Buying 08-12 interior parts

Just purchased an 08 limited and looking to add some of the missing features. I'm looking to retrofit seat heaters and the navigation system.

I'm looking for the following components:

Media control steering wheel (tan)
Climate control with seat heaters
Navigation system
7 speaker premium sound system
Cargo area internal panel for subwoofer

Media control steering wheel (tan)
Junkyard

Climate control with seat heaters

FYI going from manual to auto climate controls is not plug and play Also not sure cars without heated
seats are prewired for them. May want to look into that but you are welcome to buy my controls

Navigation system
If it were me I would go aftermarket

7 speaker premium sound system
If it were me I would go aftermarket

Cargo area internal panel for subwoofer
Junkyard (that is where I got mine, out of a Tribute actually).

Yeah I know the climate control isn't a direct swap as it's dual temperature zone and the wiring doesn't currently exist. I mostly need the module for the heater buttons because I want them to go in the same place and look factory. It'll take some cobbling and ingenuity to frankenstein the two together properly.

The heated seats on the first gen have the switches in the seat kinda buy where the power seat switches are. Might look into that for an easier factory look setup.

I've got a tan media control steering wheel in decent shape with a couple caveats:

- just the wheel, no airbag
- I actually reused the back plastic cover (i changed my wheel to black) so you'd need to use the one you have (pretty easy swap), as all I have for you is a black one :)

PM me if interested.

Also I heartily endorse the aftermarket suggestions. I have a LOooooooong overdue report on my $100 android tablet-turned nav system that is pretty great. google maps/waze nav for avoiding traffic, onboard music via MicroSD, streaming, ODB2 monitoring (nice to look in on the hybrid system)...trail maps...alexa...steering wheel AND center console controls with shortcuts to google assistant and NAV.

I also spent about 70 0r 80 on a sent of kenwood front speakers I would call a significant upgrade from the stock limited (non nav) ones.

I've got most of this list covered now from various sources but I'd still be interested in the steering wheel of yours. Is the leather in decent shape?

Only part I seem to be unable to buy or source is the cargo area passenger side panel that's meant for a subwoofer. No matter how many pick a parts I check or times I contact a ford wrecker they never have one. If anyone has one they could possible part with I'd REALLY love to hear from you

Yeah tan leather. It think the E had about 65k on it when I pulled it out so it's certainly not new, but you have to be looking pretty close to see anything other than that inevitable gloss leather wheels get over time.

Again, just wheel; no airbag or back plastic...if you can use it I'll certainly cut you a deal as it's just been sitting around
