For shooting from a car window with a 100-400 5.6 in places like the Kruger NP, nothing is more versatile than a double bean bag. This is the model my wife and I use

You raise the window glass an inch or two and it fits very snugly and securely with a bag on either side. You can even use it on a 3/4 raised window though it will not hold the lens that steady like this.

They sit on our car doors all day long and only come in, when a dusty vehicle comes
by!

I really love my Apex BeanBag.
You can mount a head on it, its very solid and stable, can be locked to the car door handle and used on the ground as well.

Check it out!

The Apex bag works well with my 400 5.6 and 600 4.0. Haven't seen the need to attach a ball head. It seems to cradle the 600 more securely than my BLUBB. I can stick the lens out the window, drape my arm over it and slowly cruise back country roads without worry. I tried the pipe foam route with the 400 and decided it didn't provide the steadiness for slower shutter speeds because the lens doesn't nestle in. What's nice about the bag is that you can also use it on the roof or hood in place of dragging out a tripod. The Black Lab ate my last down vest so can't say much about that approach.
