I was wondering what you had because when I was truck shopping it was hard to find one with a bench seat. My theory was that everybody wanted the bench seat hence why none could be found, only captains chairs. But apparently I am one of only 3 people on this site that actually has seats in their truck

not all at once now

Have had both but greatly prefer the captain's chairs. The only drawback that I have had is the lid on the console. I have tried different things for months but short of leaving it open nothing can stop it from rattling!

Why Captains though? You get the same seats with a skinny little armrest, the worst part is that your woman can't slide over next to you because there is a console in the way
