    Am I the only person who wishes trucks still came with split bench seats up front? I have no need for these massive center console like in the Raptor. I’d much prefer the option of a 60/40 bench like my old SRT10 had (still had center storage too). Then, those of us with 6-person families could use our truck for road trips instead of being forced to get a huge SUV or van (barf) with less room for luggage, gear, etc.

    To each one’s own, I guess. I love the bucket seats over the old bench style. And call me a pack rate, but I use my center consoles like they’re intended - with the OCD organizer, of course.

    I wouldn't want to give up the bolsters on the seats and I like the big center console to fit a radio, laptop, gun, small bazooka, children, and pack of ravenous chihuahuas as my EDC.

    I have a dog, nobody else loves me. So I actually prefer the extra storage space.

    My last two trucks had the 40/60 bench with a big center storage consul that flipped up for the 3rd seat when you needed it. In the combined 16 years I had those trucks, I used the middle seat once. So while I understand why others like it, I don’t miss it.

    My old Dodge had a standard cab. The flip down seat back/console thingy was nice as I could fit a third adult. The back seat in the SCREW holds three adults all by itself, so I wouldn't trade the front seats for anything.

    I think the massive center console is great. EDC fits there in the vault, which is all I need.
