Have any pics? And why'd you do this mod? Is your steering wheel leather kaput? It seems very cool but I'm not sure how I'd like the feel of it on my hands.

Just snapped this one. My steering wheel is in fine shape but I was using this cheapo faux leather wrap that I bought from pep boys that made the wheel feel thicker and I got used to it. I got sick of looking at the cheesed out wheel cover and I saw this on another forum and figured I'd try it out. I'd imagine you could get real intricate with it and make nice bumps and whatnot but I went for a real, real basic wrap. I went with desert camo so it would match my two tone interior. Good cheap mod imo. (Got the 150ft cord for 12.99 from a local army supply surplus shop)



EDIT: tip: if you cut the ends they will fray easy. Use a lighter and a rag to melt the ends to make a nice solid end.

Ripped out my NSS earlier when I decided it was a food idea to hit a somewhat soft looking mud hole that turned out to be not so much mud but more clay...now she's stuck downtown. Gonna get her on the trailer in the morning and get to working on it.

Does anyone know if the NSS bypass trick will work on the WJ? I know it works on xj's and zj's but no clue if it works on mine.

RockAuto just sent me a 5% off code, (I know they're a million of them out there, but figured it couldn't hurt to share.

Finaly got some labour done today, not much but a good start, while chill'n in the sunshine.

Washed and bathed again.

Oil and filter change, Valvoline MST synpower 5W-30, and offcourse a WIX filter (religious).

Also got my Magnaflow exhaust tip cleaned and polished down, after a serious salt and polution attack durring winter. Looks good now imo.
