Armrest too short?

I'm on the tall side at 6'2" so my arms are long but does anyone else feel like their armrests are too short sometimes? I feel like I need an extra inch or two in order to have my elbow on there comfortably while driving. Anyone else run into this?
Is there an aftermarket solution to this?

Do you have a separate center console ?
I would think you could take the armrest off open it up and extend the mount piece then have it recovered.
Seems alot easier to swap out with the folding center seat/console , mine seems to offer plenty of support coming out close to the edge of the seat.
You , however , might have freakishly long monkey arms too ?? If you can adjust the passenger side mirror while driving there is probably no hope

Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

Sorry for the lack of detail..I have the center console/bin. I don't even think I sit that far back..it just seems a little short. But not by much!

Maybe find someone wanting swap the 40/20/40 setup then. I like it alot better but we also ride 6 occasionally so it is a must in this house.
