Steering Wheel Replacement

I have been considering this for some time. While I love the King Ranch leather on the seats, it's a pain on the steering wheel. No matter how much I try to keep it clean and conditioned, my hand always sticks to it. It's annoying!!!

I found a place that does factory wheels with - in my case the same Oxford Burl wood that my dash and door panels are. The wheel is real wood overlay and the same parchment color leather as my interior.

Before Picture:




After Picture:



I installed it myself, but I thought I was going to have kittens, once when taking the airbag off and it fell into my lap and the other time pulling the old wheel off. If you have any doubts about doing it yourself, take it to a pro!

I've had it on for about a week and a half now! It's been a hellava improvement.

The wheel is made by Alliance Technology and is factory. Actually, their work is a "Piece of Art"!!

They have different applications - go take a look!
