Sweet. Glad it's sorted.

Reading comprehension, it's a lost art.

Your description led not only me, but others as well, to read it as you swapped in the new column but had to swap on your old man steering wheel (with the little turning knob I'm sure) to get everything to work. We'll call this one a draw. Now get to work so I can get this pile all scratched up in two weeks!

Well you read it wrong. All I said is that I put my old steering wheel on it. Why would that have anything to do with wiring?

Isn't the turn signal thingy in the column? Why did changing just the wheel do anything?

No asshole, I changed the steering column because of the turn signal/brake light issues. While I was at it, since I was installing a new tilt column in the jeep, I swapped over my Grant steering wheel to it.
How hard is that to understand? sheesh...........

Not hard at all since that's what I said to begin with. I said you put a new column but it wasn't chrome like your old one. I wasn't speaking of the steering wheel. It was a joke about your bling mobile. Reading is indeed a lost art.

See, that's where as mrgreen would say, you were rong! The old one was not chrome, only the Grant steering wheel that was attached to it and subsequently relocated to the new one.

This seems like a lot of work just to change a steering wheel.

I agree. I blame that on the advice I received from my advisors Wednesday night.

Not sure about the column........all he wants to talk about is his steering wheel, which I think he said IS chrome.
