Hi All,

First post on the forums, so figure we'll make it a good one. Got the raptor steering wheel swapped with functional paddles thanks to BoostedGreyGooseDesigns and a prototype harness from him.

Below is a little write up from install. (I wrote this up for another purpose in a pdf prior, so sorry for all the captions inbedded in the pics*)
As always, before completing work like this...disconnect the battery.

Give a follow on instagram to show some support...gonna be working on some other better mods here in the future.

Repeat disassembly steps to reassemble.

If you choose to not swap over the steering controls and use the ones that come on the raptor wheel, Forscan updates should be made to the SCCM to enable the steering wheel controls. There is a left and right steering wheel control line that will need adjusted. This will vary depending on what model Bronco you have. You can disassemble the controls and swap over the original, but I did not at this time. I was able to enable everything on my model.


Here's a little teaser pic. hopefully we get the 12" screen working next.

I'd love to have the paddle shifters, but personally I just can't justify paying $1100+ for the steering wheel.
Either way, very cool!

Yep, would like the paddles but don't care for the striped wheel @ $1100+. Nice job though 🤠

Is it possible to install the Raptor paddle shifters on the non-Raptor steering wheel?
You’d still have to buy a raptor steering wheel. Can’t get the paddle shifters separately.

Very cool!!

if I had an automatic I would seriously consider this... although the $1000 price and the carbon fiber look (which I don't like personally, but guessing I'm in the minority) is definitely a deterrent.

If it also enabled someone to upgrade to a heated steering wheel it would probably be a lot most justifiable from a cost perspective.
heat is an option and will be added; just need to confirm a few things. Clockspring needs purchased at min to accommodate for the wiring.

Does the steering input button work? Such that you can be in normal goat mode but engage the tighter steering input that comes on with Sport mode?

Just wanted to know if the core is identical between these steering wheels.

If I decide to make this mod, I think I will be able to find a buyer for the Raptor steering wheel sans the paddle shifters. Some people don't want to mess with wiring.

Cores are not exactly the same. The mould on the backside is slightly different.

Does it mean the paddle shifters can't be installed on the regular steering wheel?

This is the reason I'm following. Paddles do nothing for me, but the heat is a must.

I've done this on my LWN Colorado, where the heat circuit was installed but not from the column to wheel, so it only needed a heated wheel (from an Acadia, that needed to be dyed black, rewired with a different harness, long story...) and the clockspring with the heat circuit. Since the heat activate button was on the wheel, it was primarily those two things. From what I've read or been able to find, the HVAC panel will need to be swapped with the Lux panel with wheel heat, as well, for the switch to activate it.

The paddles are built into the mould of the wheel. If anything you pull the base wheel plate on the front and front buttons and swap those over. If you pull the raptor buttons located on the bottom off, there will be a reveal left where those buttons were.
