it wouldnt matter on whats already on the obs. the only place that the sd mirrors can go is the little vent winder on the end. and you have to come up with a mount to make it fit. but for $20, ill jump on that.......as long that they are in good condition.

yes they are the tow mirrors, the bigger chrome ones. I like them but I figured it would be cool if I could put the SD mirrors on. I dont think I could make the power parts work though

I think it would look cool, but you would end up loosing the wing windows to mount them causing a blind spot on the passangers side.

The power mirror wiring is the same, I have a set I want to put on my truck as well. The schematics show that even the wire colors match up. I havent had the door apart yet to see if the connectors are the same, but that shouldnt be hard to splice.
