    3" lift, 2010 black Taco wheels wrapped in 33" tires, Double-din radio.
    I have a '98 taco and I want to replace the steering wheel in it, since its not my favorite style and the grip on it is getting pretty low. I have a cover I want to put on it for now, but I want to replace it altogether eventually. I want to have an airbag and it to go along with the light blue/grey interior I have. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Celica or Supra steering wheels from around the same era is your best bet.

    But they are either very hard to find used or insanely expensive new.

    Problem is your airbag... If the airbag is not from the same year(s) it was designed for you are walking into a mess.. NOT all airbags are the same.. Ones from supra will not work nor any others do to the fact that the airbag is DESIGNED for that interior only..

    Example the NEW RECALL including my tundra 2003 is for the airbag. if you notice its only for XX years and NOT the new ones.. Airbag designs change all the time do to interior changes..

    Also if you have cruise control you will LOSE that also unless you fab something up with the controller if not using a factory wheel..
