    DDC2B1E3-2B84-42F8-B226-83D7301C7BA5.jpg First off, this forum is amazing, I’ve found a ton of info and already spent way too much on mods and I’ve only had the truck a week. My question is: I have a ‘13 Tundra that’s in pretty decent shape, but want to change out my steering wheel cover. It looks like the previous owner had a leather wrap installed, but’s it’s starting to show it’s age and I wanna change it out. Any and all ideas are welcome and I appreciate everyone’s help on here!

    looks great! I have one coming myself but it must be coming from China (Amazon) because I won't get it until late July early August. Looking forward to a few hours of stitching.

    I wanted to do the sew on versions but I didn't think I would have the time and concerned it wouldn't look as nice. So i went with a nw wheel on ebay.

    Not hard at all to swap out. Found a video on you tube. picked up a loner puller from the Autoparts store. Careful with the airbag.

    I think thats the one. So far its held up well.

    Thanks @GTABurnout! Ordered one, might have a local shop help me with the install!

    @TheBeast do you know her name or what her IG username is?

    My truck has tan cloth and gray/brown plastics so I had to get something to match the color of the airbag. Ended up sending the original wheel to craft customs for leather cover. Turned out nice. Looks OEM. Not cheap. If I had black interior I might have gone with the eBay wheel shown above for less cost.6A606E6C-FB5E-4C04-A1D3-58C8985CCEDB.jpg
