Steering wheel peeling

My steering wheel is starting to peel at the top where I tend to keep my hand when driving. My question is where is the best place to buy a new or used steering wheel??? My interior is the medium stone color with all the controls, cruise, stereo, and fan. Here is a old pic before it started peeling and with my edge programmer.....lol

For a new steering wheel, I'd try TascaParts.com. If you want a used one, Ebay or a junk yard. A cheaper option might just be to get your steering wheel recovered.

if you are still in your 36/36,000 its covered under warranty....i had mine replaced...for a black leather one instead of the stone,,, it has held up great with zero signs of wear...

you bring up an interested point.. but my king ranch leather wrapped steering wheel is horrible.. it falls apart quick if you keep your hand at the top.. and thats my favorite place to put my hand when driving.. so i'm always catching myself and moving my hand somewhere else on the wheel as to not mess up the leather on my wheel.. thats my only gripe

If you all are into woodgrain/leather steering wheels, you might check out a guy named Bob Mansmith (rjmansmith@aol.com). He does custom steering wheels with woodgrain inserts. He did one for me in my 04 because I always drive with my hand at the top of the wheel as well. I was afraid I would wear my leather off and it would get ratty looking. A kind member on this forum sold me a used worn out wheel to send his as a core so I could keep my original wheel, in case I decided to sell my truck and somebody didn't care for the woodgrain.

I also like the woodgrain because I know I can get in my truck with my hands a little dirty and grab the wheel and not stain it up. Just wipe it down with a armorall wipe and call it good. On my wheel, he matched my factory woodgrain and leather color pretty dang close, and it had to be because I'm super picky. It's got woodgrain at the top and bottom. (I'll get a pic up later for ya if you'd like).

I know I asked him about a friend of mine's 08 Lariat who is having the same problem as the OP. But the way the 08+ wheels are, he can only put woodgrain on the top.

Note- he hand stictches his wheels, so they are not exactly 'sewing machine' tight. But he does quality work with good materials. I heard he did a few guys King Ranch wheels as well, and they seem happy with them,

Hope this helps!

One more thing- I think he does numerous different patterns: woodgrain, carbon fiber, plain colors, etc. For you guys with the sportier trucks that want something a little more contemporary instead of old fashioned!
