Heres a pic of each steering wheel. The left is for the 04-08 rams, and the right is for the 02-03 rams. As far as being interchangable, i dont know but am interested to know because i want to change my 03 wheel to the 04-08 or the 09+ wheel.
I like the look of the 09+ better, but it's a better bet the 04-08 wheel will be a bolt in. Clockspring part numbers are not the same though. Should physically bolt in, just a matter of hooking up the airbag and radio controls (if you have them).
I wouldn't doubt it. There's an 09 wheel I've been eyeing up, it's a little pricey but would look so much better. Only problem is getting an airbag to hook up right. If not, then I have a NIB spare steering wheel to use when this one is totally AFU.
That's a good comparable pic. I'm going to look into this, I'd like to do it. Forgot to see if it has steering wheel controls on the back, hope so, I really miss them from my last Ram. There are some good articles on hooking up stereo controls if you dont' have them.
