Are you not using the stock snap ring?

huh? Don't know what that is. Maybe it is a good thing that I am picking up two other steering wheels tomarrow to compare.

Here is the parts diagram for the steering assembly. The snap ring is number 3, and on my truck it is what hits the plastic ring to cancel the turn signal.

If you'd like to see any other diagrams let me know.

Thanks! I will look into incorporating that. See which way is less costly.

Sorry this has fallen behind. I m still going to do it and get the price right. I started to rep another product, which took some time that I thought I would have. The other issue was the only done adapter was on my truck and I need it to copy it. Problem was I broke the truck last time out and it has been sitting a ways away from me for a while. I believe in thorough testing! I will get on it and get something accomplished!

Okay,

I need all you guys feedback. The adapter will be done shortly. I have two questions for you all. I can have them anodized. I can choose between black, red, or blue. I can also supply them in standard AL. Don't worry, I will make one gold for you artm! I would like feedback on what everyone would want because I am going to have to choose just one color. Also, there are two ways to do the bolt pattern for different wheels. I can have multiple holes drilled for many different Aftermarket wheel patterns. This way, you could line up the holes that you would want to use, but there would be extra holes on the adapter. Or, I can leave it without holes and let each one of you guys drill whatever pattern of steering wheel you want. I will do whatever you want but it has to be one of the two options as all these adapters are going to be CNC machined and I do not want to create multiple programs. These adapters could be ready as soon as the monday after this next one. Oh, and I will have the price under $40 almost guaranteed. Under $50 guaranteed.

FYI: They are all CNC Machined out of Billet AL. Very high quality. You will love the quality. I am starting with 100. Thanks

For me I would probably prefer them to be finished in either anodized black or regular Al. I am not sure about the hole patterns. Clearly it would be nice to have pre-drilled holes (thus eliminating any potential disaster when drilling myself), but I am having trouble picturing just whether or not any of the unused holes would be visible with certain steering wheels. In any case, it is great of you to go through this effort, it ought to be a great improvement over our stock arrangements.

David, I would like a black one, I guess pre-drilled seems the smarter move for less mechanicly inclinded people like myself.

Okay guys,

Thanks for the replies. It will be black and pre-drilled. Now to the million dollar question. What wheel manufacturer's are the most important to you all. I want to make a universal adapter but in order to do that, the adapter will look like swiss cheese. So far, it can work with APC and Grant steering wheels. If there are other companies like MOMO that you have your heart set on, please let me know. I can make them fit most things, but a big part of this is to keep it skinny (I think the wheel is too close to us to begin with) and to keep the price down. Thanks!!!

Edit: I can add MOMO to the list but that brings me up to 14 holes. I can ax APC if you all want and drop it to 9 holes for MOMO and Grant. These are not holes that you will be able to see at all, but structural integrity is something to consider at a cirtain point.

Hey,

It is nearing done. It looks like the adapter will work with any Grant, Momo, or sparco wheel. Is this good enough or are there others that you would want? You guys are the customer, so speak now! Thanks!

Same here. Now I have to shop for a wheel. Could anyone suggest a nice and comfortable grant, momo, or sparco wheel?

What would be cool, is to get a steering wheel that looks stock, has a place for the Land Rover emblem at the center, and is a bit smaller. That would be champ.
Looking at the MOMOs, I like the Runner, the Club4, maybe the Monte Carlo.
Looking at the Grants, I like the GT Ralley models 1102, 1105 and 1107. The carbon fiber or the wood are turn offs, but that can always be painted basic black.
I dont care for any of the Sparco wheels, too racy.
Any other manufacturers?
