Question steering wheel options

I am looking to change my steering wheel, but not sure to what. I just do not like the stock wheel. I am curious what aftermarket steering wheels others have used. I like the one on the orange D-90 on ebay (see link under misc. chit chat...wish I could figure out this damn link stuff) but don't know the source. I know I do not want one too small.

Thanks in advance for any info.

I think the normal replacement is a Mountney? I dunno which ones fit LRs but here's a link.

I know that early Austin Metro and Montego cars have the same fitting but they are no very pretty!

I believe the orange D-90 in Momo. They did make a replacement but do not anymore. You can make any steering wheel work by cutting the core out of your wheel and mating it to a bracket and bolting the new steering wheel to that. Took about an hour.

I have a Momo Competition II in my D-90 and in my opinion it's probably the single greatest add on that's been done to the truck. I have driven tons of D-90's and it is truly amazing how much more comfortable it is to drive my truck with this upgrade. I have heard from several owners how "the large steering wheel was designed by Land Rover to help make minor adjustments off road...blah, blah, blah." trust me, with my little Momo, I have more room to get in and out of the truck, it's more comfortable to grip, and makes driving in stop and go traffic & long interstate hauls about as pleasant as possible. As far as offroad handling, I like it TONS better than the stock wagon wheel it came with, and I have never felt limited in any way by having it installed. I dont know if Momo still makes this steering wheel or not, but I'd certainly recommend it to anyone.

A while back someone was trying to get an adapter made for the Momo wheels to fit on the 90. Apparently, they never could get the minimum number of people together to place the order. David, I have read somewhere the procedure you suggest. Maybe that is what I end up doing.

Thomas, I would be very interested in seeing your steering wheel, if you could post a picture. I would prefer something a little larger than most of the racing wheels. Like the orange 90 on ebay has. But a momo wheel would be so much better than what's on my truck now. I can't seem to leave anything stock, but especially something like the steering wheel, which I really dislike.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

The wheel adapter deal is still in the works. Email me and I'll send you Matt Bremner's email address. He's keeping a list of folks that want a momo adapter. We are still looking for a source but there is a good sized group.

Ask Matt about making the adapters. He was looking for a shop to make them. There is a thread about this on the old board that I posted.

Sadly, I am not the one in charge of their distribution, someone else on the list has taken charge of that point. I was just the one who pursued them through MOMO to find as many as I could. Then told him how many I had, and he is handling the distribution.

Sorry,
Matt

Matt, since there is such demand, how about holding on to one of them to make copies? Mark said he can probably make some....

Will,

Thanks for the notice. I have placed a bid. If I get it, I can have it shipped to you, Mark, in New York to machine some copies.
