    You mean the goose neck swings back and forth? Mine is real stiff, doesn't move unless you really put some force into it

    i would do something similar but move the oem screen to the area behind the steering wheel and then put your touchscreen where the oem is.

    I need one of these, but don't want the sway. Do you remember the guys username on ebay, I searched and didn't find any.

    I almost bought the Parts express one, but i'm putting a 10.2 Xenarc on it and afraid it will swing around, did you come up with a fix for the 19 inch one??

    Thanks

    This is the one http://cgi.ebay.com/24-Gooseneck-Mou...QQcmdZViewItem

    Ok, only problem is that if you want to tuck your wires into the loom, it's gonna be really hard. What i did to solve this is cut it open, take out the loom, put in a bigger loom that i got from microcenter for 4-8 bucks and put my lcd wires in there which looks much better IMHO.
    Again this one doesn't swing easily, you have to much alot of force into it.

    mine flexes at the mounting point. when you have 18 inches of a lever with a screen on the end of it, it sways on the bumps on the freeway.

    as for off road, i dunno usually i dont touch the damn thing and im moving all over the place too much to notice if the screen is.
