Default was about to trade the 11sport in today and had an idea

Problem is I love almost everything about this truck.. I however hate the center console so much I was sitting at the ford dealer today looking at a new F150.

I had an idea though that I gotta run by you smarter folks than myself. If Dodge makes the tree shift for some and the floor shift for others, couldn't you have somebody just move the shifter and get rid of that giant center console? Could probably use that space between the seats for a nice speaker box or something where I'd actually have leg room beside the drivers seat if it's possible.

you can convert the shifter to either way, console or column. I am sure someone would jump at the opportunity to trade shifters with you.

Yes you can swap them. And most people prefer what you have so like he said above it should be easy for you to find someone to swap with.

OR...if you really want a new truck...wait for the 13s with the 8-speed and the rotary knob shifter on the center stack!

Wow man, the center console is that bad that it made you want to trade up for an F150?!!!! Come on bud! You can come up with something custom and creative to get rid of the center console. That way you can post pics and say, "Man I love everything about my Ram"!

Now your talking my language BradZ, yeah I got the column shifter so I could rip out that giant center console and plant my custom ported sub box. 2 W3v3 JL's 10's down fire action, love me some loud music every now and then. I'm sure someone will trade, but Man hang on to that Ram!! It won't let you down!!

yup, Woulda been either my 3rd or 4th F150, I'm not too sure. Problem was the packages I liked had the consoles I didnt like too. Raptor and FX4. On mine, I liked it when I test drove it, but any rides longer than 10mins or so I hate the thing to the point where I debate trying to kick it out of there or something. It's insanely huge.

Can't relaly think of any good ideas being as it appears to be one piece from the dash back to the seats/armrest. I'm gonna give dodge a call tomorrow and see about changing it out.

Which would eliminate the other issue I have. I haven't upgraded the stereo because every box I find requires me to lose my flat fold storage under my back seats. And I like that feature a lot
