    I currently own 6 vehicles (a 1993 Dodge RAM 250 Club Cab, 1996 RAM 1500, 1991 (?) F150, 1983 Ford Ranger, 1965 Mustang, and a 2000 Lincoln Town Car golfing edition thing) and in my 93 Dodge I have a car dock. It’s mice to have buuuut there is a issue. It’s giant. I mounted it beside my handmade CB show what there saying device and uses serial on the 28 to transcribe the words. I needed a dock so I wouldn’t have to hope that I hit something bad. Now the 93 Ram isn’t “commuting” but I do in the ranger. I should put the everything in the ranger but I didn’t. Now should you buy one. Note these. There big for a 27 / 28/ 29 /30 dock. A 19 dock that @BaRRmaley has isn’t as gigantic as the 27 /28 /29 / 30 floor mounted dock. In the end it doesn’t even mattterrrr there fine and I own too many cars. No that’s not a thing :p

    I had a mount in my 2002 Ranger. I loved it for the time I had it. I *almost* installed an external WWAN and GPS antenna. I loved it for the year+ I had it mounted. Then my company started pushing me to use the Lenovo laptop they supplied since we deal with sensitive info and they are locked down. I grudgingly switched over.

    The mount I have for my Ranger is articulated so it swings out of the way when not needed but can be situated to allow for a passenger if needed. I have since removed the mount. Easy to do with two bolts and takes 2-3 minutes.

    I don’t like Lenovo for a few reasons. However there early ThinkPads (T60) are nice. Now back to car docks. The one I have I got free from a old police car (aka the 96 RAM I got). Now the fact is that I took it out and put it in the nice 93 RAM. But my 336K+ miles I have on it has taken the toll. It needs transmission work, new turbo, new radio, and a new car dock. It’s fine but I put my *cough* *cough* CF-27 *cough* *cough* it fell on me. I know knew that I for got to bolt it in. Notice that I used random bolts and well it rusted out of place. I remember getting salt for something and it getting on it. Then later I spilled some Soda on it. Yay rust (sarcasm)! Now then I took it out and now I got a new one. Well it’s for the 30 buuut it still is fine. Same connecter and everything.

    I used 1/2npt steel pipe to mount my docks and it works ally well. I have one for Town and country vans that bolts between the seat and sub mount bracket for rentals, as well as a mount for my Savana, and I had one for my Astro, too. If you work it out correctly, the dock will swing out of the way.

    I'm not sure what your question is, but there's my answer....
