This is super minor and I like it either way and I'm sure once I buy an Overland I will end up loving the thick steering wheel.
As for the wood though, they are great. Love the feel of it.

I read somewhere on the internet that the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a known as a "Man Lexus"...hence the thickness of the steering wheel.LMAO

This is my first partial wood steering wheel and I like it so far. Time will tell though since I live in Arizona and summer is right around the corner. Hopefully the sun shades will keep it from getting too hot to touch.

I enjoy my wife's Overland's Wood Steering Wheel, but only because the Jeep is what I consider a "slow moving vehicle." No insult intended, but if I was whipping the wheel around as much as I do in my Acura TL, it would get annoying. But the Jeep is more of a cruiser, and therefore, is easier to sit back and enjoy the niceties of it instead of driving "balls-out" all the time.
