    Hi. Thought I would throw it out there. I recently purchased a 1989 Mustang GT and am very happy and excited about having another Mustang again. I was aiming at buying a 90-93 but found this 89.

    I like that it is a tilt wheel but I really don't like the look of the stock steering wheel. I know I can change the wheel (I'm looking at Momo Jet) but I want to keep the cruise control capability in case I want to go back to stock.

    Any ideas? Also, if you have pics, please post of aftermarket wheels. I am also considering the leather wrapped OE version available from Latemodel - though the cost is high.
    Thanks.

    I wrapped my oe wheel myself. Cost me $20 and I love how it came out.

    If interested I can post pics later

    there is an aftermarket Grant kit that retains cruise but it looks a little wonky imo....
    Funny thing... I've had a 13" Grant in my 93 since 2000. parked the car in 07 to start rebuild, spent those years from 07 to 11 driving two chevy trucks, that I had put nice matte black steering wheel covers on and now that the fox is running, I went back to the OEM airbag wheel with a matte black cover as well.... go figure..
    I felt like I was in a faster version of mario kart driving around with that 13" Grant... :)

    The cruise adapter is probably not going to be easy to come by.
    Supposidly there is a saleen club member that makes them for guys with real saleens, but i don't know if he makes them for just anybody.

    That's a clean solution. I'd like to do something like that.

    It's going to cost you.
    If you see them on ebay assume you are going to drop $200 at least.

    Here's my leather wrapped stocker.

    Why i keep a stock non-cruise wheel is beyond me. Would be an easy swap, but i prefer the OEM look better

    Nice steering wheel. 5L5, yeah I bought a skin but it was too big. Your looks real good though. Late model offers the same wheel leather wrapped but it's expensive.

    Dallas Custom Steering wheel recovered my stock wheel. I had them add a thicker padding like the 94 F150 that I own. Cost a bit though.

    Just an update. Long story short I saw this steering wheel and they were throwing in the adapter with purchase so I went for it. Regarding the cruise control, I found that I didn't have to cut any wires, it simply isn't functional unless I use the stock wheel or if I add the switches somewhere else. I just wanted to leave the option open to use if I sold it later down the road.

    Here's a pic:

    Here's my son inspecting the wheel. He said OK.

    I had a Grant in my 89 for a little while. Later on I switched back to the stock wheel and the cruise still worked. I would like to ditch the wheel in my 91 since it is worn through on the top of the wheel. However I have to have my cruise for my drive to work.

    What about using a control box mounted to the dash somewhere, from say.... one of those Pep-Boys cruise control kits?

    Or fabbing something up through a sett of momentary switches?

    Dallas steering wheel does great work. I had them do a wheel for me for another vehicle a few years back and it looked like factory. i'm going to have them do my spare wheel for my fox at some point. great company to deal with also.

    I don't care for the stock steering wheel either (1989), but 200+ for a Momo? Forget it. I'll look around for some of those Grants.
