Default A place to rest my elbow?
I sure would like to be able to rest my arm and reach the steering wheel in this truck. I drove my friends new Dodge all day yesterday and can rest either elbow and easily reach the steering wheel. There is no way I can do this in the Raptor.

Are there any solutions? At this point I would screw something hideous looking to the door just to have an armrest that functioned. Something maybe softer than injection mold plastic would be nice...

Just seems like some really odd ergonomics in the cab, why is there so much space between the seats and the doors?

I've got a slightly used snaprest I'll sell you. Looks brand new, and unlike RDFT's it worked great! Really is exactly what you are looking for.

PM me if interested......
