Raptor Steering Wheel Swap

Anyone know if the Raptor steering wheel with fit on the Superduties? I like the steering wheel bolster and thickness. The steering wheels for on the SD 17s look the exact same as the Ĺ tons. Ive seen youtube vids of F150 swaps with retaining paddle shift capabilities. Thanks in advance!

I'm intrested in this also. From what I've seen. I believe the swap is just as easy as on the f150. I'd love to see someone make the paddles work on a SD. That would pretty much seal the deal with me.

I just bought an F150 leather wheel to replace my plastic one, they look identical. Hopefully i'll have time next week to swap them and confirm.

On topic of steering wheel...can you add a heated steering wheel to a previously unequiped truck? My lariat doesn't have but really wish it did.

My XLT was not equipped with the proper wiring for a heated steering wheel. Iím sure it can be done but itís not a simple plug and play situation

I'm not sure on the work-around needed to add heat to the steering wheel, that's a good question.
Here's some folks that added heat to their steering wheels on an F150: Looks like its about $500 in parts

Here's the vid and write-up on the Raptor steering wheel on an XLT '15-17 with functioning paddles:

Not sure. But I can tell you that if that red maker is off to one side (yes even after an alignment) it'll drive you nuts until its fixed. Been there done that.

No doubt! So I got in touch with a forum member (16boostedgreygoose) on the F150 forum who is the mastermind behind this mod. He sells wiring harnesses for paddle shifter functionality which makes the process plug and play. The wiring harness is NOT necessary but I don't want to mess with the wiring. So I purchased a wiring harness and ordered the Raptor steering wheel as well. I have a feel I won't like the red stripe so I ordered some leather paint to delete it.
More to come in the ensuing weeks!...

This swap has been done on the current generation F150`s and they also got the paddle shifters to work so being that SD`s and F150`s share basically the same cab, i`d say that the swap would be the same.

I don`t want to cause any problems by saying any names on this forum but this swap was detailed on a forum that i`m sure you can figure out the name of.

Have a great day.

Boy. those paddle shifters would be a world of fun to drive with the 6.7. Just sayin'. Sometimes I wish I had the console shifter in my truck just to make it easier to manually shift.

I went through this last year, but from what I gathered it would seem you need a new clock spring as well. Its still on my todo list, so I'm interested to see if the harness will still work on the F250 transmission as it would the F150. Thanks for being the guinea pig!
