has anyone tried to swap to a custom steering wheel?...or would one from another mopar product work? (like maybe one of those neat leather wrapped jobs from a Sebring or maybe a PT Cruiser)...just curious if the steering column shaft size, cruise & airbag contacts would be the same...any feedback?
thanx

You would have to get one made for our car, because the clock spring (the electrical contacts that allow the steering wheel to turn yet still maintain electrical connection) is different in most cars. If you could find a chrysler car with one with a matching clock spring, it might work, but who knows. And swapping one from a totally different car or brand would almost positively not work, again, unless the clock spring was the exact same...

...checked with my friend at the dodge dealer today and he said they're only a couple of different clocksprings for chrysler cars...as long as the wheel you want to use has same control buttons (cruise controls) and the depth on the back where it fits to the column housing is close, the other wheel should work...gonna see if I can find one from a stratus or a cirrus(w/leather of course)...and most salvage yards I've checked get around $50 for the whole assembly...make sure you get the clockspring for the new wheel.
more info later....beep!beep! for now!
