I ordered two replacement arm rest for my 69 c20.
They were sold as the arm rest pads.
They appear as though there should be something behind them in order to mount them.
Since my truck did not have the arm rest in the fist place, I don't know if there was a metal bracket or something between the door and the arm rest pad or if they just screw to the door.
Any thoughts?

Based on the 2 arm rest for the C-10 there is no bracket for them. The C-20 not so sure. Can you post pictures? That would help.

Does your door panels have the 2 holes located where the armrest would normally be? It sounds like your truck was not equipped for armrests.

The armrests were fastened to the door with two screws that went through punched holes in the door panel. The doors have should have two square holes to hold the 1/4-20 clip nuts which accept the screws.

You may want to pull the door panel to locate where to mount the armrest.

Here are a couple of pictures of my 71 door panels. These are stock arm rest. Two bolts hold them in place the arm rest has a metal backing on them.
Sorry drivers side isn't the greatest picture but you can see the holes for the arm rest. The door it self should have the nuts in place to hold it.

thanks, the pictures help.
I believe there is a template to drill the holes in the correct location.
My c20 did not have them in the first place but I wanted to be able to pull the door shut plus the arm rest is a small comfort item.
I plan on using the clips to secure the arm rest rather than just drilling a hole for the sheet metal screws that came with them.
