I prefer the Bucket seats. I rest my leg on the console, and its so much easier having that extra storage next to you. I also prefer the floor shifter.

If they did not make bench seat trucks alot of people would not get them.. I for one am one. I have a wife and 3 kids. if we want to take any of the kids friends or anyone else with us I would not be able to with out that middle seat up front. its perfect for a family of 4 or 5. thank you dodge for the 20 seat upfront.

How does the shifting work? I know you can tip the trans from gear to gear with the console mounted setup.

same with the column mount shifter there is a little button on it with +/- it works great. around town I usually use 4th to 5th depending on the speed limit.

I grew up in East Texas, that is where the wife is supposed to sit. One more reason I was glad to get the bench.

Yankee, you have the only reason I would have considered a center console. I'm still trying to figure out where I want my CB to go.
