Add a armrest to the console.
What it does:
The console is not quite high enough or soft enough to rest your arm on it. This armrest makes a soft pad for your arm while driving.
I bought this console armrest and storage bin:
It has this extra storage area which is nice (you can't have enough storage area in the Jeep):
Unfortunately, when I set it on top of my console to see how it worked I quickly realized that it sits way to high. My right arm would be way higher than my left arm when driving, so I decided to modify it to remove the storage box and only use the bracket and cushioned door. First, unscrew the hinge for the top door:
Remove all of the hardware:
Unscrew the hardware and cut the straps:
Remove all of the hardware from the bottom of the storage box to free the bracket:
There's a plastic storage tray inside of the top that is held in place by glue on the edges - remove it:
I took the bracket and top to the Jeep and adjusted the top until it had the best feel for my arm. I then used 6 angle brackets and screws to hold it in place and glued the entire setup with JB Weld (because the center part where I screwed in the screws did not feel very thick or strong):
Glued in place and I used a Sharpie to tone down the Quadratec emblem:
I may have a use for these parts:
Not sure if I'll have a need for these parts:
Mounted in place - positioned just right:
