    Hello,
    Although I have just registered, I've been participating the list for quite a while... great source of info. Thanks everyone who makes this forum possible ( I have saved a lot of money during the last restoration project).
    Now for the question. I have a newer GM truck steering wheel out of a 2000 Silverado. I would like to try to fit it, and was wondering if anyone has done it? (I have access to the Instrument Panel that the wheel came from). I have power steering (GM Saginaw) and will be dropping in a new engine + automatic trans later. Wiring is not an issue since that's what I do for a living here in the Detroit area. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Make sure the column is going to be long enough from the dash to where you need it when in your driving position. I used a newer style the first time I put a column in and it was too much of a reach to the wheel. Newer cars seem to have the dash sticking out closer to the driver.
