I prefer the bench. It gives the cab a more open feeling and allows room for another passenger. Plus, you don't really lose any storage space with the under-seat compartment and the flip-down console armrest.

Bench seat for me, cause after I bought the truck the arm rest came out and the custom ported speaker box went in. I love those two 10's in between the driver and passenger seats love me some bass every now and then. I couldn't have done it with a console, so that's my opinion.

Bench in my 2010 CC. I have a Yukon XL as well but with 4 kids, friends etc it is nice to have the extra seat if I am in the Ram and need to fit more passengers, which for our lifestyle is often.
Im curious as to why some say the bench is not comfortable for long seat time vs bucket? I have seat time 4-5 hours a day in my Ram for work mostly and find it VERY comfortable. JMO

I got the bench. Pointless for me to buy a truck to haul all the quads if their wasn't room for all the riders.

I prefer the centre console and bucket seats for comfort/armrest as well as looks. I also prefer having the shifter in the console rather than on the steering column...it looks so classy. And who wants a second rider shoved close beside the driver on a bench seat?? We take long drives and that's why we got the crew cab...lots of room back there for additional passengers.

I ordered, a little over a week ago, a 2013 Ram 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab with the bench seats. I like the look of the center console with the bucket seats better, but I like the feel of the openness down below (for my right leg) with the bench seats. There is also the added bonus of having another potential seating position with the bench seat. Yet, I'm not sure how much that's actually going to get used in my truck. I do wish the bench seat arm rest had the embossed Ram head on it. That is one sharp looking detail.

Default Center console

That was one of the must haves for me. I had a 2005 ram with the bench seat which was comfortable, but the buckets are nice.
