedback from our customers. Jeep owners especially have noted that it's the best mounting option they've come across for driving. The photo above shows the Vent Mount in a new Jeep Wrangler. Jeep air vents are typically smaller, so we'd recommend sticking with the Swivel Mount (pun intended!). No photos yet, but we'll hopefully have some soon!

 

Don't forget your Rokform case

For the optimal use of the mounts above, picking up a Rokform case is essential. The Rugged case (pictured above) is not only the most popular case, it's also the toughest. The built-in magnet will grip to all Rokform mounts we've featured. The Rugged is also handy for tons of other daily uses. 

Price: $39.99+

My Tundra is especially tough to mount w/out blocking the air vents. I use the Rokform windshield mount in all three of our family cars & trucks to ensure a universal fit no matter the driver or phone.

I’m not in the habit of writing reviews, but as a user of Rokform’s products for a few years now, I wanted to add a comment.
I purchased the air mount and have it installed in my F-350. Not only has it proven to be the most practical phone mount I have come across, both in terms of its ease of use and the proximity to the driver that it presents, the quality is typical Rokform: exceptional. An added benefit that wasn’t really contemplated when I made the purchase is that of keeping your phone nice and cool, even while sitting in the hot sun. Any iPhone user who has experienced their phone shutting down to cool off due to undue heat exposure should surely appreciate this.
Keep it up, folks!
