Replace the steering wheel (like I did) or buy a replacement cover to re-sew over it.

How hard is that with the air bag? Or don't I have one of those? I know thats a weird question, I think I do, I just never really thought about changing the steering wheel....

Buy a Wheelskin. They are leather covers you sew on over you steering wheel. You can even get them preforated ect. Check out http://www.wheelskins.com/ If you deside to buy one, try searching on google first, there are some websites that sell the same product for cheaper, try ebay also. Make sure you use the size chart on the link and be sure you purchase the correct size.

no cover can give you the same feel as the Orignal steering wheel.....and i think they look cheap

scour the yards and look for a good one...OR you can use a black steering wheel like hte 95 Model year uses for all Interior colors

I put a wheelskin on my 91 Sonoma and I am happy with the results. Just take your time and lace it on tight.
