    Very simple, I have the wood looking one and the thing I like about it is the backside of the wheel has thoes finger grooves going all the way around the backside of the wheel and makes for great grip while off roading and the palms strart to sweat!![​IMG]

    Cool thing about them is you can get the security system for $100 more. The wheel detaches and you lock a cap on the column. Great if you run topless.

    I've got a black one with like chrome spokes. Very small, like a dragster steering wheel. As I initially saw it (bought it with the truck) I would never have thought it would be ok to go with it. But now I do like it very much.

    Put a grant on mine. Real simple. Only one modification. Had to do a little bit of filing down the plastic adaptor in which the horn plug goes thru. Just refer to the original adaptor when you take it off for the length. Have a a silver aluminum GT matches awsome with billet aluminum cluster dash

    I have the Black, GT Euro style one. I also have the removable hub that cost $100 more. I run a topless and this is a perfect way to prevent theives from taking it.

    One thing to think about. If you are in a state that requires "safety inspections" an aftermarket wheel may not fly. When I was stationed in Virginia, I had a car flunked because the wheel was smaller than stock. It's a stupid law, but it's something to check into.

    I love my Grant wheel ! It's much better than the stock manhole cover-sized one. And more comfortable too !The next post has a couple pics of mine. It's a challenger with brushed aluminium spokes and black outter grip.

    Love the steering wheel! Looks great.

    i had a guy try to sell me a $125 billet steering wheel...as I thought about it there would be nothing worse to hit than a billet steering wheel...also he had to get a different one because there was no horn on it! So i am glad I didn't buy it.
