Flaming River Steering Column in a YJ

So I'm about to get a new steering wheel and in the process I was planning on taking apart some of the stock steering column, cleaning it, painting/powder coating it so that it's all nice looking.

I was looking online to see if someone made a powder coated black billet tilt lever, ignition lock, and multi-function lever. If I couldn't find this, I would just paint the stock ones. I came across Flaming River and their really nice steering column replacements. My question, is it worth getting one of these? Has anyone else done it and was there any improvements over the stock?

If you're willing to drop the coin for one, then it's worth it. So to me personally it wouldn't be worth it, cause I'm too cheap to spend that kinda money on a column.

@panaceabeachbum, how much have you spent on everything? Also how much time is invested into this? Did you get the one that bolts up to the stock shaft?
