I agree. It feels more open, and you lose leg room with the console. If I'm going on long drives I like to set the cruise and put my right leg up on the hump. Ideally, Dodge (or should I say Ram) should have offered the bench in leather from the factory. They are basically the same seats.

Well for me, you cant get a chrome bumpers and a console, and chrome is much
more important so I have what everyone calls a bench but if is really 2 buckets with a
center seat that is bolted direct and does not adjust.
so bench seats are actually buckets with a center seat.

No they don't. Laramie comes standard with leather, but it's not a "bench" seat. It has the center console. You cannot get leather from the factory for 6 person seating.

Wrong. St, slt, big horn/lone star, and laramie are the 4 trims that come with bench standard. Look it up on the ram site and there are members on here with bench laramies

You obviously know nothing about these trucks. You can get a slt or big horn/lone star with buckets and console. I'm pretty sure I know what my aunt has on her lots. Just even go on the ram site and you can build them with buckets and console

Here's a lonestar(Texas version of big horn) with buckets and console, http://www.bennyboyd.com/web/new/Ram...ition_id=10425

Here's more
http://www.bennyboyd.com/web/new/Ram...ition_id=10425
http://www.bennyboyd.com/web/new/Ram...ition_id=10425

Here's even a 2012, http://www.bennyboyd.com/web/new/Ram...ition_id=10425

Here's the ram website for you, http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/2011/ram.../conveniences/ . Floor mounted shifter(buckets with console) available on SLT

It is really hard for her to reach over the console, so I went with a bench!
