Steering wheel question

I remember reading in the past. That one of the members put a Rav4 steering wheel in there IS300. My question is what years? Also does the airbag by itself fit the stock IS300 steering wheel?

The wheel can be found in the 1st gen RAV4's, 6th gen Celicas, and the MkIV Supra
I believe the aforementioned Celica GTS wheel has the e-shift option also.

Thank you. About the wheel fitment. Do you know if the horn button/airbag will mount in the IS300 factory wheel?

Thanks aain. It looks like it will work. But they mention cruise control needs to be mod. They don't say what need to be moded. But it is a start.

What I gathered:
The airbag should drop in PnP.
Cruise would only need modified if you're swapping an IS wheel into an SC.

I think you're good to go!

No problem. It may be a while. Need to find the right deal for trying it.

Garage
Just did it

Honestly love how it looks, it was literally plug and play, you can use 01-03 Rav4 airbags.
