if your steering wheel says Mazada on it then someone changed it.......or someone was on POT that put it in at the factory.........they would bolt right up, but you would need to get the airbag also.........

so your truck has a rebuilt title then? were you the one who owned it when it was rebuilt? if you are then you should've said something when you took it back...

nice...........i dont see how they can legally give it a clear title after it has been totaled.....if that was the case, then all those Katrina vehicles could have a clean title........if that is true, the next vehicles i buy WILL come with a Carfax and a call to the previous owner....

cool....i bet it was a minor crash.......i dont think they are allowed legally to resale a totaled vehicle with a clear title, unless the guy who sold it was the legal owner when it was recked....if the insurance ever takes possession of a vehicle then it will have a salvage title...

not hard.....i believe there is 4 screws that hold the air bag in on the sides of the wheel behind the cruise control switches(there is 2 little pop off covers and the screws are set inside the wheel..), then you will need a steering wheel puller to pop it off the column.......then just unplug any electric connections and re-install in reverse order....
