What tools do I need to pull a 99 steering wheel?

I found a cruise steering wheel in good shape in the junkyard and want to go pull it today.
The truck has been sitting for a while so I DOUBT I need to worry about the airbag still having power but I'd rather play it safe.

SO, how do I make sure the airbag is dead, and how do I pull the wheel and everything needed to add cruise? I need the clockspring I think. How do you get that out?

I do have a steering wheel puller, but what else will I need to take tool wise? It's 50 miles away so I can't just run back home for anything.
Also I can't pull the column, it won't fit my E450 since it's in an F150.

I have done two but it has been awhile. From what I remember: Just a torx bolt. No puller needed. You need to pull the plastic column cover, just a few screws, and the two bolts for the airbag. Be sure to have your battery disconnected (wait 15 minutes with door or key in the on position to drain the stored energy), and airbag fuse removed.

Well thanks to the high return on scrap metal it was scrapped.
Guys, if you have ANY parts your eyeballing in the junk yard, go now.
I have been burned 3 times in 2 weeks now. I don't even recognize the yards anymore. They are crushing and scrapping EVERYTHING here.
