What's the Best Phone Mount for your Truck? 2019

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

For truck owners it can be especially hard to find a reliable location to mount their smartphones. Many mounts you find on the market are not only bulky, they actually block visibility, ultimately doing more harm than good. We’re showcasing the best phone mounts to use on the most popular truck models. We're also including a sweet photo collection of the best spots to place the mounts for maximum use and optimal visibility. 

 

The Truck Mounts

Rokform Swivel Mount

Phone Mounts for Ford F-Series

Swivel Mount

Low Pro 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 Low Pro 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 Low Pro 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 Low Pro 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 Low Pro 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

Rugged 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+

Fuzion Pro Case

Another great option is the Fuzion Pro case. Fuzion Pro is fused from the finest materials, including CNC-machined aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber, plus high quality TPU and tough polycarbonate. The TPU provides shock protection around the entire case, protecting your phone from the most common points of impact. Raised edges offer protection for your screen while the anti-slip grip prevents your case from getting scratched. With a smartphone case that’s stacked with premium materials, you won’t be surprised when your case outlasts the life of your smartphone.

The quality of the Fuzion Pro is clear not only in its durability, (it exceeds military drop test standard MIL-STD 901G-516.6) but also in its thoughtful design. You don’t need to worry about poor design and functionality with this case. The ultra-responsive buttons and easy access ports help create a seamless user experience.

Price: $69.99

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!
