    According to Grant's website, their p/n 3593 is the conversion for a 74+ column to swap on a Grant wheel....

    kewl...

    but, what dish depth? Looks like handful fall in the 2-1/4 to 3" range....anyone with input on this? figgering a 13 - 14" diameter (stock FJ40 is 17")

    (damn sick of the schoolbus wheel on there now, and with hydro assist, the monster size isnt needed...plus a padded wheel will provide a little added gription AND be less painful on the noggin should I bump it :D )

    I love my Grant wheel and it looks like it should be there if you know what I mean. Depth of the wheel is approx 2.5". I just picked out the wheel on the wall I liked at Seco, they got the adapter from behind the counter and out the door I went for approx $175 IIRC.

    Not to hijack, but does anyone know the Grant part number for the pre-69 install kit? They don't list it on their website, but Specter sells one. I suppose I could just buy it from Marv, but if I can get it at my local store...

    anyone ever used the Grant removable steering wheel? I've always thought it was a neat idea, but like many things have never gotten around to implementing it.

    It was recently discussed only because I've asked the same question before with no response. I've searched.

    interestingly, the boxes for Grant wheels show two different adapters....one for 75ish rigs and one for 78+ rigs....

    not on their website tho...

    AutoZone carries 4-5 variations of wheel, and I'm gonna hit AdvanceAuto after work....see what their selection is.

    "Dish" isn't as critical a deal as I thought, looks like most are in the 2-3 range anyways, and that 1" won't matter.

    Then, your honor, let the record show this to be the correct part number. :)
