Hey Gang,
It has been a long while, happy thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all of the other holidays I have missed, LOL.

My 88 SWB's steering wheel is cracked and not so handsome looking. Before it gets torn apart I wanted to ask if any of you know of the interchangeability between GEN I and other generations. I searched for a nice wood wheel but a 16" diameter is not easy to find.

I might do a wrapping job, maybe nice leather, BUT before doing so I want to try another steering wheel.

Thanks guys.


88 red Montero with the Dakar Special Edition decals, 438,000 miles (As of 7/23/2012) some occational blue puffing but still strong and counting!!! I am going ppsshhh (turbo), Stay tuned =) ...

The Mitsu steering wheels share the same spline size between multiple models and eras. I have a Gen 1 leather Eclipse wheel in my Mighty Max.

I have an early Starion leather wheel with radio controls to be had reasonably, also the yucky grey wheel from an 88 Mighty Max, and a simple and elegant wheel in an 86 Ram 50 Royale.

Gen 3 has a wood wheel. Might be too smooth to look ok in a Gen 1.
