I'm not old, honest...
In cab through the windshield or up front on the hood or brush bar?
Finally a useful response. :teehee: I won't have time for any experimentation. I have to mount it somewhere and live with it for the week at KOH.I have mounted mine on my roll cage, dash, and on the hood.
I like all of the views for different reasons. Best bet would be to do some experimenting before a run Jim to find out what you like best. Mostly for me it was trial and error. I usually just mount mine on the cowl or the dash. I personally like to see the front of the Jeep and what's in front of me.
I would mount it on my cowl. I would rather have a much more spread out view than have any possible restrictions from on the dash behind the windshield.Finally a useful response. :teehee: I won't have time for any experimentation. I have to mount it somewhere and live with it for the week at KOH.
If you had one choice and one choice only, where would you mount it?
I was going to suggest this as well.top center of your windshield tube, pointing down and forward (if you have the option of mounting it under the windshield tube that would be best...in my opinion).
Or the cowl.
We can still experiment some out there, mount it and replay the video to see if you like it
I agree about the first person view, thats why I think if there's a way to mount it under the windshield tube it may help with that since it would be closer to actual eye level of the driver, and still be high enough to have good break over views etc...I was going to suggest this as well.
I know you have a full cage, but if you run out at KOH with the top off (assuming you have a top), then I would mount it above the windshield. Your view would be great, but like trailrail said, angle it down a little. Have to have the front of your rig in the shot!
Problem with cowl, is you lose sight of the obstacle much quicker due to the hood covering it up in your approach. With having it mounted on your cage up top, you'll get a good view of everything.
I'm not a big fan of having the camera mounted that high though. When I watch the video that I have recorded, I don't particularly like how high it appears. That's why I would mount it on my cowl. Looks a little more first person.
Hope this helps.
