We actually saw two: one in NV and another in CA. Didn't get pics of the second one though because we were going by too fast and there was traffic. Needless to say, there must be a lot of barefooted people out there. There was even a set of rollerblades in one of them!

Not sure. A seat "upgrade" to grand Prix seats would work to they come in vinyl/pleather also for 500 bucks you could get 2 front racing suspension seats from PRP in leather or vinyl!

I've got that pair of summit racing seats with covers and adjustable rails! They have slots for harnesses too! The seat covers are vinyl in black!

Anyone know if there's a way to install an aftermarket steering wheel with no airbag in it on a TJ steering column, and have it work right? I've got a nice grant wheel, but it doesn't have an install kit for TJs because of the airbag. They won't make one either because its against federal law to disable/tamper with the airbag. Which is another question. How to do it without having the dang airbag light on all the time?!

They only have install kits for up to 95 wrangler. Anyone know for certain what changes were made to the steering column? I don't mind not having the airbag, so that's not an issue for me. I don't want to replace the column either.

Now to wait for the ball joints to replace the ones I trashed, then I can put the axle back together.

Between 95 and 97? Ever taken a look at a YJ column?
