    I've got a '96 regular cab auto 4x4 and want to make it more comfortable for 2 people and a dog in the cab. Do other models/configurations of the same generations have a bench that i might be able to swap out my bucket seats for? The center concel is just taking up room and i wouldnt need any middle leg room cause my dog would sit there, is there any possibilities for what i'm trying to do?

    Yes, a 60/40 bench seat will bolt right in. I actually have one in oak sitting in my basement. I swapped it out of my 97 a few years ago for bucket seats. If you're interested let me know and I'll post up some pics.

    Hey O-Dubs, if this works better, no problem. It looks like Mac2118 is a lot closer to you than I am. Just let me know.
    Thanks
