GoPro or other camera mount setups?

Got one for Christmas, where and how do you mount it on your jeep.

ive see a lot in the grill, by the driver side window(outside), on top of winch. on top of the Jeep, looking down would be good as well, but if you are going to mount it i might throw some duct name on the mount to be safe. i got mine ripped off by a branch last year skiing, mount and all

I have a suction cup from Amazon and the adaptor for the go pro to a standard 1/4 20 tri pod mount.

basically you can suction cup it anywhere you want. i try to keep it by the drivers side door so i can reach out and turn it on and off.

another fun thing i have done is to put it on the ground in between two rocks prior to crawling over them. a bit risky but these things are tough.

another good thing about the adaptor is that i can use a 1/4 20 bolt through any hole in/on the jeep and mount the go pro there.

check out the link in my signature for some videos with shots from the go pro.

How strong is the suction cup mount? I'm looking to get one but am uneasy about hanging my $300+ camera by a suction cup. I know for a fact that I am going to use the handlebar mount for some shots from my side mirrors.

I took the mount that to camera comes on its the flat piece that connects to the clear plastic top drilled 4 holes in it one in each corner and zip tied it to the vent opening center right under the windshield works great. Also have the suction cup. I used it a few times its rated for over 200 mph had it mounted on the hood of my friends mustang when we did some quarter mile passes it didnt even budge in my opinion the suction cup is the best for mounting

Ive been using my gopro on my jeep for about a year now with the suction cup. I dont like putting it on my hood or grille/winch because it dosent get a good shot of the jeep. I like putting it on the winsheild oppisite of the rear view mirror. I also like to put it right under my gas tank inlet facing rear to front so i can get a good angle of the whole jeep and its cool becuase you get to see the tires,the course, and the flex of your jeep.

Planning on taking my dads out next weekend on a wheeling trip. I was thinking the handlebar mount (he's a cyclist) and putting it on the tie rod? Aside the obvious problems of blunt trauma, either there, or a rear UCA. Somewhere to get a good and interesting view.

Look forward to more pics.

I have watched a video I was in of a GoPro filming me right seat (V8 TJ on 40's ) from the perspective of a XJ where he had it mounted on the driver side rear window. It got most of the XJ as well as all of the trail action. Thats what I am looking for to obtain since my TJ doesn't have a hardtop to mount to the rear window.

Continue on.
