I have a couple of very minor peels right in the spot where you press your palm while turning (around 2 o'clock position for me) Another issue for me is that the outer layers of the wheel are "disconnected" from whatever is in the core, so I can actually twist the leather around the core of the wheel (right at the 12 o'clock position)
Easiest fix for the peeling is to get yourself one of those fancy, furry wheel covers. Maybe a pink one...
Just as an FYI, Wheel Skins make leather lace on steering wheel covers. It is a lot cheaper than replacing the wheel. They come in many colors, some 2-tone. I put mine on right after I bought the jeep, even though I had a leather wheel. I like the feel, because it makes the wheel thicker. I clean it one a month or so with a leather wipe, and it looks as good as the day I installed it. Took about an hour, with 2 cups of coffee!rangehat:
Just to re revive this thread, i also have a severe problem with this, every time i get out of the vehicle after driving it, my hands are stuck with this pieces of rubber, or fabric. I want to fix this, but not sure how. I am looking into steering wheel restoration, but i heard it's quite expensive. i've found these guys on google, woodensteeringwheels.com has anyone delt anything with them ? let me know

ive decided that I’m looking for a 4.7 or a 5.7 but either must have QD2. As you can...
Just bought a 2006 Commander, and I'm looking to restore it to its former glory. Lots to do, but one thing: any suggestions to fix the antenna / radio? Places to buy it, and is it an easy install? (I don't just mean the twist-off cosmetic piece, but the entire antenna).
Hey everyone, Just bought a used 2008 Commander Limited in Stone White with a 5.7L Hemi. I'm pretty much going to be building and using the rig for overlanding in the southwestern portion of the rocky's and hopefully more once I get out of the lovely land of entrapment, otherwise known as New...
I purchased my first jeep the Commander earlier this year, love it,
question: how many miles can we put on our commanders
I guess if you owned a jeep in the past would give a good idea, what my question is have some of you owned your jeep for 10yrs or more? how many miles have you put...
