Which trim have wood steering wheel?

I want to buy new GC, trade in my Lexus GX. I spent 2 hours last weekend with rookie sales guy. I found test driving lower trim GCs I really missed the wood steering wheel. He said no problem, just get one of the more expensive trims. I decided granite color, wood steering wheel, V8, and black front grill. Ready to buy. But I seemed to be learning with him. He kept running out to lot to look at different trims to see what they had since he didn't know. Turns out Overland has bright chrome grill. High Altitude doesn't come in dark grey/granite. We couldn't figure it out and web site does not discuss. I finally left.

Help please?

The WOOD/LEATHER WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL (SCW) is standard on Overlands and Summits and not available on other trims (the High Altitude is an Overland). You are going to have to compromise or have the dealer make some adjustments, changing parts, or do it yourself. Jeep does OK with giving you a variety of options, but its not la carte .

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

Does this still hold true?

I am looking for a 2019 High Altitude in all black as well, but from what I am being told, they also did away with the partial wood steering wheel, and went to an all leather steering wheel on the High Altitude. They tell me I can get it partial wood steering wheel on an Overland, but that comes with all the chrome as well that I do not want.

Sounds like there were some changes for 2019.

From what I can tell, all steering wheels are the same dimensions. But if you were to swap one out, do you think the heater is different in the two steering wheels? Or would there be any heater programming issues? I have a dealership looking into it for me, but wanted your input.

Dealer is quoting about $1300 to swap out steering wheel on a new 2019 High Altitude with a wood/leather wheel.
