Product review: Show Chrome Passenger Armrests

Recently purchased and installed Show Chrome passenger armrests. A big shout out to Wingstuff yet again for great service.

The armrest are perfect, soft and the color almost matches the Russell Day Long seat. I may send them in to get recovered this winter. As you can see from the pic, there is another armrest installed. I can’t remember the name but it’s the pie shape looking ones. They are very nice but like many others, just too short. With the two combined, it makes for a solid continuous surface for the arm. To open the trunk, the two different armrest will touch a hair so we just move the armrests to the inside just a few inches and open the trunk. I am writing this because I searched to see if the two different armrests can be combined and found nothing anywhere.

The install was rather easy after figuring out which pieces were right and left. A simple sticker on the pieces would have been nice. The instructions are nothing short of terrible. The photocopy instructions were fine to read but the black and white pics were useless. I had to go online to see a clear image of the pics. There are two separate pages for the two required steps and they need to clarify which page to start on first so you are not taking things apart like I did.

Overall I’d rate this a 4.9 out of 5 stars based on the crappy instructions.

My wing is a 2020. They do make it for the 18 model although Wingstuff doesn’t carry it. The base of it is a little different because of the shorter grab handles. If you look on YouTube, most installs and product reviews are of the 18 model.
I used a variety of different parts to make it work. I believe the main clamp is called a monster clamp in the size of small if I recall that attaches to the grab handle. Hope the pics help.
