Question Steering wheels...interchangeable?

Searched, didn't find the exact answer.

Factory SRT8 or Commander steering wheel interchangeable with the G/C?

I would like an all Black wheel instead of the two-tone.

Even more desirable (to me) would be the 3-spoke 2011 wheel.

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

I switched my 06 Grand Cherokee airbag and steering wheel to an 06 SRT8 wheel and airbag. I would bet the later years are interchangable as well. No idea if the 2011 wheel/bag is interchangable

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

he has a 2010...so a later model wheel and airbag should be a direct swap.

FYI-for those with the 05-07 looking to swap wheels....the commander uses the same black wheel and airbag as the SRT. The only difference is the black carbon fiber tecture on the SRT wheel. In my conversion...I actually bought an SRT wheel and then used a black commander airbag.

Okay cool, thanks.

So I did a bit of research on SteveWhite's site, and found the Commander wheel listed, w/leather & orderable by color. But what is w & w/o remote?? It's only listed as an option for the 2010 wheel, not 2009 or earlier. (it's $47 more for "with")

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

Does anyone know if a 2008 wood/leather GC wheel will fit a 2005 grand cherokee? My friend just bought one off ebay and wants me to help him install it. The airbag and controls are way off.

He is thinking he can just take off the menu controls and put the 2005 airbag on top of the new wheel.

Has anyone done this? Does anyone know if he had to purchase the 2008+ airbag will that work with the 2005 systems?

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

well...theres a few problems going from a 2005 wheel and airbag to a 2008.

1-Im not sure the airbag plugs are the same

2-the cruisecontrols for the 08+ are not on the wheel like the 05-07

3-the steering wheel from the 08 will bolt on...but the 2 problems above will have to be fixed somehow

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

Those were my thoughts.

Kinda strange there isn't more wheels available for the 05-2010 models. You pretty much are stuck with getting a new one from a dealer.

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

Startech and Vmaxx both do a steering wheel for the WK.


The Vmaxx exists in two versions, an all leather at around 750 and the wood/leather at around 1,150 through www.autoxclusive.com



and the non SRT Version




I do not have a picture of the startech mounted but here is the leather/alcantara wheel. Those interested in the startech should try through Chad at www.blackopsautoworks.com and http://jeepgarage.org/member.php?u=2784




You still need to use your airbag module so the startech might not fir all tastes once mounted. This is what I had done to mine but it really did not look right until I also did the cluster and nav bezels as well.





However, for those prices you start to find some specialized companies that will customize your wheel with more color and material options. Like this one:

Re: Steering wheels...interchangeable?

Sorry to revive this post, but it's for information purposes.
This is what I did to mine. I bought a used Startech steering wheel from Germany (in great almost new condition) and a used commander airbag.
Last picture is from a commander (great condition, almost new steering wheel that came with the airbag) and the original airbag.
