The Limited model has an optional luxury package that includes the heated steering wheel without the wood grain of the Overland. Should be a direct swap for the wood wheel.

I had planned to go that route because I don't care for wood steering wheels either, but I passed when we had to order without any final pricing details. In the end I ended up paying a lot less than I thought and wished I had ordered with the package option.

I wish I had bought the model with heated steering wheel.

Is this something I can add on?

Good pair of leather gloves from Macy or Lord & Taylor will do job to protect your hands fine $25 to $50 top.

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

If I was King of Canada I would make it law that all cars had to have heated steering wheels. I love mine.

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

It's funny how many people make fun of me when they find out that I have the heated steering wheel feature on the WK. However every time I take someone with me when it's cold and I turn it on and they feel it they all instantly take the stand of "I wish my car had that."

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

^ So true. I thought the heated wheel was more of a gimmick and did not even use it for the first 3 weeks of ownership but now that I've used it in the cold it's a really nice comfort feature!

I swapped from a woodgrain overland wheel to the black heated limited wheel in case anyone else is looking to do something similar there is a bunch of info in this thread:

My overland wheel is still on ebay for a cheap price - cheaper than all other vendors and is in perfect shape! Just an FYI
