Console or Bench ?
 
I saw quite the debate going on in another thread concerning centre console with buckets v.s. a bench seat so I decided to find out what everyone thinks. So which do you prefer, console or Bench ? and why ?

FYI, I prefer the console with buckets. It's one of the things I really liked during my test drive.

Now that's a loaded question. I'd prefer the buckets, but the needs of occasional six person seating won out over and I ended up with the bench.:LOL:

I spend hours at a time behind the wheel when i do a job, a short job from my place to Yuma Arizona & back, usually takes 7 to 8 hours, longer 1 day jobs can take 13 hours going to San Francisco/Oakland area & on occasion i turn around & drive all the way back home.
I couldn't do that sitting on a bench seat

Ya, I knew it would be. Interesting that the RT only comes with the console, two passengers only..... Much as I like to console I would have bought an RT if it came with a bench :doh:

Yea, I had to decide whether to make myself happy or meet all the family needs. And as for comfort the 40/20/40 seat with the power drivers seat is actually very comfortable on long trips.:smileup:

I thought long and hard about this. I was going to get bench because I could ride 6 people. I really liked the looks and needed space of a console. I decided to go with a console. The 2-5 times a year that I would need to ride 6 people made me think.."Heck they can drive their own car!" :smileup: Console is nice!

The only trucks I've ever owned had bench seats. Now both the old Ford and my new Ram have the center arm rest / storage so for me it has been very comfortable. Plus I enjoy having my baby seat next to me form time to time.

I've been searching for the center console for the 06-08 Ram's to put in my '07. I think its more practical. I rarely have 6 people in the truck.

I prefer a console with the Arm rests that flip down from the seat. However with the Rams i find few and far between that are equipped with the center console, and most have the flip down storage which actually works quite well for me.

I'm like GT in that I spend countless hours behind the wheel of my truck, I just couldn't imagine putting in the seat time I do with a bench. Plus with all the gadgets and junk I carry the extra storage the console offers is perfect for my needs.
