I'm getting licensed at the end of October. I ordered a couple Baofeng UV 9R plus radios. Does anyone have suggestions on where to mount the charging cradles in the Jeep?
I don't know about the 9R, but I have a bunch of the 5R ones, and they make a replacement battery door without a battery, but with a 12v plug. I just plug it in, and hang it on an aftermarket phone mount that's to the right of the factory stereo. I keep a couple of charged batteries in a plastic bag in the glove box in case I ever need to go mobile.
If the 9R cradle is anything like the one for the 5R (they might be exactly the same) a radio sitting in the cradle while bouncing offroad would just jump out. That's kind of why I did mine the way I did. Well, that plus the mounting conundrum you are having.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.
I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
