Getting tired of the old Stock Hummer steering wheel and I went out looking for a new one. Found a Grant Challenger series P/N 414 as seen here on their website Grant Products 414 Challenger Series. It looks nice and feels ok in the box. Once getting the Steering Wheel, I found the adaptor kit info on the back of the box for the Hummers, it is Kit # 4270 and the picture on the box is not 100% what you get, but it is close.
After getting all the parts together and ready for installing I removed the old steering wheel and installed the new one, only to find that the adaptor kit creates about 3/8 inch gap between the column and looks awful if you ask me.
July of 2003, Mr. Joey Ferrari of Grant sent me a updated adaptor kit to check out and he stated that they have corrected the mounting problems that I was having and that I should be much happier with this kit. He also stated that there is an option where I can have my horn in the center of the steering wheel like most normal cars & trucks, but I must get the extra part from auto parts store or a dealership. This is great ! At last I get my wish, a horn in the center!
First Generation Adaptor Kit
Please note that the above pictures are the first generation adaptor kit and since July 2003, I now have a new version of this that corrects the above problems. New photos to come soon (Sept 21, 2003).
Check out the Grant Product web site for more more steering wheels, I think if this new kit works out as good as they say it does, I plan on getting a newer steering wheel. For me, the Challenger 440 is nice, but I find the gap in the 4 spoke version gets is small and gets in the way of my way went flipping the turn signal and I am thinking I may go to the 860 version.
