    I think it might be the Tenacious but it's been so long I can't remember.

    Just another reminder, looking for bucket seats to swap for my 02 SR5 grey bench seats. Located in Portland but willing to travel. Lmk. Thanks. smartwentfast@gmail.com. Color doesn’t really matter.

    Old thread but worthy of comment because the photo here is of a bucket seat with a center console, not a bench seat.

    I've had many vehicles with bench seats but would never give up the comfort and security of my good Tundra bucket seats for a bench seat. A bench seat was always a cheaper option. And, FWIW, sex is much better in the camper shell on a full size bed. Any questions?

    Bench seat fan here. It’s basically A bucket on the driver side with a 2/3 for the passenger side, and a sweet arm rest organizer

    That's the storage compartment that folds down in the middle of a bench seat truck.

    Correct. I don't have a bucket seat.

    Oh, thanks for the correction, I had never seen that version. Google images reveal the bigger picture. It's a bucket seat design built into a bench as it has roll padding in the seat and back. I can see how that might be desirable.

    I don’t know about the bucket seat center console but I like how the folding console on the bench has slots to hold your tape cassettes in the back. Because you know we always have tape cassettes to play. :rofl:

    The only downside is when the rear of access cab is filled with stuff when going on a trip, the center console won’t always fold down with stuff against it in the back.

    I am looking for this exact bench seat where the entire middle seat folds. I have the bench where just the console on the middle seat folds down. Does anyone have one of these for sale or know what this specific design is called so that I can refine my search? Thanks in advance!
