Overland Wheel on Limited?

Do you think the overland wheel would match ok on the limited trim? From these pictures it looks pretty good. Seems like a pretty good deal, I called the local dealer and they said it would be $750 from them.

Does the limited have the wood grain or the grey wood? I love the steering wheel in my Overland (probably one of my favorite features! )

Mine has the brown/gold wood grain, just by looking at the pictures it is a pretty close match.

isnt the type/color of wood used on the Overland trim and steering wheel different than the type of wood/color used on the Limited? the brochure says they are indeed different.

That looks like the same color of wood my limited. Maybe a little lighter on the overland. Cant tell for sure. $500 seems steep for a steeing wheel though.

I would recommend listing out the accessories you want for your Jeep and then see where this steering wheels falls in the list versus the money it costs. In the end, if you think it looks good then that is all it matters. If you can't decide if you should get it or not then I would recommend looking at the list and finding something that you definitely are sure you want to versus buying something you are still undecided on.

Good advice from getoutandplay. The heated part won't work if you don't already have that feature, so the question is, is that little piece of wood really worth $500 to you?

Nothing like warm, toasty mitts while driving around. I thought this feature was a bit silly until I tried it. Now it's spoiled me in the short time I've owned the vehicle.

Well the wood wheel is the only thing that I really wanted from the overland. $500 isn't that much for that wheel since most people pay $300-400 for fake reproduced wheels. Mine has the heated feature so it should be a direct swap.

I felt the exact same way. I thought to myself "who needs a heated steering wheel, that's stupid". The I started using it an it is really nice.

Here's a better deal for you.
