Quick Release steering wheel - Questions

Hey all,

With my full cage and seats its getting harder to get in and out of my jeep. I was gonna go to a smaller wheel but everybody says that will only make things worse on the trail.

I was looking in summit's mag this week and found a steering wheel quick release. I don't even know if this would work on a jeep or not. Any ideas? Suggestions?

Here is a link for the part i found.

I think the one you're looking at is the probably the weld on style. That means if you have a regular column you won't ever be able to get it apart to work on it. I've used the weld on style quick-release mount in several applications and have always liked it but I wouldn't put one on a regular steering column. That's the reason the other one is $100 is because it can be removed if necessary. Nickmil.

Are there any that are not weld on besides the grant one? Thanks.

BTT - I want to know also.

With my full cage and ever increasing waistline my gymnastics scores are getting lower. I just can't stick the landings when I dismount anymore [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

I still haven't found anything. The grant one doesn't get me excited. You have to use a key or something to remove the wheel. I need something a little easier (quicker)

Re: Quick Release steering wheel - Questions

OK, here is the trick-Check around the local race track and ask for an steel steering wheel release collar and mount. Then have your friendly nieghborhood fabricator thread the collar the same as the nut on the end of the column. Screw it down(use a spacer over the splines) and drill a hole thru the collar and column shaft in the threads. make sure the hole is near the bottom so the wheel will go on without hitting the hole. Insert a roll pin. This has about the same amount of height, is simple to remove, light enough to carry, and strong enough to thrash! Works great, and if you need to return it to stock, the hole drilled in the column won't affect the stock parts!
