Awesome, let us know! I am headed there tomorrow as well and it looks like the newest one there is an 02 sadly. I'll check the 99's and back for cruise functions though. If they have a 5-pin plug on the clockspring, it'll work.

That's the white, round plastic module behind the steering wheel that is visible when you remove it. It contains a coil of wire that tightens/loosens as you turn your wheel left or right to keep the connection to your airbag and cruise controls (if equipped).

Yeah my cruise control buttons on the right, the RSM, set accel, and coast broke. Its just hanging on by the wires. Costs like $100 some dollars for a new one. Rather switch my steering wheel and get all of it in 1

Got mine for $65 plus shipping on eBay, I believe the guy had several left. Normally go for about $350ish from Ford. Even came in the sealed OEM box with an extra Torx head bolt plus cruise controls!

You'll need an 04-06 airbag too. They only came in single stage models (1 plug) back then so no worries about incompatibility. I got mine for about $140. If you find both at the JY... then you really scored!

The airbag is what I'm having a hard time finding....every single one I found on Ebay looks a little worn or sketchy.

Yes, I get very picky when it comes to my truck!

Yeah, that's where my search started - however, my online genuine O.E.M. Ford dealer doesn't even sell them though.

Feel free to check at your work though....

You'll need a steering wheel puller with two "hooks" (or jaws) to pull the old one from the top and bottom, and the same one to remove the newer one by two holes on the top right and bottom left corners with the shaft. I rented mine from O'Reilly's.
