    Let me explain first why I am asking this question.
    I currently have an 07 TRD Offroad AC that has steering wheel audio controls. I needed more room so I just purchased today an 08 with the same specs minus the steering wheel audio controls..

    My ruff plan is to swap the steering wheels so I can retain the ability of changing the volume and not work to hard leaning the one foot to the head.. I like having them, and the next owner will have to deal with not having them.. I am use to having them for 5yrs..

    I did a search and didn't come up with anything..

    So the question is had anyone taken off their steering wheel for any reason.. I can wrench I just was wondering about the airbag, do I just pull the batt and I am good to go? Is there any specialty bolts, ect...:confused:

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    I'm going to suggest you'll need a new clock spring, too. There are different part numbers for steering wheel controls.

    I want to change my wheel because I like a spongy foam wheel that is about a 1 inch diameter (No I will not use a steering wheel cover). My question is, do I need to worry about the airbag not being hooked up on an 05 Taco? Or will it cause an idiot light on the dash?
    BTW an idiot light will make for a "fail" on my emissions test.
