    i have an aftermarket wheel and i love it. find one that you like and buy a hub to mount it. its easy to install, just need a steering wheel puller.

    did you find a steering wheel adapter that fit your truck or is it universal? i found one that is universal to fit a grant wheel.

    mine is a MOMO made for pre-tacoma toyota trucks, but its the same as a tacoma. but it only fits 6 hole wheels, like sparco, momo, etc...

    its a 2000. no check engine light, but the airbag light goes on. i just unplugged the srs module and it got rid of the light.

    i have a momo hub, it will work on your truck because my friend has the same one on his 01. momo doesn't list an application for tacomas because of the airbag, but the one for the pre-taco pick-ups fits exactly the same.

    MOMO, Sparco, and OMP all use the MOMO style adapter (6-hole). Other brands may require a different adapter.

    In all cases, look for a pre-1995.5 adapter application listing. No one lists an application past (around ...) 1994, because that's when the airbags became mandatory on small trucks.

    I wanted a better steering wheel for my '02, a sporty black leather 3-spoker. I also wanted to keep the air bag. Taco TD came up with the best solution . . . IS300 steering wheel with a RAV4 bag. Best of all it looks OEM, the look I wanted.

    I'm set for the sport steering wheel conversion . . . less than $200 in parts. The column covers were a purchase option. I wanted a second set of covers to paint satin black to match the steering wheel. I'll keep the originals as is just in case I ever want to revert back.
