15" yes. And that's a good price for it also.

I like the look of both those wheel, but need something just a bit smaller in diameter. The grant seems to be the only thing that I can find. Just wondering in your search if you came across other options?

Both of those Renegade wheels are great, but the Jeep horn button may take the cake (but then again, the hex heads are a good look).

Yours steering wheel is on the wrong side so it doesn't count, but I like it!

I have that as well on a spare steering wheel I found on Craigslist while in Texas years ago and purchased for cheap. I sometimes take that horn button off and replace the almighty great one, that has the Allen head bolts, with the one that came originally with those steering wheels.

Hoss

His name was Brian Winter. Grew up with him in the same small town we lived in since birth and we were the best of friends. Tragically he died at the age of 25 when he fell out of his 1979 CJ-5 while sitting in the passenger side as another friend, who was driving, missed the exit and swerved to take the off ramp on Interstate 80. Suffered head trauma and died 3 days later in the hospital. We were all heading to go camping that tragic weekend and of course being young and carefree, nobody wore seat belts back then....

So, after close to year, his parents called me and asked if I knew anybody who wanted to buy Brian's 79 CJ-5 Renegade before they put it up for sale. The Jeep was pretty beat up as it was, lots of rust coming through but I always liked the steering wheel and asked if I could trade it for mine. His Dad and I took it off and made the swap and I have had it on ever since. That was 1986 and ever since then, when I get behind that Steering wheel to take my CJ for a drive, I think of Brian and put my seat belt on.

I had one of those but someone tried to remove the allen bolts... Needless to say, it's not a g.o.a.t. anymore.
But I do have the other button also. ....

Mine was cracked and falling apart so I printed one up on my 3D printer.
