Seering wheel wraps/covers

What do you guys use to cover your steering wheel when the leather gets worn? Seems to be a common problem with these trucks, mine is in bad shape from the previous owner. Looking for suggestions, i'd rather not replace the wheel even though that seems like a popular way to go.

I've used "Wheelskins" on several cars and trucks. Very nice product, between $40 and $50. Google it if you want more information. The last few that I have bought were from the Wheelskins Outlet on Ebay.

Thanks Bubba, I've actually been to the wheelskins site twice, but couldn't pull the trigger on a $50-$75 wheel cover, I was looking for something a little less expensive. That might be the route I have to take though if I can't find one that will fit from my local parts store.

I just run a 'leather' cover from walmart. It's now been on there for 18 months and is starting to fall apart at the seams. But what else can you expect from a $6 wheel cover? It still looks ok for now but I will need a replacement by summer.

You could do this if it's not already wood grained.
Custom woodgrain steering wheel installed (PICS)...

Wheelskins are nice but the dye doesn't hold up. I think it was about a year after getting a tan one that it started to show brown where I hold the wheel.

Just today I put one from Wheelskins on. It was time consuming but it turned out very nice. I wish I would have done it sooner.

Any of you guys with the Wheelskins have pictures? Are these the kind you have to sew up the inside part?
