Will a leather Tacoma or 4Runner steering wheel swap into 2013 FJ?

Considering a steering wheel swap to something a little thicker and nicer than my current 2013 FJ stock wheel but want to stay OEM Toyota. A TRD 4Runner wheel would be awesome.

Wondering if the later Tacoma/4Runner wheel is compatible in the FJ... is it even the same spline? Will the electronics connect and relevant buttons work? Most importantly, will the corresponding airbag function properly with the correct connector?

Wondering if anybody has any experience putting a nicer OEM Toyota steering wheel in their FJ. Was going to call the dealer in the morning but figured you all would have some great input.

I'm going to guess that the 4Runner wheel will be the closest fit, but I don't know about the connectors.
Only way to know is to pull yours off and compare them.

If the wheel fits you could always cut and join the right connectors if the functions match. That's a nicer wheel, is it smaller too?

I just added a perforated leather cover to mine, makes it very much nicer and the perforations match the dash too which was a bonus

I believe diameter is about the same. I like your perforated leather setup though, where did you get yours? It actually looks well made and nicely fitted.

Sarah that matches up perfectly! That one thing I really do like about the FJ interior dash is all the perforations

Re: Will a leather Tacoma or 4Runner steering wheel swap into 2013 FJ?

The leather came from eBay, seller was really helpful, asked for dimensions and sent a perfect fit. I did swap out the thread for some of my saddler's stuff and it took a couple of false starts to get the hang of lacing and getting tight around the spokes not perfect but very happy with it for 15. Happy to buy and post across to anyone who wants one if the seller won't

2013 FJ's were available with either the standard or leather steering wheel from Toyota depending on the trim level and model.
standard steering wheel: 45100-35460-B0
leather wrapped wheel: 45100-35471-B2

https://parts.toyotaofdallas.com/aut...-and-trim-scat

The leather one is quite a bit more expensive but it would fit for sure.

2013 Canadian FJ Cruiser 6MT with offroad package, rock rails, hitch receiver, cargo cover, cargo net, rear door storage nets, spare tire cover, hood deflector, OEM block heater, and TRD shift knob. OEM Audio Plus stereo upgrade.

Did anyone ever attempt this? Will the controls and airbag from the 4Runner plug and play in the FJ?
