That looks awesome. I think the painted steering wheel bezel really adds.

Great results! You use Mopar rattle cans w/ clear coat?

Wow! Looks pretty cool! You painted the Speedo and tach bezels black to match the a/c vent bezel’s?

Nice work! +1 on the steering wheel bezel really setting it off.

If I didn't have the red Rubi dash, this would be on my "to do" list for sure (even now tempted to paint the speedo and tach rings black).

Oh that does look good.

I do like the steering wheel and bezel changes. Great work!

I had a local automotive paint store mix the paint for me.

Looks great! I plan on doing the same to mine. What was the process to remove the steering wheel?

Disconnect both grounds on the battery and let sit for 20-30 mins. Small pick screwdriver to pull the caps on the back of the steering wheel.


10mm socket to take the bolts out on each side under the cap you removed. The center of the wheel will come out. You will need to unplug the airbag and set it to the side.


You will need a T10, T15 and a T20 torx screwdriver to get all the screws out for the bezel and controls. There is a black spacer right next to each sides controls. They are in tight but the slide out.


When reinstalling the airbag be careful on how the wires are run and don’t over tighten the bolts holding it in. It sucks it down tight and the horn stays on. Lol.


Hopefully this helps

Thank you! That actually sounds way easier than on the JK where you had to pop the three clips under the airbag at the worst possible angles.
