Any info on this? thanks
It is easy to do. Just a little wiring involved. Some folks snip the connectors off of the door harness & mirror harness and splice the wires in, others take the time and trouble to locate the factory pins & connectors to make it look OEM. I'm one of those guys. Mine has all OEM connectors. I went to the wrecking yard and got connectors out of wrecks and made jumper harnesses.
Lots of guys tap into the turn signal wires up under the steering column. I picked up my power at the front signals and ran a wire inside loom from the signal through the boot in the door to the mirror. I picked up power for the marker light in the mirror from the unused brown wire in my trailer brake harness under the dash.
