I think Ford would be well-served to do a universal setup in the Expedition. Every Expedition comes spec’d with buckets and then design an optional jump seat that can be removed easily and spec’d as an option or bought as a post-purchase part. Would streamline their production and make buying/selling an Expedition much easier as you don’t have to find “captains” or a “bench”. They’re all designed the same with the only difference being an available part from your dealer if it doesn’t have it already.The middle seat is removable, many have done so here. I believe it's just four bolts and it's out. Use the search function to look up the threads where others have asked the question and found out how to remove it.
