2008 Escape, got all the "options" on the radio except Sync and the USB. The steering wheel does not have the volume / tuning / etc. on it. Does anyone know if I could just swap out the current one with a wheel that has these controls, or is it more complicated than that. Thanks

Read this post! You'll need to pull the head unit and take a look at one of the connectors to see if you have the wiring leading to the clockspring in the steering column.

Just remember that you'll need to power down the airbag system before removing and installing the steering wheel. I'll try to get a thread up for that.

Here's a thread to follow for depowering and repowering the airbag system.

DO NOT skip these steps before attempting to remove or install a new steering wheel.
