We're empty nesters so choosing console and buckets was easy decision. Our previous truck had console set up and I think there was only 3 or 4 times in 5 years where we could have used that 6th seat.

I looked at both. The driver and passenger seats are the same as stated previously, reguardless of configuration. While I loved the look of the center console with shifter, and some of the mods guys have done and posted pictures of on this forum with painted trim and changing shift knobs are amazing. Ultimately, I was thinking ahead about being able to pull a camper I may buy in the future. I wanted to be able to put my wife, all three daughters and my golden retriever "Elvis" in the same vehicle and go. The bench won out!

Bench guys if you ever want to go to console you can swap to console and can get the floor shifter to work

I went with the bench on purpose, even though I rarely have passengers. I'm 6'6, and the open space in front of the seat means I can put my knee there, makes it much more comfortable for me.

Console with buckets for me.

I think it looks better and I'm all about extra storage space. The days of my gal riding in the middle are long gone LOL

I prefer the bench, Its nice to have a little extra storage. I have only used that center seat a few times, but it really is nice to have especially in a regular cab.
