Sorry for the click-bait title, but I was hoping there were some ideas out there on how to add comfort to the armrest maybe something like this
https://www.americantrucks.com/snaprest ... uct_pics-0 maybe not as thick, that could cover the crack in the armrest and provide added comfort for long drives but also stay in place.

If I would do something I would just go for more padding and then upholster it. Something like that , while it may be good , like comfortable, it would look quite out of place and ugly....

When I had an explorer , for which I could not find a center piece that wasn't torn, I bought reupholstering material and padding and made the center explorer hand rest quite comfortable.

Something I considered in the past was to disassemble the door panel, remove the factory soft-touch material, add a small layer of foam, and then re-upholster and reassemble the door. Problem is, I worry that the door panel would creak a lot more after all that molestation, may not necessarily go back together given it's heat-staked together, and finding the right replacement material to cover the armrest that matches the upper panel.

I've taken apart a center console lid before and it has a good amount of padding in it. I don't have a spare right now (need to do a yard run) but was thinking of macgyver-ing something together that would add the padding i need and cover up the crack. Just an idea
