    They have a wheel and hub for around $40.00 on ebay. They are sporty and last pretty long. I bought one over 2 years ago for a Toyota. Has the 6 bolt patterned hub too.
    This link shows the wheel I got, but mine has no red. This one has free shipping too. Hubs can be found real cheap on ebay too for these.

    http://grantproducts.com/products/view/248/ Grant steering wheel adapter. around $30 then you can use almost any aftermarket wheel. Then Lecarra has an adapter to go from 3 bolt (Grant) to 9 bolt if you go that way.

    I've had a Grant hub and wheel on my 81 for 17 years and never had a single problem with it. the only thing I did was shorten the turn signal leaver a few inch's so its doesn't stick out past the 13.5" wheel.

    I have been running a grant adaptor and wheel on Geronimo for almost 30 years - currently running (for 25+ years)a Grant GT series wheel in turquoise - check out the pic in the Gallery section.

    I have the black Challenger but might switch it as its getting old and beat up.



    I was thinking of going with this but it's for a boat so has no horn button

    now that I see that wheel - that was the first grant wheel I had on Geronimo - the turquoise one is a Formula GT. Thanks for pointing that out Fordubishi!

    Alright Im looking at the part numbers and the 3390 is for 1985-93 ram50s and then i found part number 4389 which is more expensive but says it fits 1979-84 ram 50s.... are there any differences at all between the two? I guess what im asking is which one should i go with... and the only place where i can find the 4389 one is on grants actual site and its more money..

    to me the number 4389 comes back as the adaptor to make it fit the truck.

    My mistake I put in the 85 Ram 50, 4389 is the correct one for the 79-84's sorry about that.

    Y didn't you just get a square body eclipse steering wheel? They're sporty, lighter and bolt right up.

    Thats the same hub I got too. They are sort of hard to hook horn up, but I think bolt patterns are universal if not mistaken

    I like the wheel that came on my 86 truck, Got that stash spot on the wheel center and its flexible, looks pretty good to, though I have had to change the leather wrap twice. My Celica I got rid of had an original old school Grant Signature wheel and actually had his signature engraved right on it.
