Well, if you want to fit the wheel, you need to either split the columns, and fit the top half of an EF/L column, or the whole thing and matching rack.

If you want to airbag to work, you'll need to fit an EF/L dash loom atleast, with the airbag module and sensors, dont forget the column loom and clock spring, and i'm not entirely sure, but you may need the ecu?

Think about it, is it really worth it?

Can you put the EL top half of the column into the EB bottom and still keep the EB plastic surround?

I dont think so, as i tried the opposite by trying a EF surround on the EB column and it dont fit properly, or even close to.

Any XH series II without an Airbag system. The Airbag cover is simply the outside cover, with a Longreach badge over the SRS emblem.

Why OH Why would you want to put a Bus Steering Wheel with a Big Puffy centre in your Boxcar? There are many many alternatives available in the aftermarket.

You can buy brand new Sports Steering Wheels off Ebay for under $100. Just get a boss kit and a wheel and away you go.

However, whilst I am not a fan of the EF/EL/AU type steering wheel, you may like them, so as it is your car, do whatever makes you happy.
