Changing the steering wheel?

I traded my Sportbike and picked up an older YJ (88). I'd had a TJ before this one, however, I wanted something less tech and one that I can expand and customize way easier. No computers, not even fuel injection.. haha

My question is this, I don't like the stock steering wheel they have in it. When looking at new steering wheels, can I just replace it with any that I like? Or is there a specific bolt pattern or anything? I love there are no airbags to worry about in this thing..

I'm sure this won't be the only question as I switch from the coils to leafs, but hey, I'm loving the square headlight world so far.

Go to "summitracing.com" and do a search for "steering wheels." They have plenty made by Grant and also the adapter kits if you need them. The prices run from $80- $300, depending on what you want.

Take care,

I got the Grant adapteer kit at Checker/Oreilly for about $20. I got a Grant Challenger series wheel for $40 there too.

Crappy pic, but you get the idea. Grant Classic wheel - $30, adapter kit - @20, Jeep horn button - $11.

Where did you find that horn button? I've looked all over and haven't found one.

I think Grants are the way to go. Good selection and reasonably priced.

Older picture...red carpet and rubber boot gone.
