Awesome! Do you happen to have any pics of how you connected the flat stock metal piece that you fabricated to the seat frame? Did this require any welding special tools?

My parents used to have a vacation house in San Felipe. I used to ride there once in a while. I miss visiting there. Hopefully once I get my CRF450R set up for Baja, I can go back down again.

right behind the nut that holds the top of seat to the bottom of the seat there is a divit that is easy to drill through I bolted the flat stock to that with a nut and bolt I kept the mount right up against the nut and cut the mount at an angle so it set into seat frame to keep it from moving back and forth. Yes I love San Felipe good people good riding look forward to being there permanently in a couple years

I love your design and install. You have bested the engineers to fix something that really bothers me about the van. But, I think these same engineers that cheated (most) of us out of an armrest did so because they put an airbag or two in the passenger seat. I say that because the seat covers I bought talk about it. Do you or anyone else know more about that?

Where did you get the armrest? Is it an exact match for the drivers one? If you bought it from Ram why not just buy the passenger side one?
Thanks!

Great design Chris!

I have the armrest but have not got around to mounting it. I was going to mount it on a sandwich plate on the inside same as drivers side, but now I have an alternative mounting possibility, thanks for the inspiration!

Chris and others the OEM passenger side arm rest is available through your dealer and other parts suppliers. My dealer gave me one for free because they felt the armrest should have come with my build order but was omitted at the factory.

Cheers,

Dave

David,

The airbags are only on the door side on both passenger and driver side seats. You can just undo the sipper on the Upholstery and have a look see.

I don't think it has been resolved as to why some PM get a passenger armrest and some don't. My dealer could not resolve the question and felt it was a factory omission. They gave me a passenger side armrest at no charge but, declined to install it as there is no mounting plate to receive it.

Cheers,

Dave
