Steering wheel swap question

I just picked up an 09 JK, it has a standard steering wheel. My previous JK a 16 JK had a steering wheel with the radio controls in the back of the steering wheel. Can I swap in a newer wheel with the radio controls and have it work properly?

Havn't tried but I doubt it. You would need the proper clockspring and I'm not sure that would fit into a 2009 steering column. I'm also not sure you could reflash can bus to accept the additional buttons and commands. You would have to research that stuff first anyway.

It should work. The horn is done thru the canbus and so are all those switches. You may or may not need a flash. The clockspring is the same for all JK's, 07-18 so that won't be an issue.

It's been done for sure. The clockspring is the same for all years. I believe there is a difference with the airbag or something. It may have to be spliced in, but I can't remember exactly. I think you're going to be out of luck on getting the radio controls to work though. The CANBUS has to be flashed from the dealer, and that option didn't exist on the earlier model JK's, so the flash doesn't exist.
