Will Taurus SHO steering wheel swap onto Taurus PI W/ no issues?

Post by Soda_can_dan » Sat Nov 24, 2018 1:34 pm

Hey, I just came across a brand new SHO steering wheel on eBay. I noticed the only differences is the Aux buttons (1,2,3 & 4). I have no use for the aux buttons as I don’t have plans to install any light packages now or in the future. I’m wondering if this would be a simple plug and play? Or would modifications be needed to the harness? Has anyone done this swap? I figured since I swapped in the center console and leather seats, that this would be a nice addition.

you're really gonna pay 565 for a standard pi steering wheel with some leather wraps?

Anything aftermarket won’t look nearly as good as oem. My PI HAS 27k miles and was only in service for 4K miles, which is like a week or two. So the cars interior is in great shape. I sourced a brand new console and leather seats from a 2017 Taurus with under 1k miles. So I need something that will match the condition of the rest of the interior. I’ve looked and haven’t found any of these steering wheels at local junk yards with low miles. I figured if I found a steering wheel with 20k miles it would run me a couple hundred bucks, double that wouldn’t kill me. Lol

It had damage to the front right fender. Only cosmetic. I’m guessing that department just sells any cars that get damaged while in service... I got a new oem fender and had my guy blend it real nice 😁

Worth it to swap the wheel man, it's the one thing you touch every second while using the car!
