SRT Steering Wheel in a JK

I just wanted to post up my Saturday project.
I took a SRT 8 steering wheel and modified it to fit my 2011 LS3 JK.
It took some work but I think it looks bad ass in the JK.

And do the buttons on the wheel work?

Can this be done in a 07-10?

Yes the buttons on the steering wheel work.


Im not sure about 07-10. At minimum it would need a newer clock spring and I don't think your old jeep air bag would line up with the new wheel.

This is a one of thing. I don't plan on making this part of our kit. These steering wheels are stupid expensive, i just happen to find a good deal on one so I tried it out.

I spent a long time looking into this, without any clear conclusions. The last I read, the spline count between any of the SRT wheels and the JK wheel is different. Did you have to remove the splined insert and put in or machine something that fits? Or does it fit directly? The rest seems easy, the connection diagrams are available etc, it's just those splines that are holding me back. Since you called it a Saturday project, I'm going to go ahead and infer that it is a direct fit and I'm going to start getting excited. There are part numbers for the covers that block the holes if you yank those paddles off. Or maybe that's just me, I have a manual. I remember people saying making the paddles work would be a bear. Please let us know!

The splines are different. I took a old wheel and cut out the splines, machined them down and pressed it into the SRT wheel.
The paddles will come out and covers are available as well as a wheel without paddles.

The wiring for the cruise and evic buttons should be the same for 2011 and up but the paddles run on a different circuit.
