Wore through steering wheel leather

Other than the giant rubber covers or the older lace on covers does anybody have an idea of how to fix this? i got my 2006 F350 used and the leather cover at the top of the wheel is worn through. It is very annoying as It won't slide through your hand and looks pretty tacky.

Here is another option:
Custom woodgrain steering wheel installed (PICS)...
I sent the guy an email a few weeks ago from the address listed in the thread and he got right back to me. I haven't pulled the trigger yet on getting it done but there are a lot of guys here that are happy with his work. I have just had some other higher priorities come up. I bought my truck with a ****ty steering wheel and hate the covers too. It came with one already in place but I will be doing this soon.

Can you give some details on this please? Their website doesn't give any information, or at least it didn't for me.

Cost, how long it took, maybe some pics........?

Thanks, still trying to decide on a re wrap or the faux wood replacements.

Thanks

On the website, look here for pics of all the wheels that he's did ...

STEERING WHEELS

To get a quote, time estimate, etc, email Don Le @ info@Dallassteeringwheel.com Or call @ 469-449-7973.

For me ... the leather on my wheel was in real bad shape from sun damage. I wanted to keep the factory look; so, I sent mine in to be recovered. It was back to me in less than a week & looked factory new afterwards. My cost was $249. It's been two years since and the leather still looks new!

Here are some "inspection pics" that the company sent me before my wheel was shipped back:

I feel silly. I think when I checked the site earlier it was down or limited functionality wise. All I saw was the address and phone number of the company.

Your wheel looks good. I do think that I would rather have the leather re done than go with the wood replacement. I sent and email to the ebay guy and asked him about it but was told that all he does is the wood. I'll have to keep the Dallas company close because I think I am leaning more towards that direction right now. If I only had some extra cash laying around, right? Thanks for posting up the pics.

Dallas steering wheel quoted me $220 to recover a stock F150 steering wheel.

Would a stock Lincoln Navigator steering wheel work? I have one laying around that I've been wanting to install in my truck, but haven't had a chance to compare wiring with the stock F250 audio control steering wheel yet.

I ordered a new steering wheel from tousley, it was like 300 and some change...I didn't shop much into the recovered aspect, but I needed a lower seat cushion cover too, mines the harley edition so there wasn't really finding any used, or even recovers on ebay or something that would match the rest. I figured I got 150k out of this steering wheel, albeit climbing in with grubby hands from work, or those quick trips up to advance or wherever while elbow deep into a project...you can bet I'll be taking the extra 5 minutes to wash my hands now. Hopefully a new one will last longer if I don't tear it up. Seat cover (just the drivers side lower) was like 240 fwiw.

How do you go about removing and installing the steering wheel in these trucks? Did you have someone do it, or do you guys have experience with airbag equipped steering wheels? The leather on my king ranch wheel has been torn up since I bought the truck and I've been wanting a new one for a while. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet because of cost and the install.
