I found this KM Motors branded center console cover on Amazon and got it to protect the lid vinyl from my dog's nails. It's pretty thick and comfortable, but it does mean the work surface cannot entirely lay flat. It is easy enough to remove and reinstall, so I plan to remove it when I need the work surface. Overall pretty nice little interior mod and dresses up the XLT a bit IMO
The armrest in the center is now taller and plusher than the driver-side armrest. I wish they'd sell matching pads for the door armrests to bring some more comfort over there.
Pardon the dust - it's been raining a the truck is past due for a wash:
