Did you ever figure this out? The steering wheel on my 01 X is badly worn out and a visual upgrade would be nice.

just for a correct answer, no the 08+ steering wheel will not be a direct bolt on swap.. our trucks use a splined shaft while the newer ones use a hexagonal shaft..

Now a newer model (04+) f150 steering wheel is the same spline count and will swap over but from there its a matter of wiring which will get tricky since you have air bag and stuff like that coming in..

i'm sure someone has "made this fit" by using a larger washer and nut...then there's the matter of wiring up the airbag...

Yeah wiring air bags is something I personally avoid like the plague. Literally wiring a load of explosives... It may blow up when you don't need it , or may not blow up when you need it. The thought of it makes me nervous...

Its not that bad! LOL. As long as you take your time and do it correctly (disconnect the battery, splice the wires and connect and coat them accordingly), you will be fine. I've done it for 3 of my cars in the past and luckily, have never needed them to deploy but I also have never had them deploy unnecessarily
