Still waiting on Canada post to get back to work so I can get mine. Good luck
Thanks. I hope thats the case and just back ordered.

Sorry to here it but this what seems to happen with the specialty keel parts. Ford releases parts to service and has to put material hold on orders outside the normal service channels. Hope they release these back into the pipeline.

Good news. I spoke with Mike over at Tousley Ford Parts and he just told me that they were on back order and should be available in 3 to 4 weeks. So he will send me one as soon as they come in. He just said that Ford didn't realize there would be such a demand for these. Thanks steveespo for all the good info.

The GT500 steering wheel is just as nice, but it is leather/alcantara, not all alcantara. Should be the same price as the BOSS wheel.

Your old GT Premium Wheel

Once people start getting their Boss steering wheels delivered and swap them out, PM Me if you want to sell your stock premium gt leather wrapped wheel, i will be interested. I want the one with the regular stitching, not the grabber blue or anything. I have a base model GT.

If the price stays the same I can't think of a reason not to. Some days where it was crazy hot you grab that leather wheel and it's HOT. This is super comfy. The feel is so nice. That being said it is a bit on the slippery side and that would be the only con to it. But it's just something you need to get used to.

Ordered mine on July 5th to replace the awful base GT wheel. Spoke with Nick today at Tousley and he says mine is in and will ship out on 7-12. For the price, this wheel is a steal. Won't be long before Ford jacks this one up in the $300 range.

Do you have to call Tousley Ford to order one? because when you put the part number in online it says "no parts found"

I did the same and couldnt find it online. Find the number for Tousley and call the parts dept and ask for Nick. Tell him you want to order the Boss steering wheel. He will know exactly what youre talking about. $143.26 plus shipping.

I got mine last Friday and I am having it installed this week. Will disconnecting the battery erase my tune?
