    I need an arm rest. Someone wrote that there was a guy that had some or made them or something like that. Is he around, still?
    My favorite chicky is looking for a pass side cup holder too.
    Ideas?

    Pat,
    There are some pics and info on a custom dual cupholder bracket that attaches to the lid of the center console. Search the archives.

    Steve Laird used to sell the arm rests but I don't think he sells them any more. He may still have a few. Search the archives.

    Again the Armrest ??? ???

    Can't you use the nice rest in the center of your rig? Or is your arm too short? I use my armrest on top of my coolbox very comfortable.

    I don't need any armrest. :D

    Mike, No, I WANT an arm rest. If I wanted a cooler, Id get a cooler. They belong in the back seat anyway.
    I'll get pulled over with a cooler... I'm sure of it! Luck-Irish and all that...

    It's not that my arm is too short, it's the rest of me is too long. The armrest, along with the leather seat leg room is definate proof that LCs are still designed and made in Japan. When I had the stock armrest i looked like I was doin' tha gangsta lean all of the time.

    The gangsta lean is cool though Gumby. I am even considering lowering my armrest to be cooler than I already am. ::)

    I don't think so that you are taller than me. Okay, the legroom is really short but you can lower your seat and adjust your steering wheel. But what is your problem with the stock armrest. It is neither too low nor too short or too far away. It is just perfect. It is nice big not such a small thing like most custom made armrests. Is yours too low?? Or what is the problem???

    I disagree. The stock armrest is too low and too far away. Mine is not. My custom armrest is higher and wider than the stock. My arm rests comfortably without my having to lean to the right. I also have giant adjustable cupholders. 8)

    Maybe my stock armrest is higher because of the Cooler Box and not too far away. For me it is very comfortable and I don't have to lean to any side.

    But I think people are different and so my condition will not apply to everybody. BTW, I have four cupholders in my rig and I use only one.

    My only problem is there is no factory armrest on my console , we aren't all so (un)fortunate to have leather which has the armrest. US models w/cloth interior don't have the "armrest" ;)

    Yeah, I too am curious about the "stock" armrest. I thought the cubby lid is the only factory arm rest. But now I get the feeling that there's an actual arm rest separate from the cubby lid. Maybe I'm just reading the posts incorrectly!

    As far as I know the cubby lid is the only factory armrest offered in the US. As far as custom lids go it would save a lot of bandwidth if you did a search and checked out the armrest pics in other threads rather than folks posting them again.
