Overland Steering Wheel - Swap it Out

I am either purchasing an Overland or a Limited within the next week.

Question: I really dislike the Wooden Steering Wheel, as does my wife. Can I order a limited steering wheel as a part and swap it, or would this cause other issues?

Would a dealer ever be willing to do the Swap for me?

Re: Overland Steering Wheel - Swap it Out

If you are from the North you will want the wood on the steering wheel! The Heated wheel is best on the wood! I wouldn't change it for anything. It also matches the interior really well!

Just my thoughts

Re: Overland Steering Wheel - Swap it Out

I have to agree.....at the first look the wheel seemed a little fat and a throwback to the 50's. Now....I like the looks of it. Still.....I have yet to drive one with the heated wood...but I have my mind "right" about it now. I gotta belvieve that heated wheel will be the real deal here in January.

Isn't the limited wheel heated as well or am I wrong?

Re: Overland Steering Wheel - Swap it Out

When you get the luxury group II, the steering wheel on the Limited IS heated (no wood).

I don't know why you couldn't order one and swap it out. I'd talk to the dealer about it.

Re: Overland Steering Wheel - Swap it Out

really depends on which interior color you have. If dark frost, none of the limiteds have this color. dash and doors are black on top
