Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

To be honest, i think a bunch of guys on here, including myself would love to see a write up on your progress with pics. i doubt many would duplicate but, but i wouldnt be surprised if you motivated a couple guys to attempt it once they know it can be done.

Yes they are the same. As long as it's in good working condition (like from a mule vehicle) I may go for a used one. I just worry about used life saving devices you know. I want to know it's going to work if I ever need it to.

Cool! I'll document it and post up once completed.

---

Today I picked up a 2012 steering column from a Chrysler test mule.

Manual adjust, telescoping and tilting!

As we can see from my original column there is a steel plate that the column attaches to (pic below). This plate will have to be modified to adapt the new 2012 column. All measurements indicate this should not be an issue, but I may have to weld up a new plate, not sure yet.



Now some pics of the new column I took apart today.









If anyone out there with a WK2 or a new Durango can take a pic of what this (the splined shaft in the pic above) attaches to under the column (there should be an intermediate shaft then a U joint before it goes through the firewall to the top of the steering rack) that would be awesome.

FYI, becareful there are knee airbags down there.

I'll also be going to my local dealership tomorrow and checking out one of theirs.

As a bonus the steering column will not only be tilt but also telescoping. It also came with the steering wheel damper and bolt.

Now I have to take apart my 05 and see how it all is connected and I'll probably have to weld on some atachments to the 2012 column to allow for the left and right stalks to mount to. I will also have to check the clock spring mounting tabs.

Tear down of mine will be next week sometime.

So far so good, more to come tomorrow.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

I have a used airbag in my jeep, got it from a theft recovery srt8. Junkyard sent me the carfax before hand to show it wasnt wrecked. $125 shipped, im just saying it is a good option to keep costs down and still have a functional airbag

That sounds like the way to go! Looks like I can pick one up for 325 +shipping.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

dude 1000-1500 is way to wide of a range... the rules state you must be more specific than that
