    Does anyone make a proper steering wheel wrap for our 1st Gen's? I don't want just a one size fits most steering wheel wrap. I'm looking for something that looks like it's an OEM item. Anyone know of anything that would fit the bill?

    Thanks.

    I’ve considered one with high reviews on Big Gurrl from Brasil. Its leather and you need to sew it on using proper technique. It takes hours to do it properly, but looks real good once finished. Conversely, it looks like butt if lazily performed. Cheap at around $16? You can find it.

    or buy a new oem leather wrapped wheel for about $250 on ebay...I keep looking at this option as the wrap wouldn't fix my glue coming loose and the 11am-1pm position.

    I tried searching and didn't come up with much of anything. Got a link to something specific? Looking for grey to black hues.

    About a month late on this but I just bought this one:

    Loncky Leather Steering Wheel Cover for 2005-2011 Toyota Tacoma /2003-2009 4Runner /2004-2010 Sienna /2003-2007 Sequoia /2004-2007 Highlander /2005 2006 Camry /1995 1997-2007 Land Cruiser Accessories

    Another sew-on kit, but I bought the black leather cover for my 2008 Tundra last year, and it has held up well for the past year. It is quite meticulous to install, but I believe it is well worth it. I can’t wait to get this smooth leather installed on my hard stock steering wheel!

    You’re welcome man. I plan on installing it tomorrow morning, so I’ll post pics of install and final result. I’ll also be flushing powered steering fluid and changing lower ball joints out, and I’ll be posting to this thread on my process.

    In our world of custom everything and over abundance, now I'm wishing I could get it in grey.

    You can! When you purchase it send the seller a message and ask for it in grey. You can also ask them to send you perforated leather too. Or different color stitching, or a red center stripe like the Raptors have, pretty much anything you want they’ll make for you.

    I installed a Loncky wheel cover last week on my 2nd Gen sequoia. Although I can't comment on the exact fitment on your wheel, I can tell you that I am more than pleased and completely satisfied with the fit and quality of the leather cover I received from them. It is thick and high quality. The stitching is uniform and professional. Nothing but praise for this company so far. Pro tip..... Use a lot of the double sided tape, especially where the wheel cover goes towards the center since it will be a little loose if not. Here are some pics of mine for reference. Hope this helps with your decision.......DO IT, you will not be disappointed:)IMG_0821.jpgIMG_0819.jpgIMG_2325.jpgIMG_5044.jpgIMG_7861.jpg

    WheelSkins is what I always buy when I purchase a vehicle. It’s the best quality I’ve found and it’s a custom fit, easy to install too. They have 3 options, solid color, two tone and then perforated which can also be two tone. You can do full perforated, top only or sides only.

    They’ll send you swatches so you can check color so that’s a plus.

    I’d order direct from them, Ive bought over 9 of these throughout the years for each car ive had, and cheaped out ONCE on a deal on EBay that had it $15 cheaper and it ended up being a fake packaged in their packaging. It peeled within weeks.

    Every one I’ve bought from them shipped quick and lasted years in the Texas sun with zero issues.

    Nice! I'll be ordering one of the Lonkeys and redoing mine. I like how this covers the entire wheel. Thank you for the link.
    Here is the one I just installed, more of a generic fit but still feels nice.
