I'm not sure how to remove the Steering Wheel on a Jeep because I've never done it.

BUT YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU PULL THE AIRBAG FUSES OUT BEFORE YOU START PLAYING WITH IT! OTHERWISE, YOU MIGHT GET AN UNEXPECTED SURPRISE.

There are two airbag fuses behind the glove box and both have to be removed as they are both backup for each other. Neither protects a particular air bag, both work for both air bags. Disconnect the battery too. Give the air bag circuit/capacitors 10-15 minutes to discharge before touching anything.
