Downside to Explorer Console!

The seat mod and Exploerer console are great until you have a girlfriend and she can't sit right next to you. That really sucks! For the first time since I put the console in I really miss my old bench seat!

Anybody else have this problem?

Not if you've got a gear shifter in the way! It jabs her in the side and she complains... alot.

There are ALOT more possibilities when you've got the bench seats though...

Stick shifts and safety belts
Bucket seats have all got to go
When I'm driving in my car
It makes my baby seem so far

I need you here with me
Not way over in a bucket seat
I need you to be here with me
not way over in a bucket seat

Well, all you extended cab guys have the room for all that, but standard cab sucks for ess eee exx with or without bench seats. So I put in the buckets, and a console. (I gotta get an explorer console though)
