Installed a steering wheel from a 14 KL in my 03 KJ, it took minor modification,

Here’s a before from when I first inherited the KJ and had just added a new head unit and some mopar kicker speakers

So my 03 didn’t have any steering wheel controls so I deleted them off the KL wheel with some high temp thermoplastic to make a delete panel then painted them Using duplicolor Jeep Radiant Silver metallic to match my grille and rims

Next I added a new airbag ordered from Mopar that matched the vin from the KL at the Junk yard I got the wheel from

When installing the new airbag I had to splice the factory horn harness from my KJ into the horn connector from the KL. Then I added a ground to the steel part of the wheel since the KL horn button did not ground in the same way that the KJ horn button did

Now I have a working horn and an updated look on the interior of my Liberty, I also redid my headliner and I’ll post pics of that tomorrow after I get off of work!

So with the wiring I have no idea tbh, more than likely no because they did change the way it’s wired between certain years.

And I got the actual steering wheel at my local pull a part, and the airbag I got from OEMUsedAuto

The silver bits on it I made myself using thermoplastic moulded into the shape and radiant silver oem paint, because on my FIL’s challenger the factory “button delete” panels are like that
