Overland - Prefer Leather to Wood on top portion of steering wheel

I'm not sure if this is a plausible mod without it ending up looking trailer park.

I don't like the wooden top portion on the Overland steering wheel; would much rather it been full leather.

Has anyone put a leather wrap over the wood that compliments the existing leather with the white stitching?

Also, would such a mod cause problems for the heated steering wheel feature....

Sorry, no clue but I feel for you, not sure what that wood is supposed to do there on a 4x4.
I could go on about the chrome accents inside and out, that champagne color center stack instead of black or silver, faux wood...
The only variant I like is the SRT, why don't they make them all look nice is beyond me, I guess they tailor to a lot of different people. I may just be a Laredo guy who happens to drive a Limited :-)

Re: Overland - Prefer Leather to Wood on top portion of steering wheel

I love my half wood steering wheel. One of the first things I noticed when I looked at the interior. It's not slippery like the bottom half and I can get a good grip. I must be getting old....

The wood looks classy and the colour is modern so it's just the feel of it that throws me off.

My wife commented that her wedding/engagement rings spin on her fingers so she'll have to watch out that she doesn't scratch the wood portion of the wheel.

I like that she thinks about that....most women wouldn't care.

You could always trade with someone that has a full leather wheel.
