What would cause these cracks in a door?

I'm guessing the FJ door, arm rest is hollow there and someone hit it?
No idea how you could do this kind of damage, I was just wondering
if anyone had seen this happen before?

This isn't my vehicle, saw it on a car lot.

Lot of elbow pressure bearing down on it? A very heavy person?

Re: What would cause these cracks in a door?

My guess would be that someone was out wheeling, got stuck, and climbed out the window. Obviously someone very clumsy though... I've had to climb out my window a couple times but didn't damage the door.
Perhaps done by a person's knee.... or they stepped on it while it was open......

Suck it up... it's only -40

Toyota replaced mine on my 2007. My 2013 is a lot thicker. It was a problem on earlier models.
