Default ok, this drives me nuts...

Does anyone else find it stupid that Rangers (I believe FX4 Level II w/ Auto trans) with the center console and the floor mounted consolette. For a truck that only seat 2, why would you need 4 cup holders?? Another one is the 02's & 03's with a cup holder built into the armrest console. What's the point of having 3 when in order to fit 3 people in the truck, the armrest has to be UP, thus, putting the 3rd cup holder out of sight??

I think having 4 cupholders up front is very handy! Course I use them for more than just drinks to.

IT really drives you nuts? I have 4 in my truck and I wouldnt mind another 4. I use my cupholders to hold everything. Cell phone, usb drives, remote, power adapters, bluetooth headset, whatever I need. I love my cupholders!

Well, not really, lol. But kind of curious about it. I do like how the ones in the consolette have those sleeves that you can pull upwards to hold bigger cups in place.

This.

My truck came with 2 cup holders (not counting those in the rear) and they are always full with one is usually holding a bottle of water, the other my cell phone. I definitely wouldn't mind having more cupholders...

I only had 2 in my 05 so I found a console with the built in cupholders for 2 more.

I'd kill for more than 2 cup holders up front. You never have more than one drink per person (i.e. a milkshake and a soda each)?

I have 6 cup holders in my truck with 3 seats (took out a jump seat) and I make fun of it but I definitely love all the extra storage!

Oh yeah, I forgot about the 2 in back. Don't some trucks have them even if it doesn't have the jump seats?

I'm with everyone else here. My 02 has 5 total, and I utilize every one. Nothing like going to McDs and turning down the tray to hold 3 cups. They look at me crazy when I tell them I've got room to spare.

My 2010 only has the two which is attached to the front of the bench seat. I would like to find something that will fit into the accessory tray to give me two additional holders.
