Okay, been to the jy and can confirm there is at least 2 types of woodgrain, ill post pics later. Oddly enough, none of them had wood on the back doors. Those and the wheel are all I need.

Side question: Since I don't have a garage to park in, should I be worried about the wood fading?

Most problems are the result of a loose nut connecting the steering wheel to the pedals.

Anyone know how many variations of the wheel there are? Might be going to the jy tomorrow

Most problems are the result of a loose nut connecting the steering wheel to the pedals.

For what it's worth:
I was at my favorite junk yard today and they have about 20 gen 4's - not one had this steering wheel...
Good luck...
