    After a long trip yesterday, it was apparent that I'd really like to have an arm rest from my right arm. Did anyone make one up or does anyone sell arm rest for the driver? How about using the arm rest that slips in the window and somehow attaching that to the cubby instead?

    Taller, wider console cover is the answer there.

    I've got one of Steve Laird's arm rests. My wife didn't go for it, so I'll sell it to whomever wants one.

    I'm surprised you don't like it. I think it's pretty fawking cool. ONly prob is it keeps all those 23 year old chicks from leaning over. :flipoff2:

    I"d be curious about Steve's armrest. Give me some details/pics/etc.. I got go home to Chicago from Reno next friday and wouldn't mind an armrest before hitting the road. Otherwise I'll find something to stuff in the space between the seat and the console.

    Thanks.

    I do think it's pretty cool, but my wife drives the rig more than I do.

    Hey Matt...unfortunatley I have sold all of them...I wish I was still manufacturing them as they were made of Toyota leather and looked pretty good. Sorry!

    Steve's sold out, but Cruiserman has a gray one for sale. :D

    And C-man only wants a small 10 0% markup for the collectible factor, now that it's become rare and unobtainable! :p

    Looks good. I can't get www.landcruiser.com to come up. Cman, can you take some pics and send them to me? I'll have to make something up if Steve isn't planning on making more of these things.

    Thanks.

    Will do. It's buried in the garage somewhere. Steve did a nice job on it.

    I gotta have one?

    Despite the bomber engineering of the crusiers, I don't understand why the idea of a decent cup holder and proper arm rests were so foreign to those same engineers less than 10yrs ago???? :mad:

    Found the armrest. It comes with cover and instructions, and it's grey leather.
