    check out ebay. I bought my tilt for 50 bucks and it was from a truck. There are a couple on there now. Just search
    "chevy truck" and they should show up.

    As long as it is the big round column, the car columns are almost exactly the same as the truck columns. Only diff is that the main electrical plug points the wrong way, and you can easily reroute it to work. I've installed several car columns in trucks...

    BTW, even the square housings (which that may be, not sure) can be made to work by triming the plastic column casing where it hits at the dash. Takes a little work to make it look "not butchered" but I've used them...
