YJ Steering wheel replacement???

I am wanting to replace my old steering wheel with a nice wheel.

What are the good wheels to get and what will fit?

Thanks

pretty much anything made by Grant will fit..... you have to buy the grant adapter for your vehicle and pretty much any Grant wheel (and possibly a couple other brands) will bolt to that adapter.

edit to add... this is the adapter (install kit) you need:
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/gr...gler/year/1995

then any number of Grant wheels will easily bolt right on, with the possible exception of their "signature series" which I believe is a separate install kit, but not 100% positive on that

I got a Grant steering wheel out of a local junk yard and put it in my Jeep. Works great and love that it's so much smaller than the factory sized wheel.

Budget??? Well I am not made of money that's for sure.... I am looking at the grant wheels and some of them are outrageously high.....

Any Pics of wheels out there I can get an idea for my YJ?

well if you want to stay on a tight budget, how about recovering the stock wheel in leather
