I have something for you guys to chew on. I went to my local Suzuki dealer for the armrest, and he refused to sell it to me! He said it wouldn't fit a 2001 Tracker b/c the seats are different from a 2000 and that he was doing me a favor since I couldn't return it. Have you heard of this before? He got his information from Suzuki America. He said the 2001 requires two armrests, one for each seat (which they don't sell since it comes standard now on the Grand Vitara). I convinced him (barely) to open the box and it sure looks like it would fit. I saw an "A" and "B" scheme on the instructions depending on the model and design of the center console, but the A scheme (with the drilling on the one-piece console) seems to be the correct one for the Tracker. Any info before I buy the armrest online would be appreciated.

Does anyone have information on when the Tracker ZR2 is going to be available? A dealer in the Phoenix area mentioned March of 2001. This seems like a long time from now. Has anyone had a chance to actually try one out? If so, I'd be very interested in initial assessment.

Just to let everyone know. I have installed a Suzuki armrest on my new 2001 Tracker LT. The armrest matches and works perfectly. So if anyone is thinking of this accessorie go for it.

Thanks for the info, Dave. Did you have to drill holes in the console to attach the armrest over the large hole behind the cupholders, or does the LT have the removable compartment with a cover in that back spot, a la GV?

I had drill holes no big deal. Only took 15min to install. Very straight forward and easy to do.

I have been reading this forum since I ordered my wife's 2001 black Zr2 Tracker in September. I have emailed Corporate Headquarters and the manufacturing plant in Canada to find out when production starts... They tell me to ask my dealer. Well He has no clue and everyone I have talked with has the same answer. Another Chevy dealer told me they are only making 9% of the 2001 Trackers Zr2's, and they would probably be special orders only. Ant info would help. Great Forum by the way. My decision to buy was swayed here.

I ordered my ZR2 in October from a dealer in Northern Virginia. I was told to expect 6 to 8 weeks for delivery(I'm hoping to stay with in the rebate time frame). Of course, last week two different dealerships in the area got 4 ZR2's in stock after a had placed my order.

My Dealer called me last night and said my Black 2001 Tracker ZR2 w/ roof rack, cd player and ABS brakes (including all other standard items) has a build date of December 11, 2000!!!
I can't wait.
I will let you know.

Installed the armrest today. I was initially hesitant about the price, but the armrest might be the single most cherished option on my Tracker. If not, it's a close second to my cd player. The Austrian manufacturing definitely makes for high quality. It's much sturdier than the armrest I installed on my old '89 Prelude. The installation took a little longer than planned because I didn't have a 9mm drill bit. Otherwise, no worries.
On the flipside, the cargo tray cover is a definite pass...
