Stupid question:

Does the airbag go away with the new TRD steering wheel?

Silvino, we cannot confirm/deny that they actually work, but they are supposed to have ones in that plug into the harness and "work".

Yes the air bag is connected.I ran the SRS system thru the Toyota hand held Scan tool.I had no error codes at all,and no "AB" check light on dash after install.I didn't even have to reset anything.All was basicly plug and play except for a few minor modifications:smile:

Besides the cool emblem on the hub,the wheel is a tad smaller in diamenter.Also the thickness is larger on the TRD rim.It has contoured "grips"at the 9 and 3 o'clock position.

The 98 had a preforated leather cover where as the TRD is smooth and with red stiching.

At a list price of almost 1500$$$$ for the 98 assembly,The TRD wheel is a bargan at $800 bucks.

{p.s. my 98 stock mint,perfect wheel w/ab is NOT for sale!}

Do you have any close-up pics of the cruise control stalk on the TRD wheel?

Flavio

I"m going to the SEMA show this weekend.I"ll take some more close ups on this last roll of film I have and post early next week.

I'll take the air bag off for the internal pics.

Total time involved for conversion under 1 hr.The researce for the interface A FEW DAYS!

It all looks good :)

I like how you installed your electronics on the left side, that's how I'm doing mine.

Clean ass car, hold on to it.

It all looks awesome Curt.

Help me out here though...your math is telling me I might need another black TRD steering wheel since the 1998 swap is so costly overall.

Anyway, I have obtained the following measurements:

1993-1997 stock MKIV steering wheel: 14.5 inch diameter
1998 stock MKIV steering wheel: 14 inch diameter

Are you telling me that the TRD steering wheel has a 13.5 inch diameter? Also, please elaborate on what made up the cruise control swap to the TRD wheel...this is of particular interest to me! Thanks very much. :)

Only for 98' you need to cut the air bag plug from stock air bag and splice onto the TRD wheel.{squib change for 98 only}

For the 93.5-97 the air bag plug is identical.

The cruise control plug is not affected ,98 reuse cruise switch.ON 93.5-97 Use the 98 cruise switch #84630-14130 L=$131.49 C=$92.49

To install the cruise switch.

A] Locate and dremel the identical square hole on the right side of the strg wheel housing.[the size of the felt square gasket 1.5"x1.5"]

B]Remove the cruise switch {2 screws] and the felt gasket for the hole.[off old wheel]

c] Hot glue the felt gasket to the opening of the hole you just cut.

D] Install the cruise switch by the top screw only,bottom one leave off.{no place to put it}

E] On the TRD air bag remove the white plastic cover that holds the plug in place.{don't need}

F] Install the stg wheel on car and tighten nut,plug in cruise control switch and ground wire for horn.

G] Plug in the air bag connector and install air bag{3screws}

H] The yellow air bag wire has enough slack so that you can move it off to the upper left side of the housing. The air bag is a tight fit so that when its installed,the back of the housing is resting on top of the cruise switch.This keeps the switch in place and won't move,even though its only held in by one screw.

Feel free to call me if I haven't explained this that well.

If the weather is nice for Dayton ,I'll have the dawg with me and I can open for inspection.

Otherwise I'll bring 03 TRD MATRIX XRS with.

The dash bezels I masked off with 3m tape and shot with silver Aluminum spray paint from Menard's.

I did this so that they would match the APexi gauge bezels.
