steering wheel
#1
So I found my dream steering wheel. (Ok, not really a dream, but it is captivating, isn't it?!).  It is an 18" trucker steering wheel that comes with a hub made for a 1974-1995 GMC truck column. My column has the telescopic hub with the little latch lever to make it go up and down about 2". I am thinking that would be lost if I use their hub. The wheel is just over $350 with shipping and tax. Pricey but I am limited on selection. Would this work? I believe I have that type of column. Also I have welded in a bracket that supports the lower portion of the column since it had some in and out flex. Column is tight, but the factory mounting gave it too much flex. It is clamped at the column to allow removal if need be. Solid and tight now. Should I safely order this wheel? It is returnable but hate to go through the process....

I took a chance and ordered the steering wheel and hub. No issues on removing the old and installing the new. I am quite pleased with the size and feel. I can steer it with no power. I also supported the lower column and this thing is so nice and tight!

Nice! Looks to be a good ergonomic design promoting good hand position while driving.
