I have done so far window tint for the front windows and HID aftermarket low beams and I am going to be doing the DIC upgrade when I get back from my holidays in Oct and I am also doing a steering wheel upgrade to a leather wrapped wheel with radio controls.

DIC Upgrade? What could you possibly do to the DIC? I'm interested.

check on a search for dic upgrade and you will find the part number for the button and instructions for installation. super easy to do.

We ordered the DIC switches and wiring from GMPARTS DIRECT for way way less than it was going to be at teh dealer and the steering wheel I picked up at the wreckers for 80 bucks.

Have you installed the steering wheel yet? I have tried what you are thinking of doing and I could not get it to work. I purchased a leather wrapped steering wheel off of ebay from an Enclave. All the wiring hooked up correctly and the stereo buttons illuminated but they would not control the radio. I tested all of the switches with a multi-meter and they all checked out. The cruise buttons all worked fine but not the radio ones. I am really curious what you find out.

I'm pretty sure that a module, perhaps the radio, would need to be reprogrammed to know to use those buttons.

a radio out of a vehicle that has the steering wheel controls might fix that problem.

I have my installer doing this for me he has done a few of them from Equinox and Torrent to an Outlook and Acadia and even a few Montna minivans so I am sure he will get it working for me.
