Did the dealer not give you the cupholder inserts? What do you mean by hard wheel?

I hope this was used. I'd be hopping mad if it was a new truck delivered to me in that condition. Although being a 2019, that's awfully fast for one of the inserts to go missing already.

Yeah, I know it's just a rubber insert, but things like this make me wonder what else was missed.

i keep one in one cup holder and the other in the center console to hold junk in (i.e. lighter, knife, mace, window breaker, flint & steel...)

I feel ripped off - I only got one cup holder! Although mine was used... 😂
I'm at minimum the third owner of my 2004, but mine had both cup holder inserts. My 1998 Frontier has one. My 1988 Mazda B2200 truck had none until I made some custom ones.

I remove the front one for my water bottle, and flip it upside down to function as a “lid” for the other one closest to the elbow rest. Keeps it pine needle/dog hair free.

Steering wheel cover may do the trick for you.

I've never thought about the steering wheel being hard. . .but I've driven cars with wooden steering wheels I suppose.

There are leather steering wheel covers available that you permanently attach to the wheel with a needle and thread, and the end result is a softer wheel with an almost OEM look. They're super time consuming to install, but they look way better than the covers you slip over the rim.

I installed one several years ago on my Olds Ciera, and I was really happy with the results. If you're curious, you can take a look at the install thread I created on another forum:

I bought my truck from Carmax and as I was test driving it I noticed that the cup holder inserts were missing. Thankfully there was another Frontier on the lot and the salesman let me grab those. Easy thing to overlook!

That turned out really good. How long did it take to install?

I think they're worth the extra effort over a slip-on cover, no question.
It took a good couple hours. I did buy the wrong color to match the sand but I didn’t care after a while. They don’t have instructions to cinch up the cover on the backside of the spokes, so I just stitched up behind them with the extra thread. When I asked their CS, they indicated they could send me double sided tape. That’s janky.
