    I know this is a strange question but how long is a truck steering column? From the firewall to the steering wheel or overall length. I know cars and trucks run different lengths. This one was given to him and he has no idea on what it is out of. Any help is appreciated

    these were taking off a 78 non tilt manual column and matched the 77 non tilt auto column next to it

    from steering wheel to the top of the piece at the firewall is 34"
    from the steering wheel to the bottom of the piece at the firewall is 36.5"
    from the steering box to the steering wheel is 59.5"
    and it's 39.5" to the splines at the end of the column where it just pass the firewall.
    All these were taking to th eouter edge of the stock steering wheel.
    Hope this helps
