Just use USB extension brother as @rlc2020 mentioned. We are good as of this post as we just got back from Best Buy with one. Everything works front and rear.

And we just unwrapped harness and it reached to connect to console hookup, so you can ignore my email.

Big thanks to RLC2020 and Buzz. We in there!

***Big Note*** Unless you are swapping with someone....I bought my center console off eBay..So the carpet is NOT an issue since I had jump seat already. Expensive mistake as I figured I needed front carpets and had ordered through dealer already. #Yikes But I have listed my center jump seat with carpet for sale cheap (link below), and will have brand new front carpets to go with it for person buying it.

Great news Marky Mark! I sent you an email too.

To combine some of the part searches for those of wanting to do this and not swapping with someone.....You will need these few parts most likely:

Rear Console Bracket
68291165AA

Front Console Bracket
68291157AB

USB Extension to get power to USB's (link below or Best Buy should have it)

(2) upper front trim pieces (see pic of what it looks like before install)

6MA64TX7AB

Wow, magic happens here. I’m going to buy a Laramie with the center console and want to have a bench seat instead. Anyone interested in swapping with mine? :)
I have a Laramie with the bench and the center seat folds down to a console (ish). The hidden storage under that seat is great if you have a CCP. Check the local junk yards and you maybe able to score one on the cheap.

Hey there! I just purchased 2020 Limited with center console and looking to swap my console to bench seat. It’s a brand new condition with 12 miles on it all black. I’m looking for a good condition bench seat if you have just purchased your truck it’s even better but used is fine too as long as it’s pet and smoke free truck. I’m located in Portland, OR area but we can ship to each other, just let me know who is interested of swapping with me, thx

I have a bench seat i took out of my 2019 Big Horn. I took it out after driving about 750 miles. It is brand new. I am getting ready to put it on ebay in a couple of days. I had bought a console from a member here who shipped it to me. If your interested let me know. Asking $400

Hey guys for those who already swapped bench to console and back, did you keep all your original harnesses for consoles and benches as well? Because I have 2020 Limited with rear heated and vented seats and swapping with another guy who has Laramie without rear seats heat and vent option so just wondering if it will be easier to keep my original console harness and for him his original bench harness to make everything work like OEM...
