I KNOW THAT THE TRD STEERING WHEEL W/AIR BAG DOES NOT HAVE A LOCATION FOR THE CRUISE CONTROL SWITCH.HAS ANY ONE TRIED TO MOUNT THE FACTORY CRUISE SWITCH IN THE STEERING COLUMN COVER BEHIND THE WIPER SWITCH?ARE THERE ANY AFTERMARKET CRUISE SWITCHES THAT WILL WORK WITH THE FACTORY TOYOTA CRUISE SYSTEM?

THANKS FOR ANY INPUT

Re: Re: Trd Steering Wheel And Cruise Control

Hi Chip. Long time since we spoke. Hope all is well with you in this new year!

Elm - I've driven with the TRD blck/blue wheel for over a year, and have never regretted losing cruise. Ryan Hawkins just installed his new black/black TRD wheel, and I bet he's come up with a way to retain cruise. Reach out to him and see what he has to say about it.

So far the new year is treating me well. I'm off to Hawaii Monday on a 4~5 day business trip, hoping to meet up with Ced again if he has some free time.

The RSP is looking great John. I love the chrome TRD brace, and I may have to copy you and send one to CalChrome. :)

Take care.

I haven't gotten around to it yet. After the I've been too busy try to make money.

It hooking up the CC will be really straightfoward you won't even need to cut any wires, just push the horn wire lead out of the harnesses and then slip it into the one with the CC. The question is how to best mount it. The CC "swith" itself has bracket that holds it into the steering wheel so its just a matter of fining a suitable location to mount it and then trimming the cover.

I just haven't had the time to take off the cover look at the steering column, but when I do I will document everything. I have gotten used no CC, but would like to have the use of it eventually.

Maybe I'll try this next weekend since everyone has been asking. The wheel only took 20 minutes to install, but I'll assume that this project will take a few hours. (at least the first time)

After some searching through parts calalogs i came across a suitable cruise switch.I'ts used on the dealer installed corolla systems. It would mount on the drivers side steering column.The only thing need to do is drill a 7/16 hole in the plastic cover at any location you desire.IE: lower left in front of the H/L switch,or behind the H/L switch.Then spices back into factory harness.I'm ordering one tonight and will keep you posted on install instructions,pictures,part#'s.

Please Please post some pics. I'd like to see the black/black steering wheel.

very nice.

How much did it cost you? And where did you get it?
It will run you $800 and unless you go to Japan, the only way you're going to get you hands on one is through MVP. It looks awesome, and I expected it to. But it feels way better than I expected when you're driving. The stock steeringwheel feels like a clumsy piece of crap in comparison now.

Brit,

Yep, my car is an auto and its faster than your 6-speed. And faster than Jack's too. :p

John,

The black has normal leather, but all of the color ones have the perforation. The red stitching does look very nice, but I'm not ready to change out all of my hoses to red or anything. :p

Hope all is well.

It feels much more solid and may be a little smaller but I;m not sure. You can hold onto it with a much more confident grip, when you hold it at 10 and 2, your hands wrap around it perfectly.

It is a racing steering wheel with the safety of an airbag. The best of both worlds.:D

I heard the airbag will not work with pre-97 models, and it's debatable on 97/98's. What's the verdict on this?
