    Pop socket phone mount works great if you dont mind the thing on your phone. Use it on my work van and phone. Haven’t tried in my tacoma yet.

    I have the RAM mount in my truck, albeit with the two part mount (which allows for more articulation) with the slope of our ‘A’ pillar.

    I love it. Better than any other phone mount I’ve seen.

    The X mounts have a tendency to loose their rubber fingers. Pull them off and then superglue them back on so they stay put.

    The newer ones come with the fingers glued on "at least the one my buddy got for his bike did, the one I got a couple years earlier I had to glue".

    Tacoma is stock and staying that way, Pickup is TBA as of now.
    I'm lazy and just throw mine in either the cupholder or next to the t-case lever nestled in the shift boot! Lol

    I ride too and every single X mount I have seen or used that came with the fingers pre-glued still ended up coming off. At least check them regularly I would say. I actually stopped using the X mount on my bike and went with a much sturdier mount that wont fall apart like that.

    This one is actually much better IMO, as long as your phone fits. Works with most cases. I used this on my bike during a 4000 mile road trip without issues.

    In the Taco, I'm using a Mob Armor magnetic mount now and really like it. Very solid mount and easy to use.
