Question Steering wheel switches - wondering

After lots of trail driving this past weekend, it seems to me I would MUCH RATHER have the switches for the sway bar disco, lockers, and hill descent on the steering wheel instead of the stupid radio controls! That would be a great option/set up on the Rubi!

What do you all think

I don't like any steering wheel buttons myself, especially on the back of the wheel.... But I see your point.

Wouldn't having it on your steering wheel make it easier to bump by accident and disconnect while you're flying down the highway?

The computer locks them out when driving over a certain speed so it wouldn't be an issue.

Sounds like a wiring nightmare. You can experiment with them if you want, but why risk it? I doubt the buttons are wired the same way as the locker and disco.

I can see maybe wanting the locker to use a button on the steering wheel. But the disco button? I figure on a normal wheeling day, you're only going to hit it twice anyway.
