Default Steering wheel swap

Just bought my 2011 Ram SLT, there are a few things I'm not happy with and a few things I'm gonna have to learn to live with IE fuel milage.

My big issue is the steering wheel. I can't stand the two pillars close together at the bottom as this is right in the position I'm used to, and most comfortable driving in. I have steering wheel mounted controls for the computer but I'm wondering is there an aftermarket wheel that has different pillar position, yet still keeps the computer controls?

Cheers
Ian

I do....lol
And yes, it was hard to get use to. I used to have my index and middle finger on the bottom back side of where the single bottom pillar was. It is just different but i got used to it. LOL

humm i guess aftermarket wont have the air bags, connections and everything you need

i would look into other dodge, jeep véhicules, in scrap yards/recycling yards,... to see if their is a model that you like and get that one,

this is in my opinion your best option as they will have the air bag in it, and probably the same connections for the button and control,...

hope this helps
