Does anyone know if you can swap in a 05 Ram steering wheel onto a 03 Ram truck? Will it fit? What mods have to be done? I know someone has done it. Just can't find the post... Thanks.

Yes, yes you can. All you need is a newer wheel and airbag. The newer style cruise switches plug right into the stock spots in the clockspring and work as normal. 04+ airbags are two stage (low & high speed) but the 02-03 is strictly high speed, so all you have to is plug the airbag wire from the clockspring into the black (high speed) plug on the airbag.

I was going to go with a normal 04-08 steering wheel but found out Grant makes an awesome aftermarket one that isn't an arm & leg like the discontinued LX versions. Black plug goes to black plug on airbag. I did this literally like a week or so before the seat and console swap (and lots of other upgrades I did that week) and right about that time I figured out that not only do Durangos use the same wheel, but so do Aspens:

And they have silver switches to match everything else in my interior (door panels, center bezels):

HemiLonestar What is the center console out of in your truck? How can you do an airbag delete? Is it possible to use a steering wheel that has paddle shifters?

09-12 4th gen with floor shift
Can't answer that for you, plus the answers would probably be different between PCI bus (02-05) and CAN bus (06+)
In a 3rd gen you'd most likely have to go with aftermarket for paddles.
