Air Conditioning swap/cruise swap?

I just purchased a 1996 F-350 PSD auto to swap over the interior and some other misc. stuff over to my 1994 Dually
F-350 psd 5 speed. I see that everyone is putting the steering wheel cover out of the cruise truck and installing it into the non cruise truck. Will this work for the 5speed? Also has anyone ever swapped the ac from on truck to another. The truck I purchased was an xlt and since all the ac parts are good I wouldn't mind switching it into my xl truck. The xlt was hit hard and is rusty so it is not salvageable where as my xl is rust free mainly and has under 91k on it.

the cruse can be swapped and so can the ac.... BUT... ac being swaped into a non ac truck is very intaled and comlicated. lots of parts, lines, and fire wall modifications i think.

That's what I was wondering, I've done it once before and had to modify the fire wall on an older Chevy and that I'd imagine was a more simple system.

yes cruise is easy to swap. install the horn pad with cruise buttons. connect the wires, then find the plug near the IDM and jump it and presto you have cruise. i don't know about firewall mods, but i agree with frank lots of work for the AC. condenser, heater box, compressor, bracket that holds the compressor, PS, and Vacuum pump, new belt, and the controls at the very least

Does anyone have ACTUAL experience with this? I'm interested in doing an AC swap as well since I dont have any AC system at all. It looks like, from pictures, that no lines go into the firewall, but I could be wrong.

I would assume that there would be some wiring that would need to be gone through. I'm hoping that Ford was smart and simply included standard wiring on all models so controls would be just plug and play (almost).

Pretty straight forward swap

You need A/C compressor
Lines
Heater box and associated A/C pieces
Heater control from A/C truck
Takes about 4-6 hours

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
