Aftermarket Steering Wheel

If I get an aftermarket steering wheel, what happens with the horn and airbag?

A lot of aftermarket wheels have a horn button so you'll just have to redo the wiring..

Got an aftermarket wheel on my 96f150 after I wrecked it and decided to make it a drag truck and just ditched the airbag completely..

Good luck

They go bye bye unless the aftermarket wheel has a horn built into it. Many of them do. Make sure you save the stock stuff if you ever sell the car. I'd just try finding a NIB FR500 wheel ($400-$500) or get a Redline re-cover of the stock one.

Isn't it illegal to not have an airbag??

Yep. Which is why if you want a "foncy" steering wheel you get the FR500 or get yours re-covered with the redline stuff like I said.


You can remove it if you use the car as a dedicated race car obviously and trailer it to and from the track.

Well it also depends on age of the vehicle too, at least in Missouri it's that way..

I believe its a federal thing to modify or remove safety equipment, just like emissions is federal. I could be wrong. But Federal law is law no matter where you are, doesn't matter what the state says.

It's also a federal crime to remove the cats and I'm sure a lot of us are guilty of that

Every car I have had in the last 10 or so years has been fully emissions compliant I know "technically" if the car came with 4 cats you are supposed to have 4 cats. But seeing as you can easily pass emissions these days with no cats the way modern OHV motors are tuned...


Plus I get mine visually inspected every 2 years and as long as they see a cat on each pipe they're good to go.
