Anyone ever swap in a steering wheel with C.C.

Anybody ever swap in a steering wheel out of a Tracker or a Sidekick that had power steering controls on the steering wheel? I want to swap in a steering wheel with buttons on it so I can run my winch & steer my rear axle with buttons right there on the steeering wheel.

come to think of it, I think you would have to swap more than the steering wheel. You have to have a way to make sure the switches have contact when the wheel is turned, like the horn

He'll need the column assembly with its harness, at least.

Right,..basically I'd need the whole column I guess [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
I haven't swapped in the rear steer axle yet for a couple reasons. 1. I've started "un-building" my Zook in an attempt to make it road worthy again. Since I don't have trailer I decided it didn't make much sense to make it a rock buggy. 2. I warped the housing on the rear axle when I was welding the truss on it (irony I know [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]) & I haven't figured out how to straighten it back out yet [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] 3. I don't want to tear apart my Zook right during wheelin season. I had the axle almost ready to go in right at the begining of spring. Not good timing IMO. 4. Last I heard Longfields were no longer being sold so I'm really worried about the stock birfs holding up to the abuse back there.
I think I'm just gonna end up going with a Sky rear axle (which I invented about a year & a half ago BTW [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) & do all my crazy stuff ie. coils, rear steer, full hydro front steer, 38's, etc. on a bare frame as a long term project & keep wheeling my little Zook on 34's [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
