Default 2005 Ranger Steering Wheel In A 1994 Ranger?

I was wondering if a 2005 Ford Ranger steering wheel would fit a 1994 Ford Ranger steering column? If not what could be done to make it work?

Got access to a welder? Haha, I'm just kidding. As far as I know, the ranger never went with a different design for steering wheel mounts. It should work. Give it a shot and keep us all informed of how it works out for you. I'd say that the main issue would be the air bag. Definately keep your battery disconnected while you are installing the new steering wheel. And if for some reason it doesn't work, it's not like you done a ton of work to discover it's different. You know?

94 doesn't have an air bag. so no worry about that. cut the plug off the new airbag and reinstall it.

i don't know if it will work. it will all come down to whether or not the spline size is the same. if it physically will go on, getting your horn to work will be a challenge. 95+ use a clocks springs to power things like the horn, air bag, and cruise. i think the 94 and older just uses contacts on the back of the wheel for the horn and cruise.

if you have the wheel and have the time, try it. worst case it's not going to fit.
