    Any steering wheel covers you guys recommend?..preferrably the ones you have to actually stitch together. Looking to protect my wheel as I know these are prone to bad fading. Mine is already a bluish tone when it should be black.

    Thia is what I use. Mainly it is to keep my hands not frozen in winter but I don't remove in summer as well.

    Genuine sheepskin, in your favorite color... which will probably fade, so buy a couple of different "brands". Black fur tends to fade more naturally than grey, my grey is now almost teal.

    Genuine sheepskin is grippy, and comfortable in all temps. My wheel is never hot or cold, the cover never slips on the wheel, my hands/knees never slip on the cover, and I get compliments on my "fuzzy steering wheel" regularly... from young girls, but still.

    Every sheepskin/wool product I have tried has outperformed the alternatives (especially synthetics!).

    Nice little side note- almost all sheepskin products are the result of wool sheep dying of natural causes, predators, or accidents. They don't slaughter them because their wool is far more valuable than the skin and meat. So you're actually buying a "waste" material from the wool industry.

    Ask me again about sheepskin. I DARE you.

    So which particular sheep store did you pick up your wheel covers at? I've been missing my wheel cover since I sold my Tacoma.

    I bought like, five of them from various ebay/Amazon sellers for pretty cheap. The one major downside to sheepskin is that unless you're buying a top-dollar coat, consistency is hard to find.

    On ebay, there is a seller named "Dusik" something-or-other, he had a couple of good ones for cheap that didn't fade. His colors weren't quite as rich out of the package, but they held up better than the dye on my current one (I think it's a Eurow brand).

    I shouldn't have given the ex-girlfriend the TRD red one, but she begged...
