What bolt count is the wheel hub? I want to do the quick release/detachable steering wheel and delete the clock spring and air bag (broke mine off roading) and I want to do a nice clean setup. NRG seems to make some good ones. But it’s a universal 6 bolt. Anyone know what bolt count it is??

Should just be 1 bolt. On my mustang I had to grind a flat spot on the steering shaft then weld the collar of the quick hub to the shaft and the other part of the hub bolted to steering wheel. I used a recaro wheel

Does anyone know of an adapter to fit the hub? Or what size that one piece is to put in a 6 bolt adapter? I wanna use a 6 bolt quick release in the wheel.

Found a bunch in a search. All over 100 bucks

One at summit was cheaper but only came up during a ranger search, at the site said it was for F150.

I'd have to hold one in my hand before I would recommend it to a member. Have never used one but it does increase the steering wheel options doesn't it?

A quick release hub is kinda universal

Our steering wheels have a splined piece that hold the steering wheel in. There needs to be a splined piece that goes to turn the tires. The splined adapter will have a 6-bolt adapter to bolt the quick release hub that will then hold the wheel. I found the hub and wheel I want. Does anyone know what spline count and size our wheels have? Because I want to either fab my own or just find one that may fit a mustang or a Mazda Miata or something with similar drive controls. I don’t wanna pull my wheel off and then do it. I get one day off a week so time to do stuff is limited.

I just saw this, if you still need spline info I have a steering wheel in the basement I can count.

I’ve considered swapping the column out just so I could use a different wheel, like one from a late 60s full-size ford truck. Don’t care if horn works, I have a separate horn switch with air horns if I need to “honk” at anyone.

OOPS forgot about this thread.

Looks like there is about a 3 tooth gap pointed toward the right, I imagine it is an orientation to the steering shaft.



Here's the un cropped version:

I need to ask, are you building a Race Vehicle ?

If not, WHY then would you want a QD Steering Wheel other than a security device ?

For street use they are not the best choice, because the fitment isn't always as tight as the steering wheel should be !
I know NASCAR uses them but you don't think their Hubs coast $100, or the cheapest one... !?!?

Just wondering not criticizing, your truck is your truck.

I understand :)

It is a strong passion to just have "what you want" and not necessarily what everyone else wants. The same reason I like 2000 single cabs in amazon green metallic.

FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A QUICK RELEASE HUB!!
The hub is a splined piece with a 6 bolt plate on it. 
The splined piece will go onto the steering shaft itself an the wheel and quick release assembly will be bolted to it. 
A 97-02 F150 Spline is the same as the 05 and older rangers. 
(Just google ‘ranger steering wheel direct swaps’ and someone I believe in Ranger Station made a post of it)
The F150 hub will fit our rangers directly. Usually around $130 for it. Instead of tack welding something to your steering shaft. 
:)

Just wondering not criticizing, your truck is your truck.

I am building a mini Baja truck. I am getting a camburg 5.5 kit, the upgraded steering kit, going to do the 8.8 with lower gears, upgrade shocks and everything else. I am eliminating airbags and horn. As I have broken the assembly inside the wheel that has the air bag assembly and horn wires. 
I know. Everyone. Why does an 18 year old little girl drive a vehicle with no airbags? 
Because in the state of Florida it is NOT ILLEGAL to have no airbags. I am not doing anything unlawful. 
Thank you for your concern.
