Steering Wheel Swap

So I bought a steering wheel with audio controls for my 2011 Base V6 without audio controls. I read that to get the audio controls working you needed a Ford dealership to update the ACM. I called 2 different Ford dealerships, each being a hour away from me, one said that they might be able to but at the same time might not but it would cost $90 regardless and then the other dealership told me it was impossible because there was no wiring or power to the new buttons and basically I was an idiot for thinking I could. Has anyone done and can verify it can be done? I only spent $45 on a used GT wheel so I won't be out a lot if it can't, just want to know if it can or not.

From what I know about the steering wheel swap is as long as you aren't trying to use the sync buttons (since you have a base) then the dealership would be able to get basic audio controls to work with their IDS tool.

I am not 100% sure on this, but from what I have read it should almost be plug and play with the cruise control also. I would keep calling around and maybe read other threads and see what you can find out. I do know it has been done! Good luck!
