    Sounds like a valving problem to me. Ive found with the Fox DSCs all the way out it rides great on washboards but get that annoying rocking in the rocks. Tighten them up and it's much better. You should be able to add DSC for your resi.

    What happened with your mob armor mount? My plastic one broke the spring out and they replace it no questions asked

    This ^ but like 3 times now. The last time the mount was just sitting in my desk drawer. Kinda over it. My buddy mounted a rail into his dash that I think if I ever wanted to go tablet mount I would use a rail system with ram mounts.

    For the phone I think it's fine, but their tablet one has shit casting in the plastic.

    I've actually had mine fall off on hard hits wheeling (talking slamming down a slider) but really it's the spring that has failed several times since 2018. Clearly there is an issue since @malburg114 had his spring bust out before too. Heard there was a bad batch or something, maybe it's better now. I ended up giving the parts from mine to my buddy cause he lost parts of his phone mount. It's a shame because I really liked the mount overall.

    hm mine has no springs so maybe mine is a different mount than what you're talking about.

    When I emailed them about, they said they are doing away with the plastic and mailed me the all metal one. May be worth to try one more time

    Just had a chat with customer service in case anyone cares.

    Is the base of the magnetic tab mount still plastic?

    For this mount: Tab Mount Magnetic

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - 17 minutes ago

    The max is all Aluminum

    sorry the Tab mount is a very hard plastic

    Visitor - 16 minutes ago

    Bummer, the tab mount has failed on me several times, the spring usually explode out of the bottom. I heard there was an all metal version but it looks like it's for the phone only.

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - 14 minutes ago

    We will have one but not until next year

    Visitor - 13 minutes ago

    Awesome, glad to know it is in the works. I was tempted to drill a rail into my dashboard to go with a ram mount but I have always enjoyed your product. The spring failures made me just step away for a bit.

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - 12 minutes ago

    We don't see hardly any failure with this mount so I am a little surprised you had a few of them that did that. How old is it?

    Visitor - 11 minutes ago

    The original was bought in 2018, had another failure in 2019 and it was replaced under warranty. Then it was sitting in my desk after that 2019 trip and saw it exploded just sitting there. I didn't even bother to try to warranty it again since it's been so long.

    It was this product though: https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/mob-armor-mob-x-universal-tablet-holder-mob-x-bk/_/R-MOBAR-MOB-X-BK

    I guess it's been discontinued but the base seems like it's similar to that one.

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - 7 minutes ago

    yes we have not had that for a while now. I have not had the issue with the newer one.

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - 6 minutes ago

    https://www.mobarmor.com/shop/tab-mount-magnetic-129352?category=4#attr=

    Visitor - a minute ago

    Alright, I do think if a machined aluminum is in the future though I would rather wait for that.

    Solve-it Companies, Sherry Moore - now

    I understand!

    I actually have the Ram mount rail system onto my dash, I’m pretty happy with it. I’d like to get a shorter arm for my iPad mount. Seems to wobble a bit.. here’s a pic with my baofeng mount on instead of iPad mini mount.

    I think last time they wanted me to send back the old one when I got a replacement. I gave pieces of it to a buddy of mine and trashed the rest already. I did keep all the magnetic shields, I have 3 now so that will help me later when I get the machined aluminum one.
