Width of center consoles

I came across a good deal on suspension seats and was thinking of ordering a set to replace my stained bench seat. I'm tired of sliding around on corners. The only thing I would lose is the ability to seat three in the front, which I have done twice since I got the truck a year and a half ago.

But then I saw that they have a center console/fold up seat on later superdutys, which while a tight fit with the shifter would solve that problem.

The stock bench is 58" wide, I could go about 1-2" wider without hitting the doors. The seats are 21" wide. That would give me 16-18" of space. How wide is the fold up seat? Are there any other options?

I have a late 99 with the jump seat you are talking about, if I understand you correctly. It might be easier to find a replacement setup complete in a junkyard or try to find someone who is parting out their truck on craigslist. If you want I'll try to remember to measure the width of my jump seat this evening for ya.

I have been looking for a 60/40 seat for a while now but found that they are all overpriced and my normal pull a part yard never seems to get any superduty stuff in. This would be cheaper, be brand new seats, and I do trust suspension seats more in a crash. I would have to make brackets but that is no big deal.

Another option is to convert to a cop style center console. It would get rid of the third person seat but would let me get all the radios and switch panel off the dash. Or I could just build a custom unit, but that was a pain the last time I did it.

I was happy to find in my searches that broncograveyard has replacement shifter boots, my was destroyed the the PO and makes the truck very loud

Suspension seats do not use sheet metal pan on the bottom, instead they have a tubular frame with webbing or cord forming the support of the seat. They are typically much more comfortable, safer and since they are designed for racing and offroad use they hug your body better.

Mastercraft, PRP and Corbeau are all major players in the game.
