Default '03 FX4 LevelII Center Console Arm Rest

I've read some other threads where peeps were doing this same repair, but most don't mention both parts I need.



I need both the bottom and the top pieces. I'd love to replace both with metal... cause this design is crap. I'm not a big guy, but with the weight that gets put on this thing, it should be metal, IMO.

It was broke when I got the truck, but has now reached the point of being a pain. I'm not sure which models have the same setup, but figured someone in here could probably spew that info out in seconds.

Links? Idears?

Thanks!

They make repair kits that are metal. Look for them on amazon or ebay, not a bad price, and they work well

Yea, this happens to all the Rangers that have accessible flip up center consoles too. The lid in my old '00 Ranger had pretty much disintegrated. My 03 has a perfect lid, but i'm waiting for the day it breaks. I love to rest my arm on it like it's designed to do, but you can just feel the cheapness.

Thanks guys. I found the part on rockauto.com for $40.99 before shipping. It's just the bottom metal plate tho, not the top. I might need to see if I can find it at some of our local yards.
