    Has anyone installed an aftermarket, non-airbag steering wheel? I have yet to come across any hub adapters that would allow the fitment of a MOMO/Sparco/grant/etc steering wheel.

    Also anybody successfully install aftermarket seats? At this point planning to modify the stock manual seat rail to throw in a Recaro driver seat that was originally destined for my old Bimmer, but would love to see what you guys have done

    Grant has them with airbag, basically plug and play. Let me know if you have questions or if you need to find one? I have installed 5 of them, pictures(old vs new) below on the one I did this past week.

    Very nice! And reasonably priced online at around $200. Does the steering wheel come with CC buttons and audio controls? Or do they all need to switched over from old wheel?

    Will add this to the list once I get my driver seat figured out. Currently have a heated/cooled seat from a 1st gen Infiniti m45 in my truck, but after a quarter million miles of use it’s pretty much destroyed

    Everything is plug and play. Remove air bag/buttons from the old one and just swap everything over to the new one.

    you’re probably going to be hard pressed to find anyone who has changed the stock SRT10 seats since they are so perfect already, and have the nice stitching in the headrest. I’m assuming the only folks that would replace them would be folks racing their 10’s.

    I bet those seats ain't cheap, but they do look gorgeous. I also notice that it has a manual Tranny, I thought there was only one person who did the conversion???

    There’s more than that. 6speedquadcab(really clean swap too)had his 06 converted also. I would say there’s maybe about 100 quad cabs converted over to manual transmission.

    Nice! I'm sure there's a bunch of brackets and such that have to be modified. Not to mention possibly extending the DS?

    Yes. I forgot who did 6speedquadcab swap, he’s on the forum but forgot his screen name. But pretty much used all oem parts from the RC, 6speedquadcab looked like if it came from the factory that way. Yes I believe he went with a 1 piece driveshaft, QC have a 2 piece.

    Custom appears to be the only way. Will have our ranch mechanic/welder come up with something to attach my Recaro to a factory manual seat rail. Thanks all

    Braum seats are surprisingly affordable, was planning on putting some in my RC, check their website vs Recaro or Sparco
