Redid my steering wheel. what do you guys think ?

Postby candymancan » Fri Jan 26, 2018 3:10 pm

So i ordered a wheel skin for my steering wheel. I cut ny old one off as it was torn on top but i managed to save the foam padding so i reused that.

I think it looks amazing.. but the puncture holes for the threading were too far apart on the bottom so there is a little gap showing i couldnt make it suoer tight to pull the leather either because they made the holes too close to the edging.

Thats the only thing im uoset about.. depending on how much it annoys me i might return it for another.

Here are some pics

Thanks. I ordered one for my friend and my two ZJs.

Here it is on the ZJ.. The Zj steering wheel you cant get the wheel skin inside the wheel spoke like on the wagoneer but it still looks really good and no more big gaps that wheel covers cause.

These wheel skins are only 44$ too.. Really cheap and only takes less than an hour to stitch on and on our FSJs its identical to the ones put on from factory as you can see.. Well worth the money id recomend everyone do it lol
