#3289 is the standard installation kit for the ford ranger. I got it on ebay for about $15, but, again, I still dont have a horn, and now my airbag light is on the fritz. It doesnt beep at me or anything, but I'll have to figure all this stuff out, then maybe do a write-up. I think this technically quialifies as an "illegal mod"


Yes it is indeed illegal.

IIRC the whole airbag system is shut off with it.

+1. I was gonna suggest using a Mustang adapter, since the SN95 and the 1996-1997 CV/GM use the same steering wheel.

yeah, the problem is that the grant rep told me they make no kits whatsoever for airbag-equipped vehicles, which is total BS because the make airbag-equipped wheels for airbag equipped-vehicles, and hubs for car with optional airbags. Long story short, grant reps are not the brightest bulbs in the box... But i like the way the steering wheels look \:D

Illegal or not, it's what you wanted to do and it looks good If I do an aftermarket wheel I'm not too worried about a horn, as I have a Whelen electric airhorn and I used the trunk release on the dash as the momentary contact switch for it
