Crafted a 79' CJ Steering wheel for my 94' YJ
Took a 1979 CJ wheel, bent, found on eBay...
Straightened it with a 4x4 and mallet
Primed and painted flat black
Installed leather wrap
Found a mid 1960's center cap, cut the base of it down and made a bracket to hold it center on the wheel
Installed... and loving it!
Here is a video slideshow of the progress and final product. All together, $82 invested. Not too bad when you start pricing CJ steering wheels. I like these, the three hole style. Same like the ol' Dodge Chargers used to have.
