I only have the driver side for sale. The passenger side is going back to the original seller on eBay. The mirror I have is NOT power fold and power telescope. It is manual fold and manual telescope with power mirror/heated mirror/and signal.

If you want power fold/extend your gonna be looking between $600-$1200+ for the mirrors alone and there is a lot that goes into making them work.

I am selling my mirror for $250 plus shipping. Just trying to get what I have in it back. I just bought them this week and put them on but am already taking them back off because I found a set of power fold/extend mirrors that I am going to put on my truck. So this one is for sale now.

Buy the mirrors/switch/power fold module/telescope switch/wire it/ it is a PITA. LOL not to mention expensive but totally worth it if you plan on keeping your truck for a long time like I do.

You have to have the power fold switch. Then there is a power fold module which looks like a normal 5 post relay but its not. You need both of these just for the power fold. Then you need a telescoping mirror switch along with the mirrors themselves and then wire them up.
