So Sunday I decided not to be lazy and go the car wash and dug out my powerwasher from it's winter hibernation... I had my truck out in the country Friday night and it was just plastered with bugs....Long and short of this washed the passgenger side with no problem, started on the drivers side... was spraying off the driver side mirror (above the running light/T signal) and all of the sudden plastic just started flying... the mirror looks like it's been through a cheese shredder and has a beautiful line it now... Called the dealer to price it out... $600 bucks...I about fell out of my chair. I have searched the internet looking for somewhere to pick one up, but no luck so far. I can't look at this it's in my face every time I walk up to the truck, but I am having a hard time bringing my self to pay $600 bucks for a mirror. I have only had my 08 for a little over a month, talk about wanting to kick your own a$$... (I have used my powerwasher on my last truck, same nozzle, never a problem) Anyway, just had to share...if anybody as in clue or suggestion on where to get one cheaper please let me know. (Heated,PowerFold,Extend)

Thanks. I have been checking it out. they have a Passenger Side one on there now for $350... of course not the driver side!:doh:

Guess I will just have to keep watching it for one, or payout the nose:tard:

You must have a [email protected]$$ pressure washer or were you using a 0 degree tip? Sorry about the luck. How about Stealth Automotive, not sure what type his are but maybe you can use the outside of some cheaper ones and put the heated, power, extendable guts out of your in it?

going to take the pics now. I will check out Stealth. I really like the factory mirrors. I just washed the rest of the truck after happened and left everything where it was and went in side and stared at the wall for awhile... don't think I have ever been that ticked... at least at myself :)

Stealth sells factory 08 mirrors, I just don't think they have all of the fancy features. Dfuser.com also sells 08 mirrors.
