originally shopped for a bench for the seating capacity right up until I sat in the buckets. couldn't pass 'em up when I started thinking about driving from FL-CA-FL this summer.

Being a sports car guy originally, I prefer bucket seats. I do, however, have the bench seats in my truck. With the center console down though I love my bench seats just fine

I have a bench seat because the neither my wife or the dog will sit in the back with the kids but would have preferred the console shift, so when either the wife or dog leaves I will get bucket seats.

I have the buckets and console like that combination. I also like the shifter in the console.

Thus why I have a bench and not a console. The console is just another obstacle in the game of love.

Got the bench and am much more comfortable with it vs. the big console. When I test drove a truck with a console I was banging my right knee with every bump in the road, plus the "boys" were really cramped with the narrow knee spread. But, if the console was scalloped back to make about 3 to 4 inches more knee room on the drivers side I'd love to have one for the shifter location.

I have the bench right now. I test drove another Ram with buckets and the center console and liked it. The truck I traded in had buckets with a console and it was more convenient. Although you do have more room with the bench seats, I still prefer the buckets and the center console.

I agree with Will. Bench seat. Cuz you can get your girlfriend sitting closer. And that console always hurt my lower back (or hers)
I'll stop there. Gotta keep it G rated

I have the bench. After hearing about the issues with the leather and ventilation system in the seats, the bench seemed like it was a no brainer.
