Sure, just go down to the local junk and get one from a taurus. Should work just fine.

Gives you an airbag even.

Why does everyone hate the poor Defender steering wheel? So its huge, fat, and offset - Microsoft just calls issues like that "features." I think it just adds to the trucks quirkieness.

LOL... that was genuine.

Yeah, I agree ... I actually like it, it does add to the uniqueness.

It feels like I'm driving a tractor. But it fits the purpose.

I don't mind the school-bus steering wheel - gives me extra leverage turing the wheels when I need it. But the TILT column would be great - if you drive long distances, like I sometimes do, it sure would be easier on the arms.

And another thing.. the lack of left-side armrest kills me. Opening the window is fine many times, but not when I actually want to be able to talk to my passenger while driving, or, heaven forbid use the phone.

I know, suck it up. But I was thinking that a flip-down armrest like many conversion vans have on their 'captains' chair might be cool on the D90....

If you drive long distances in your D90, the least of your problems is the non-tilting steering column...LOL

Left side armrest....

Left side armrest problem solved with a $3.99 Truck Stop solution. Works perfect.
