Next u will need a stock oem cruise servo with cable and a master brake cylinder with the cruise control input plug, and a steering wheel clockspring and cruise buttons....my stock steering column wasnt tilt..so i just swapped in a whole column with tilt and everything.

Your best bet for all this is your local junkyard...pull from a ranger or explorer.
It's that easy then? Let me ask can i add cruise pods and the different clock spring to my steering wheel? For the record it has tilt.

Thanks!

The plastic housing around the steering wheel is different...its cut lower for the pods...u will have to cut yours or get the plastic housing from one with the pods....and u still need the clockspring.....

----------

The junk yards around me wouldnt let me just take parts from the column...so I had to buy a whole column...and i just swapped it in...

Hey Glenn, do you know if it changed for newer model, I have a 2010 and I have access to parts at the junkyard. I have FX4 steering wheel from a 2008 (15$ worth the risk) but now I dont know what I need. If anybody has a link for the wiring diagram that would be nice, I might just go buy the book.

I dont know.
All I know is from 95-04 the steering columns and airbags are all the same..except in 01 they put a blue oval emblem on the airbag instead of just the engraving.
And to check if u are prewired for cruise look by the wimdshield water reservoir for a harness clipped to the fender...

So I stoped at the wreckyard today and the fx4 08 cc servo is on the same spot passenger fender but the brake master does not have the connection or an extantion. They had a 05 in the lot to and this one had it on the brake master. So I guess they changed something, in my 2010 does not seem to be prewire to the fender unless its hidding somewhere else. Let me know if you find more info since your closer to mine.

Is there a way to just put on new buttons for the cruise on a 2001? It has cruise but the internals to the buttons are missing/worn. Not to mention the buttons themselves are almost completely torn. Any thoughts?

Im not sure if you can just replace the button but you can get the whole wheel assembly at a wreckyard for fairly cheap.

I just took mine off, they were torn and all fukd up. I don't use cruise control ever. And you can't even notice the open spot where they went.
