Default Install Cruise Control?

Hey, so I've been doing more highway driving and have decided I want cruise control. What would this entail? I know Ford likes to use 1 wiring harness per vehicle, so can I get a steering wheel with the buttons and plug-and-play?

unfortunately its not.

the factory kit cost 350-400 dollars depending if they can find it because it was discontinued. there is alot of work that goes into it but it is actually pretty simple just have to make sure all the parts are there.

Hmm, well I think I'll do it when I do my V8 swap since I'll be changing to an Explorer wiring harness anyway. Thx for the link y'all.

yeah, sorry for the confusion. when i got my ranger it did not have the factory cruise and i did not want to spend the money on an aftermarket janky pos so i went to the dealership and ordered their kit. where you get a new steering wheel. the clockspring and the harnesses,servo and cable. it was close to 400 dollars. Ford has since stopped making that kit available for the general public to buy and install. I know i could have saved some money on my cruise control but i wanted that factory look to it. plus my brother is a ford master mechanic, so for a 12 pack he came over and installed it.
