These newfangled prissy pickups aren't right.

That is all.

I agree....I had to have my dealer search and get in my GMC Canyon with a bench seat....sorry, bucket seats aren't right in a pick-up....

A truck ain't a truck unless it has 18 wheels.

My 90 GMC stepside was all truck AND it had very nice buckets. Sitting in that thing for 6 hours pulling jet skis to Lake Havasu after a long workweek was the reason.

Bench seat BLOW for long hauling.

For me, anyway. But it still wasn't a Toyota.

I have precisely 2 useful seats out of 4 in my car. Aint no fuckin goin on in a firebird It could happen in a truck with buckets, but it aint right. gotta be able to have ur girl hip to hip.

Proud owner of a 1966 F-100. She has vinyl bench seat and a one piece rubber floor mat.

Well, I must be a pussy then.

I like my buckets in my 05 F-150 Supercrew. I used to think that I had to have a split bench seat, but after my 00 Chevy with buckets, my preference was Buckets in my Ford.

I especially like the shifter on the floor of my new Ford. The power seats are also real nice. I like being able to lean on the counsel with my right arm. It is just more comfortable for me.

Besides, I'm married; I'd rather she sit on her own seat than in my lap, when I'm trying to drive.

Stop buying that furnin' crap and you'll have no problem gettin' a bench seat. But I'll take the 40/20/40 bench in my Dodge CTD over a straight bench. Try riding in one when the driver is 5'3" and your 6'3" your knees in your chin ain't no fun.

Try finding a work truck . I have not been able to find a manual transmission 3/4 ton with a rubber floor mat. Salesman took me right to a king ranch when I said a work truck.

Thats the big problem...I remember when I was a kid...trucks were truck, not tricked out cars that look like a truck.

I want a truck to haul things, and to be able to get in with muddy/dirty/snowy/wet boots and not care that I am going to ruin the damn carpet.

In my mind a pickup should have rubber floors, bench seats (60/40 ok), no foofoo crap.

I wanted rubber floor and bench seats on my Canyon, best I could do without a special order was the bench seat...but its got carpet....

The first thing I did when I bought my CTD last year was buy "slush" mats that cover the foot well area. Just pull them out and hose 'em down.

Pffttt....

My 06 crew cab King Ranch F250 4X4 is more truck than most.........

I always had the 60/40 before, but now that I've had this one for a few months.....I like the seats in it. (King Ranch only comes with the captain seat. It does have the bench seat in the back though)

PLUS......it looks damned good, and I look good in it.

Yeah I know, the first one they got for me had that but I wanted the bench in the back so the dealer traded another dealer for the one I wanted.

I humbly dissagree. A truck hails it's payload in a bed, what you are refering to is most likely a tractor and trailer. Personally I can not think of any 18 wheeled trucks.

Stick Shifts And Safety Belts Lyrics


Stickshifts and safetybelts,
Bucket seats have all got to go.
When we're driving in the 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.
But when we're driving in my Malibu,
It's easy to get right next to you.
I say, "Baby, scoot over, please."
And then she's right there next to me.
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 a lot of good cars are Japanese.
But when we're driving far,
I need my baby,
I need my baby next to me.

Well, stickshifts and safetybelts,
Bucket seats have all got to go.
When we're driving in the 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.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 10:35:55 AM EDT
I love my bucket seats. Hell, I'd of got the self heating ones that massage my butt and lower back if they had them at the time. Besides I don't want the passenger close enough to fiddle with my DVD player or GPS.

As far as putting the moves on my honey in the truck... heck with that, I can afford a hotel room if I'm away from home!

Bench seats are for poor people who can't afford a truck with real seats, and for young people who don't know any better.

My dad's got a bench seat in his 97 Chevy. In his 95 Chevy he had buckets and console. I like the bench seat better, cause in a regular cab, where will you sit when you aren't driving when you have to carry groceries, and/or laundry, and you have a damn console in the way?

bucket seats are for dudes with ugly girlfriends, and guys who watch Beaches

I drive with a bench so my girl can sit next to me and my dog can hang his head out the window.

It's a man thing.

When I was searching for CC 4x4 F350s last year Corning Ford had them like that. Their '06s listed don't have the carpet delete like last year's models did. To find one like that in stock you have to find a large dealer in farming or ranching country. But any Ford dealer can order it. Or if you want a lariat with rubber mats have the dealer switch out the carpet for rubber mats. Any dealer that won't do this doesn't want to sell you a truck. Tell the sales person that it is what it will take to make a sale. I mean they're not flying off the show room floors are they?

Grown-up men don't have girlfriends. Kids do.

I have to say, in general, I am against the pussification of anything I hold dear....pick-up trucks being amonst said things.


However, I'm pretty fond of the barcaloungers Dodge puts in their trucks.
