how about an aftermarket steering wheel? BTW if you are for sure gonna drive with out an air bag make sure you cut the loop on the seat belt.
Your rig will not pass emissions if the air bag light is on. If you take out the light but it will still not pass because they check for it to light up and then shut off.
Also i assume the thing behind the shifter is the module and the silver part being the sensor? I dont know though
