steering wheel donors

the steering wheel on my cj is falling apart. when it is wet out, the wheel just crumbles and leaves your hands (and anything else that comes in contact with it) black. so my queation is, when looking for other wheels in the boneyard, will any or most others fit, or are there different types? i know the newer ones with airbags and such probably wouldn't work, and i know there are different diameters, but do they have different shaft sizes?

thanks all
shawn

The cup isn't half full or half empty, it's just twice the size it needs to be!!!

Re: steering wheel donors

look for GM or jeep vehicles fromt he late 70's to the early 90's. i think they all mount the same way, some of them have a different horn button set-up though. matt

Re: steering wheel donors

I'd donate mine, but had the same problem. ended up swapping it out for a smaller Grant one. Not sure on your wheel, but mine had splines in it that mated to the shaft. You'll just have to find one with the same size shaft and the right number of splines.
