Here's a weird one: will an 05Xt steering wheel retrofit onto an 04XT?

Or any other Sube swheel for that matter-say, a Leg GT?

Depends on the way the plug end looks for the airbag. I have some info here:

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4876

other things like CC stalk and radio controls (if there) are kind of up in the air depending. If the size of the airbag charge is the same (round disk held in place with the 4 nuts) that can be swapped out to get the proper pigtail / plug in connection for the SRS harness. I would not suggest cutting the wires to put on the right harness end. From what I understand others have done this but when it comes to SRS stuff cutting wires is something I myself would not do.

It'd have to be only a plug and play otherwise leave bad enough alone.

If someone has one to sell make sure you have them take a pic of the back harness area, that will help.

WRX Mono Steering Wheels will work on a SG Forester, Yes?

For example, would these on ebay work:

First one I need to see the back to see if it has the pigtail on the airbag or not. You would also have to see if you can retrofit the CC stalk,

The second one looks like it will work on the airbag but not sure if the CC will plug in or not.

The third one look slike it will just plug in but I'd like a closer look at the back of the airbag, that shot is small and it's hard for me to see if it has the pigtail type (and the wires cut) or the direct plug in type.

BTW:
Good upgrade? My hands tend to slip on the OEM. I hoping for some "bing" and better grip.

Mostly Bling, there are some bumps that feel nice but pretty much the same thing. If you have the MOMO OEM Subaru shift knob they look nice together.
