F 150 steering wheel upgrade

So, here is my next project I want to try. I found an f150 steering wheel that is carbon fiber top and bottom, awesome! It has the same splines as my ugly worn out steering wheel I have now. The only issue I am having is how the buttons would work? I don’t have stereo controls now but I would love to add them when I change the steering wheels out. I wanted to see if anyone knows how many buttons the clock spring on a 2003 f350 Lariat will work with? I looked both up online and found the same part number for both the f150 and f350 (Part Number: 14A664)? Don’t know if that means they coincide or not? Or maybe I am missing something else that changes?
Also if anyone has them, or can get them I need the wiring diagrams for a 2005 f 150 Lariat and a 2003 f350 Lariat?

Good luck. I am trying to get this done as well. I sourced a complete 2006 F150 KR wheel bought all the buttons, airbag and rear cover after reading that the splines are the same and that these would work but 08+ would not because they have a hex shaft. Well that is simply not the case. The shafts are the same diameter but the splines are NOT the same. Pulled my old wheel off and the new wheel will not drop on the steering shaft. First the keyed spline is in a different place so it clocks the F150 steering wheel about 35 deg clockwise but will not drop on anyway. The splines are different and the clock spring has the wiring turned 90 deg in a different place. I cut the back cover on the wheel to make the wiring run through the wheel but the clock spring won't mate up on the back side of the F150 steering wheel frame. Not saying it can't be done but it looks like this is going to take some fairly serious work to make it work. I've got a bit $ tied up in all these parts so I am going to give it a go when I get some time but this is no drop in swap as I was led to believe. Airbag wiring is different, clock spring is different, steering shaft is different and all button wiring is different. Wiring should not be that big of a deal with schematics but the other things will need some work. If anyone has actually gotten this to work and would share what they did boy that would be a time saver.
