2008 Tow Mirrors Installed!!!

well i got bored this evening and decided to take on the task of installing the 08 tow mirrors... everything went pretty smooth except it was over 100 degrees outside and i got very frustrated real quick trying to fish through some wires for the turn signals and running lights lol... i gave up and just wired up the power mirrors and left it like that for another day.....

before i post up the pics does anyone have some good advice on how to fish the wires through from the door to inside the cab? its a PITA

anyways here are some pics.... i still need to install the Recon Smoked lenses which ill do this weekend

let me know what you think

Looks good raul, I would use a wire coat hanger, or go buy a cheap fishing tape at the hardware store.

LOL... well i guess im gonna try and wire up those turn signals tomorrow.... im thinkig of just wiring them up to my headlight turn signals to make it easy.. and run the running lights to where i have my gauges hooked up.... should be pretty straight forward.... if my damn truck already had the wires it would only take 30min each side tops
