Looks good. I was wondering why Honda decided to go with the first gen style Honda CR-V armrests in the new Passport. I remember how uncomfortable they were in the CR-V. I like your mod. Looks like you can tolerate the longer road traveled now. :)

Cool, put that in my list of mods. I have been thinking about how I could modify on my own and this looks like a better way Than I could come up with lol. My other thought was to design a extension of that would sit on top of the center console raising it up to a comfortable level with a hinged lid. Anyone know of anything like that out there?
thanks

My first thoughts, was they were too narrow as well, but after 14 months of ownership, I actually don't use the arm rest that much. I guess everyone is different and if you were "an armrest kinda person" those big wide ones would fit the bill. I had two thoughts on the matter: (1) get a Sheepskin sleeve that fits over the existing armrest, it would certainly be more comfortable then the stock ones. (2) Get an over-sized ( 1-2" wider) Sheepskin sleeve and put some foam in it, that would it would be slightly bigger and be soft as well..

See my homemade sleeve pics posted earlier today. I kinda like this but it's only stuffed with 4 layers of cardboard glued together and topped with a piece of upholstery foam. If I continue to like this, I will replace the cardboard with, I'm thinking, a piece of a thin, stiff, kitchen cutting board and maybe even cover it with pleather instead of stretch fabric. Or I suppose I could always order the JJ products.

It looks fine Anita and if it's comfy - I'd keep it or add the few extra enhancements you mentioned.
