Default Steering Wheel swap with Audio Controls

Guys, I know some older threads were out there about swapping steeering wheels between older models of vehicles and all, but does anyone no for certain if the wiring is already on the steering colum for the audio controls, even though my truck did not come with the steering wheel audio controls. I would like to buy the leather wrapped steering wheel for my model but the dealer wasn't certain if the harness is there or not. Any ideas?

Thanks

It is a 2011 2500 Power Wagon

So apparently there are not a lot of people with knowlege on this topic as there have bee 35 views but not a single response, but I do have a small update. I removed the center dash in preperation to replace the factory radio, and I noticed a wire bundle going to the lower switch cluster (where the electric seat controls would be), that does not connect to anything. It has a dummy connector place holder over that switch cluster area. I would bet my life that the wires are intended for the heated steering wheel switch that would be there, if I had the option. If I have that cluster (assuming I am right) it really makes me feel like the rest of the wires would be there for the audio controls.

Thoughts..... anyone?

Throw a brother a bone. If you got nothing, at least lie... make me feel good!

I did it on my 07, it's under audio controls when you look under my post's. Hopefully it'll help you a little.

I've got nothing but from what I've seen the wiring harnesses are all the same and it appears that it should be a plug and play...but...there's always that but....lol...it appears that in most cases if you add a factory option to a vehicle that doesn't have that option, you need to have the computer "flashed" in order for it to work. And here is were the problem lies...the dealers don't have all these updates and most seem to be unwilling to find them.
