Unhappy Regular Cab WOES!!!

Hey guys! Disregard my user name which is CrewcabChris because I now have a 2005 f-250 regular cab. I had a 2002 4 dr a couple years ago for fun, but spent too much money on repairs and lost interest in diesels. now that I need a diesel to pull a 5th wheel, i wish i still had it. So here is the question... How do you make the regular cab more comfortable? Its a xl truck with a vinyl bench seat. I am 6"4 and 290 lbs. Its really not as bad when you get used to it, but it still has no lumbar supprt, you slide all over the place, no where to rest your arms or lean on. Here's another question. How do you maxamize storage? I am looking into buying a bench seat console that goes in the middle seat. it gives you some storage and also a place to rest your arm. So my question again. How do you make the space more supportive and comfortable. Also any storage ideas would be great. Thanks. Truck doesnt have power locks, windows, a cd player, or cruise control. LOL Pretty basic but the price makes up for it!!

I'd pull the 40/20/40 out of an xlt if it were me. I had a ranger with the vinyl seats and if I had kept it longer than I did, I would have done just that.

Gives you the armrest storage, lubar support, more comforable seats. easier access to behind the seat for storage, and they just look better

Put in seats from a higher trim truck, like an XLT or something. They should bolt right in.

I think that is gonna be your best bet. You can have lumbar support, and a center console.

this might be a stupid question, but some split benches have a middle seat with a flip down console right? and the driver and passenger seats have arm rests too? I dont know why but i cant remember right. LOL
