Right? I've got a stick shift so I use my console as a armrest more than anything really lol

Console and armrest looks good!!


Hey did you have to trim the ARM100 out back where it wraps up and meets the padded arm rest? I had to trim it with my grinder 'cause it was like it was too tall. However, no one else who's installed the ARM100 reports needing to do what I did. Just curious if you had to.

I ended up painting the screws black and mounting a set of AA MiniMag mounts on the underside and of course, the 3AAA MiniMag LED. Can post pics if you want them.

Nope, I didn't have to trim it at all.
I might do a mount under it at some point.
I have some ideas but pics of what you did would be interesting.

Haven't redone them yet but I will probably just sand and do another coat of krylon. I am thinking about going with satin this time instead of the semi gloss

The pic makes it look worse, but yeah, I do.
Doesn't bother me too much as I'm not off road as much anymore.
Gonna do it when it get new tires sometime this year so they can do the alignment at the same time.

BOOM!





I've been really really really bad at getting a newer picture....this is like from 2007 but it gets the point across. Talking of the ARM100 and mounting AA MiniMag mounts...

That looks good
Right now I just have one an extra CCW mag holder Velcro-ed to the back of the passenger seat. I thought about attaching it under the armrest.

Anyone considering this swap should do it. WELL worth the time and $$

Soldered and heat shrink tubing.
