Default Relocate cruise switches

I just read a post from a Bronc forum that come up on Google that to relocate the cruise switches, just tap into them on the column. I know doing a diagnostic for the cruise servo,(from shop manual) one of the steps is checking horn. The switches and horn are tied in some how. Anyone know of any one doing this? Or, of the wiring for this. Could it be that simple just tapping into lower column?

IDK about tapping into the lower column, I do know that the Grant steering wheel company makes a cruise relocation kit to work with the later model trucks, they've got wheels and relocating kits for 67-96's.

NPD carries them, I'll plug the P/N into grant's website and see if I can find it there as well.

Grant has nothing on their website when searching for "Cruise Control Kit".

Some else on the Bronc site had said that about Grant. My understanding was it was pricey and I believe the switches went back on around the wheel somehow. That would take away the beauty of a nice Grant or Lacarrea. I chose Lacarrea for one it is made in Tennessee. They just have a more quaility look about them and you can get various color in the leather wraps. You can also supply your own leather and they will use that. Their red is close to the scarlet interior, but if I can find a closer match, I'll use my own leather. Katskin's red is real close, a little better than Lacarrea's but you can't just buy pieces from Katskin. We'll come up with something I'm sure. There is a custom shop here in town thats been in business for over 30 years. Thought about talking to them. I saw once a 70ish Mustang with a vette dash. Yep, I had to look twice.

Got my NPD catalog and it had the grant cruise switch relocate in it. Didn't pay attention to price, but pic showed both switches bottom center of wheel hub. That works if you gonna use a 4 spoke wheel. I'm looking at a three spoke. Maybe switch doesn't have to be mounted in that location, will ck with grant. But also, the Lecarrea I'm looking at is diff from a grant mount. Booba, you seem to be the electrical guru, whats your opinon?

There's a guy on FSB that moved the switches to his dash, and rewired them to where there was only 3 buttons. Lemme see if I can find him, I think it was Alvin in AZ.

That's pretty cool. I'm sure you could use just about any button wired to the harness for the cruise switches.
