Worn Steering Wheel

A lot superdutys I've seen have a worn or discoloring steering wheel if it hasn't been covered. I have found replacements on ebay and such but they are $250 and up. Has anybody found a cheaper way to restore theirs?

I called the local wrecker - said they've got tons of them in Black. If course my truck I need one for is a Lariat - But if it means not having a cheesedick cover on it and not enduring the hideousness of the stock wheel being torn I will give the $50 for one. He even said he'd trade me a good black airbag for my tan one so it wouldn't cost me any additional $$$. Seems easy enough to replace - plan on doing it in the next week or so as time permits.

Yeah I meant to mention mine is Lariat in the Med. Parchment I believe. I assume that link was to refinished or new wheels?

Been that way since he started the site many moons ago. His email is on the home page. He quoted me something $180.

He started out on eBay (trucknvanman) and expanded to a website. He's still on eBay though.

interesting, I am currently having that guy build me a steering wheel for my ex. hope to be hearing from him anytime now telling me to give him money. I am getting a carbon fiber with tan leather wheel, I can't wait!

the reason his site hasn't changed is because he does the wheels on the side after work and on the weekends.

Does he need your wheel first and then your down till you get it back, or can he send you a new one with a core exchange?

nope, he charges a $100 core charge, which he refunds when he gets a good useable core wheel.
