I found a steering wheel for sale and I need help before it’s gone. I want to know if a gen 3 raptor steering wheel would fit on my 2022 bronco wildtrak fully loaded. I have all the options that this has so all the buttons would work. My 2 main questions is would the paddle shifters work and would the wiring just plug in from this steering wheel into the broncos wiring?

The connector is the same, but the pins may be in different locations. So there’s a chance the controls won’t work without moving some around.

The paddles won’t work at all without additional wiring.

Donald at Dallas Custom can rewrap your stock wheel in the Raptor scheme / style. He does excellent work has done a few wheels for me over the years.

The main thing is that I wanted paddle shifters and I would only buy the steering wheel if I could use paddles

You'd need to do some additional wiring.

Not difficult wiring, but it isn't plug-and-play. You'll need to run some additional wiring from the clockspring to the PCM/TCS harness

Well our Broncos do not come with paddle shifters, so that should clue you into the feasibility.

Also this is my opinion, but paddle shifters on a SUV with 10 gears is pointless.

Any tutorials or videos to help? I work on wiring but I wouldn’t know what I’m wiring to.

You might buy it, if it's a good deal, then work on getting it to work (start a thread?), and if it doesn't work, sell it.

I use the plus and minus buttons on the shifter when I want to make my car loud. I have a ford performance borla exhaust and it sounds so good especially when I have my car in manual mode. I would rather have paddles though.

Idk if I can sell it the same price I bought it for. I want to see if anyone has done it before before buying it so I have somewhere to start

I always use engine braking while driving down steep and long slopes. It saves brakes from overheating. I would prefer to have paddle shifters instead of the +/- button.

None that I'm aware of for the Bronco. BUT I'm a manual transmission guy, so my level of caring is basically zero and I admittedly I haven't even looked.

It's a popular modification on the F-150 though, and just by looking at the part/wiring diagrams for the Bronco, the modification process should be extremely similar. May help you with your search.
