Default Convert from buckets to bench

I couldn't find anything on this using the search feature, and I think this is the right place to post it. If its not please correct me.

The one thing I sometimes regret about my truck is that it doesn't have the front bench seat. I'm still not sure I'd go through with it, and obviously it wouldn't be until after the warranty is up, but is it possible to change from the center console to a front bench? If so, what would be involved?

If it helps, I have the 8.4A radio, and I think having the rotary shifter that I have would probably make it simpler than if I had the console shifter. Also I have the CD player in the compartment under the armrest.

I'm not necessarily sure I want to do it yet, just exploring my options.

Man, if everyone that wants a console wasnt so far away, lol. Ive been looking to do this swap as well. Havent found a local donor truck yet. I was dead set on tha trim level and color I wanted when I purchased mine and the only two around both had consoles and I was ready to buy.
