I can get a steering wheel from a Explorer from 2017 with heater and paddles for my Explorer (2014 w/o heater and paddles)
My question, what will i need for activate the heater and the paddles (ForScan and UCDS are available) and will my Airbag fit on the new steering wheel?

Did you ever attempt the swap? I've been curious about steering wheel swaps, I'm not a fan of the thin wheel and was wondering if anyone has attempted it. I'm curious if there are any other wheels out there that would work.

I looked into replacing my F150 steering wheel (my 2016 Explorer Sport has heated), and had to get a Platinum or Raptor wheel. BUT... the biggest issues were all the PCMs and harnesses that needed to be replaced, to recognize this new heating element. Turns out nearly impossible (not just simple turn on option in Forscan).
