Explorer Steering Wheel Controls in a Ranger?
It was a toss-up on whether to post this question in this forum or in the Interior, Exterior, & Electrical forum, but since I didn't have the required permissions to post in that forum, here I am.
Here's the question. My 2008 Ranger XLT is great, but the only steering wheel controls it has are for the cruise control. Nowadays, steering wheel controls for audio and phone have become so common that I miss not having them on my Ranger. Has anybody successfully installed a steering wheel with audio controls from an Explorer (or any other model) into a Ranger? Switches, contacts, connectors, harnesses and all would have to be compatible between the two models, which is a longshot, but I thought I'd ask. How about an entire steering column from an Explorer (or other model) -- any cross-model compatibility there?
