The Leather on my OEM steering wheel is torn at a few spots. I was looking for a cover and they all involved sewing and a long process. I don't like the stretch covers. I see used steering wheels on ebay for the same price as a leather cover. How hard/easy is it to replace steering wheel on a 98 Jeep Wrangler with Airbags. I read another post where it was suggested to remove the fuses for the airbags, and even disconnect the battery.

I don't have my FSM on this computer so I can't tell you the exact steps, but yes, you definitely want to disable the airbag. There's a reserve capacitor in the system that you need to allow to discharge (I believe for 2 mins.)

I think stitching a new leather cover on your existing steering wheel would ...just probably... be a hell of a lot easier than swapping the entire steering wheel.
