Show me your aftermarket steering wheel!

I couldn't resist, 2XS. I couldn't resist.

So... everyone show me your aftermarket steering wheels. I was going to go with a wood rimmed Grant like this one, but open to other suggestions for my old one that the previous owner wrapped in leather straps (which is deteriorating pretty fast).

Here's what I'm thinking:



Polished/mahogany Collector's Edition 14.5 GRT1170

id prolly do one of these (i have power steering, so a smaller wheel works well):

had one on an 88 Camaro that worked and felt nice.

Now, instead of fixing my steering, im going to get a new wheel and pretend its not gonna break on the freeway....

Pic is the passenger tre, flipped with a custom bushing welded in place, working on:

Just need to drill the knuckles, install the Gofor it bushings, weld, shorten the drag, and align.

I like the one, as pictured above, the Grant Marine in 13" , Though both are nice. My reason for one over the other is purely cosmetic, I think the black works better for my motif.

Ibuildembig - That's an awesome wheel! Love the thin spokes.

I like the classics myself. Mine is 11 1/2 dia with a 3" dish. Plus, the classics cost a lot less.

Here's what I have in my YJ...
This is just a pic I found on Photobucket. It's the same steering wheel that I have, I just haven't taken a pic of mine...
It's nothing fancy, I just like it better than the stocker.
