Need help with steering wheel mod

I have a real hardxx for the steering wheel that was on the '41 Willys. Love the look and I know it would be the perfect mod to continue my WWII theme. I found the exact wheel that I want for short money on this link.

Omix-ADA - 18031.03 - Steering Wheel 41-45 Willys Mb

My question is this. ....... Does anyone have any idea idea if I can mount this wheel onto my YJ using some kind of adapter or am I going to have to replace the entire steering column with a replica of the original? Or even if this doable at all? Thanks guys

Do a entire Willy's steering column. That would look sweet

The only difference I could see is the Willy's wheel haveing a smaller hole then the yj where it counts to the shaft. If that's the case I'm sure if you took it to a machine shop they could make it fit
