So it appears the 2007-11 wheel will bolt up to my 1996 truck. I am wondering if the cruise control buttons/ wiring will be compatible. I read the airbag in the 2007+ trucks are double stage, and that you need to select one of the airbag stages to run in a single stage airbag older truck. "Single stage airbags usually have 2 wires going to them while Double stage usually have 3 or more. While a single stage fires the same at any speed, a dual stage will fire a weaker charge at lower speeds and a more powerful charge at higher speeds. When swapping in a dual stage airbag in your single stage truck, you must decide for yourself what stage you want it to fire at. "
