I've been wanting to do this myself. either teh 03 style, or the new 08's. I believe they are all the same bolt pattern and shape. I assume I can just tap into the existing wiring, I know the wires aren't already there for them. So it'd take soem wiring, but it can be done. I just haven't taken the step to buy em yet.

IIRC you can tap into the wiring for the signals, and you can get a 4wd switch out of a exploder that has the rear defrost button on it, and use that for the mirror defrost.

I put signal mirrors in my '02. The wiring is pretty easy if your somewhat familiar with wiring and you have some patience. A friend of mine helped me and we were done within a couple of hours. We tapped the signal and running light wires into the harness under the dash and spliced in the connectors.

This is a good write up for those who want to do it, TheDieselStop.Com - www.thedieselstop.com
