Yep, found one with switches already mounted, but one didn't work. The harness I bought just plugged straight in, no modifications needed. I did notice that the wiring to the airbag on later models is different then my '03. And in one pic it looked like the cruise control buttons do not have the same connectors. So that might be why the different part numbers.

I PM'ed Hersh and for now on I will be getting my factory parts from him. He gave me the best deal on some parts and great communication. He emailed me back stating that one part had to be ordered and will send the package out when it comes in.

You cannot just buy the housing by it's self. You have to buy the whole steering wheel. I bought a used steering wheel for $50 and it came with the buttons. The wiring had to be replaced but that didn't cost that much. So if you are talented you can just just the holes. I felt it would be safer for me and my truck to get a wheel....

Doesn't the Durango use the same radios? So I figure that the wiring should be real close to each other. The easy way to tell if my '03 was wired was by looking at a wire connector under the steering colume. It was the white plut toward the drivers door. If it had all spaces taken up with wires then the dash was already wired for controls.

I would agree. You might want to do a little digging, but the durango I used to have had the same radio that the Ram did. Now, the pin in the cluster behind the guages, that will probably be different.

I would have to say the Durango is most likely gonna be the same as the ram or even the Dakota ..... or you could do a search on the Durango threads and see if there is anyone that has done the steering wheel controls already

I have an 04 Durango and was thinking about doing this mod. Haven't actually looked into it yet but am interested. One of my future projects.
You can get the manual at www.2ndgendurango.com/Stuff.htm

If you can find a copy of the service manual and determine where the MUX wire goes, it MIGHT. The reason I say MIGHT is because I haven't looked at the wiring diagram to see if it is designed the same as the 2002-2005. If so, then I don't see a problem with it.

Go look at an 06 with the controls and see if they look like the old ones. You might be able to ask the guys at Archer dodge (through this site) what the part numbers for the 06 controls are. If they are the same, then I don't see a problem. Explain to Hersh (the guy from Archer Dodge) what you want to do and he'll help you out on part numbers and will sell you the parts VERY cheap.

From what I see in the Manual this WILL work on an 06 as well .... go to hemitruckclub.com and look on the left side .. you will the service manual for the 06 .. Download it .. go to page 1324 .. that is the start page for the Audio Controls.
Then you will need to go to the Wiring Diagram .. which is pictured below for your 06 Ram.
