Just installed the 67Designs iPhone rail mount.

Needless to say I haven't driven it much only 191 miles :blush:

But, one thing regarding install though - you definitely need a stubby screwdriver cuz the windshield is right up there on that dash. I had to drill a couple of holes and my drill wouldn't fit so I had to use my impact wrench and then use a ratchet screwdriver to tighten those screws cuz I don't have a stubby screwdriver set. Now, I have an excuse to buy a stubby screwdriver set LOL

I actually folded down my windshield to do this...

Lies, actually I loosened the bolts and I held the windshield open as I made the holes and tightened everything.

Finally got around to installing the DV8 offroad hood lock down holds and removed the stock clamps from the hood. I like the look of it and it is pretty solid and should eliminate all hood flutter

Nice JT!

Do the headlight guards affect the headlight beams at all? Did you notice any impact to lighting after you installed? Thanks.

No, the headlight guards don't affect the lighting - those LED lights are like flame throwers :)
