The Chevrolet Silverado comes with a jump seat between the two front seats that is both a center console as well as a slim seat. This is convenient to have in your vehicle, but other models of Silverado have dedicated center consoles that hold more accessories. If you want to remove the jump seat and replace it with a dedicated center console or just remove it to keep the space open, you can do so in about 15 minutes.
