Exclamation Center console armrest replacement

I was driving along the other day and thought to my self... i want a peice of gum. so i lifted the armrest open the center console and rumaged around for my pack...

unfortunately as i closed the console and the armrest the damned thing snapped off...

now i recently purchased this truck from a ford dealership used so i expected this kinda thing to happen, but for the life of me i can not find a website where i can purchase a replacement.

so if any of you fellow ranger owners could help me out id be much obliged

TL;DR i need a new center console armrest where can i purchase one



-Matt

depending on which lid you have, rock auto sells a nice, metal replacement piece that will keep them from breaking. but it only works on the shorty console arm rests that have a plastic bottom on it. most of the time, the armrest itself if a molded vinyl. post up a pic of both sides and we'll be able to give you a better idea.

i've used one of those brackets and it's top notch. it's well worth the money. that's the only repair for an arm rest like that that i've ever seen. i guess you could fab something up, but it'll probably come out to be about the same cost.

I ended up breaking mine just lifting it. Problem is the back hinge is right up against a 12" sub box. The stress just snapped the plastic hinge right off. Now the rattling is driving me crazy....ha....driving......
