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.

you need an adapter kit. they sell them all over hte place. it will let you bolt a sparco or momo or something onto your column

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

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.
