I've searched all over and cannot find this.

Looking for the steering wheel (chrome trim) that is on the airbag. I pulled mine off because I wanted to sand down and paint it flat black and it bent.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I can't help you with the OEM number, but I did come across these which may interest you:

Booky, Thank you. Yes I know these vinyl covers exist but they just don't look as good (in my opinion) as the oem piece when you sand it down and paint it.

I've been looking for the same, I wanted to pop mine off but I wasn't sure how it was mounted or the ability to get it back on. I don't believe the trim ring is sold separately, it comes as part of the airbag cover...

My buddy who is a service manager at Dodge is going to check for me otherwise I will just get an all satin black one from rebadge design. I spoke with the owner and he said that his is made to replace the trim instead of going over it.

Cool... Can't wait to see how it looks.. How did you get yours off? Is it just glued/taped on?

You can’t purchase just the chrome trim. You need to purchase the entire airbag assembly unless you can find an aftermarket part but those don’t fit like OEM. The chrome trim ring is supposed to be flexible so when the airbag deploys it will break at two different locations.

I took mine off the airbag assembly and plastidipped it black. You have to take the airbag assembly off the steering wheel and break it down to remove the trim ring otherwise if you try to pry it off it will break.

It pulls right off pretty easily, but as awehlage stated if you pull it off without properly taking the airbag assembly off it will not be able to be reused.

I plan on picking up an SRT steering wheel at some point, but figured I would play around a little. Had to buy different sets of the CF pieces from two different vendors as the weaves were different between the side and bottom trim pieces that came in each set. I don't know how nobody checks this crap.

In any case I think it looks pretty good for a quick "looks upgrade". Ordered a satin all black steering wheel trim from Rebadge to replace the chrome trim that I pulled off.

^^^ I will. Spoke with the owner of ReBadge Designs and he said his is made to replace the trim piece and not go over it so I'm optimistic.

For those who asked.....here is a pic of the finished steering wheel and a pick of the rebadge horn trim before install. The front is bubbled and the back is completely flat with great adhesive.
Came out pretty good. Def better than the stock look.

I’m tired of looking for that part, they don’t make it. I was actually considering replacing it too, they scratch easy, enough stress.

Don’t see the steering wheel trim in black on the website. Have a link or information on how to purchase? Thanks!

Call or send email to the owner Nathan. He will make it any color you want. I asked for satin black.

@OP or any member that can help, I need that part replaced. What I discovered was the top coat is like a clear coat sprayed on. Mine started peeling off. So I looked and found some spray clear coat bottles.

How do I pull this steering thing out without damaging anything?

You have to take the air bag off the steering wheel and then remove the air bag cover (the part with all the trim pieces) to access the back side to snip all the plastic retainers holding the trim piece and the center badge. If you don’t take it apart and just pry from the front you will break the pieces. If you don’t plan on reusing the original trim pieces, pry away.

Ok sir, man thanks for replying. Are there any videos, tutorials? Just to be safe, not damage anything?
I’ll look either way, see what I can come up with, thanks amigo.
