steering wheel
 
Does anyone know if the wrangler and cherokee steering wheel are the same.
My wrangler steering wheel is bad, and I found a good deal on a used like
new cherokee steering wheel. Both are same year.

my steering wheel is going bad too.. the wrapping is falling off so everytime im done driving my hands have black debris all over them..

The leather is coming off. And something black gets on your hands when you drive it.
I put one of those cheap covers on it, but the wive doesn't like it.

Sheesh, just install a better quality lace on leather steering wheel cover. They look great and add a little padding over the OE wheel. I've had an aftermarket lace on steering wheel cover on my TJ for about 12 years now and it's just now starting to show some wear. Under $20 nearly anywhere... just avoid the cheap vinyl steering wheel covers that look awful and also make your hands sweat.

I used one from Wheel skins . It look like it OE and it tightened up the loose feel that the wheel had . Just do like the instructions say , the tighter the better when installing it .

try to find a rubi steering wheel it's got a chrome jeep logo on it. the first time i got into a rubi i saw that and just had to have one. lol now i went out and bought a rubi and i never get to drive it. my wife says it's hers. if we put both of them side by side you could tell i had intentions of driving the j/k around. she told me.
