steering wheel Radio controls

Does anybody no the part number or where i can get that little piece that goes into the steering wheel to control the radio my arms get tired from reaching over to change the stations. Also is it easy to install. I already removed the cap thats there and its empty but no wiring, I have 2008 350 XLT model

I'm interested in this as well. I have the same same truck. I thought about asking the dealer but haven't had time. I thought I read somewhere that the steering wheel controls are for the audiophile or nav system Maybe someone can verify this for us?

Wow! Sounds too easy. So the wiring already exists in the steering column and is hooked up to the head unit? I'm gonna have to order the parts and try it. Thanks for the info.

Does anyone know where to get Ford parts cheap? There is on ony one dealer on my island and they are not cheap. Thanks in advance

You also need the entire harness that goes into the steering column. Its not as easy as just buying and plugging in the switch.

That particular harness does NOT come in all trucks, so the switches won't do you any good without it, so buck up and by an aftermarket unit with a remote if you want laziness..

More than likely the XLT's do NOT have the correct harness already inside them. Get the facts striaght before you start tearing it apart... You could run into some problems......
