    Why would you want to?

        What about a telescoping steering column from a corvette?

            NVR2LO also shortened his stock steering column to fit his custom dash.

                Gm columns are made to colapse during a front impact. All that was done to mine was the shift linkage was cut off, pushed in the column the desired amount and rewelded the linkage. Good luck!

                  seems simple enough

                  But 95TahoeSS,

                  Why do you want to do this if you dont mind me asking, what benefits would it serve you?

                  Thanks AntiBling for the sig!

                    He was asking about custom dashes before, so he may have something along the lines of what NVR2LO did in mind.

                        I want to do this to gain more room. I just bought a 92 single cab and I want to totally gut it and redo the interior with custom dash, gauges and seats. I need to move the steering column cuz I'm a big boy and after I get the buckets in there I'm gonna need all the extra room. Plus I think it sticks out too far anyhow.

                            Yes...that seems much easier than going to the gym or taking a walk or not eating MickyD's.

                              or maybe thats not it at all. Maybe its because gm made the steering wheel in a position where you could drive it from the tailgate. it looks gay and the steerig wheel is right in your face
