Leather on steering wheel
 
Has anyone experienced the leather on the steering wheel peeling or flaking off on the top where your hand would rest? I hate to ask but is this normal???

Mines flaking too. It is known for our Jeeps to do this. I'm going to order a new Steering Wheel when I have the chance.

I always get a black wheel cover from walmart. They are SUPER tight(pain to get on) but they do a really good job and feels good.

They all do it. It's a normal issue.

So if I slurge on a new wheel how do I keep it from happening? I mean do you guys with newer Jeeps have this problem as well? Is their a recall for it?

Nope.. thats just from wear... even the rubber ones do it.

Just have to get a cover for it.. or that replaced. Ima bet a cover will be lots cheaper.

You guy's need to relax when you drive. :lol: No "death grip" and the leather might last longer.

I've heard people get this replaced under warranty so check that out before buying anything.

Ya mine is doing this too....I guess its understandable for 5 years worth of wear on it but still its kind of annoying. Has anyone replaced theirs? How much did it cost and how hard was it to do it?

I was thinking of maybe replacing mine....

I always use a steering wheel cover, they protect the wheel and keep the rubber/leather from degrading due to friction and oils in your skin.
