I am getting close to have this all figured out. Right now it looks like it will be made from machined aluminum puck with 1/4 plate to bolt the steering wheel to. Should be very clean. I will keep everyone in the loop on my progress.

Okay, who speaks German? I found an adapter:

Funny enough, they also have storage boxes just like Troy's....

Hi Guys,

I actually bought one of these the other day..from ETT based here in france. Issue was no-one could tell me what size of splined shaft I had...so we measured it - obviously there is more than one size around. Ok, the interesting thing is that it has about 12 monting holes in it (I guess this means you can mount several brands of steering wheel). Not so cool, is that this thing is about 65mm high, which will force me to buy a compleatly flat steering wheel..hmmm. Cost was I belive 57 Euro..

I have finished the first prototype. The wifey has the digi camera so I will post pics tomarrow. The end unit is nice looking, and .600 of an inch thick. This was important to me for the functionality. My price, 56 euro.

...Just kidding. Right now that stupid part cost me about $80 to make, minus the broach. But now that I have some idea, I can get the price down. I will post more with pics.

Here are pics of the new adapter with a wheel on it. Yes, I am too lazy to take the wheel off. And no, you are not required to put a super cheesy, pep boys, Ralph Machio inspired steering wheel on there. The adapter will fit any wheel that you want to use, from super nice, to below. Check out the low profile!

oooopppsss, how did a pic of my new axle truss get in there!? wierd

Dave, what's the diameter of your steering output shaft? I thought the Euro trucks or non-NAS trucks had a lrger diameter output than the rest of us.

I was just wondering what is the advantage of using this adaptor for an aftermarket steering wheel? Is it just personal preference or do you gain anything by it.

Bling, AND Substance If you consider $24.95 bling. I am going to be testing these adapters on mine, a D1 and a NAS D90. I have access to them all. I think at this point that they are the same but I am not totally sure so I have to check. That is part of the reason this is taking so long. As to the advantages, I did it so that I could get rid of the 2 foot military wheel that was a pain in the ---. The only real advantage is the ability to mount the steering wheel of your choice, and to gain much needed arm room for us taller folks. It made my ride a lot more comfortable. I also went with a smaller wheel so that I cound get in and out with the mastercraft seats. I will keep moving foreword on this! I think I may just break down and cnc the others.

Bling isn't necessarily how much, it's how much does it look.

I'm only using the regular seats and Euro wheel in the 110 and I find it just fine. It's a bit slick at times so a leather cover may be in order but it's smaller than the NAS 90.

Certainly with larger seats it is a plus. I'm considering fitting Range Rover seats front and back (or middle) and a smaller wheel may be better.

No, sorry, the wheel was 25, the first adapter I made cost me over $80. It has to do with the funky turn signal trippers on the back of it. I think that the only way that I can get these things down in the $50 range is to make a program and cnc the pucks. I am looking into it right now. Have some AL lined up I think. I will keep you all in the loop. Thanks for your patience!
