I think most will swap out fine....but you may need matching airbag and clockspring for the wheel you put on. I put a 01 on my 96

I believe the current interior has pretty much been the same since '95..up untill '03- same steering wheel, i'd think it would fit.

yea i brain farted on the airbag thing, and what interior he has...a newer steering wheel should fit...the reason i swapped mine out is because i had the xlt faux leather wrapped one and it had big spots where the leather had rubbed off. so i got one of the plastic ones from an 03 edge.
