Thanks, I'm using information from that thread as well. I don't have the 08 bezel to trace a switch pattern to cut in my bezel. I thought I read someone had made a switch template, but I'm not having any luck finding any templates if they exist.I used info from this thread when I did my mirrors.
hey! i was reading over your guises diy type of installment and i was wondering how long the process took? im only asking cause im not very handy lol and dont want to take forever if i were to do it myself
They are blurred because many of us here used Photobucket to host our photos. It was a free service for many many years. A while back they decided to charge $$ and most of us decided not to join. If you aren't a subscriber to Photobucket, all of the photos that we all posted are now history and all you see is the Photobucket logo.Why are all the pictures blurred out?
I don't mean to :hijack: this thread , but I finally got around to installing my 08+ Trailridge mirrors from 1Aauto. I LOVE the mirrors. The visibility has improved tremendously and I love the blind spot mirror. Simply said, there isn't a blind spot anymore. Installing the mirrors took less than one hour.
I ordered the power folding mirrors so that I wouldn't have to get out to fold the mirrors every time I park in the garage (winter time) and this is where it becomes very interesting. I ordered a new mirror switch to include the PF option. I ordered the other parts as per @Dante04SRT sticky. The new mirrors come with added pigtails for the PF options everything else is pretty much plug and play.
The PF wiring requires me passing wires from the door to the cab (sticky does that too) but for the life of me, I cannot do that through the door boot. the wiring harness there ends up in a square plug (electronic) and I'm not willing to drill a hole anywhere close to that.
So I am reaching out to anyone who's done this conversion? How in the did you pass the wires through? I am also a bit miffed as to @Dante04SRT install as I feel there's missing info. Maybe it's just me.
Also where does the power folding module plug into (see sticky)?
Any :help1: would be greatly appreciated. I will post some pics eventually. I can't be the only one that opted for the power folding option.....
:thankyou2: in advance!
I installed the mirrors and I absolutely love the upgrade. I bought the ones from 1AAuto with Power folding option. I am trying to do the PF upgrade with the factory folding switch (see @Dante04SRT write up). That is installed and I can adjust the mirrors up, down, left and right. However, I have not been able to to the PF yet. The '06 and ;07 truck have the electronic plug from the door to the cab for the wire loom meaning it's not straight forward for passing wires from the door to the cab. I have not resolved that yet.
I have been traveling extensively (27 flights this month, 2 more to go this week and I'm off)
This issue has been escalated to @1AAuto.com and Karin is staying on top of it. The mirrors are advertised as an upgrade for the '04-'07 with a wiring kit, so they should fit my truck including the wiring portion of it. The instructions provided were poor at best. There's no way (at least yet) to pass the wires from the doors to the cab. So Karin has passed this on to their expert for a solution. Hope to hear from them soon.
@TwinExcursions bought the mirrors also and we are communicating via email for a resolution.
I'm happy with the mirrors but the PF option is a bit crucial for me. I have a steep driveway and I have to fold the mirrors prior to going in the garage. I fell several times last winter trying to do this, hence the PF option. I will keep the thread updated as we go along. Hopefully I can come up with a good solution and will post pics on how to do it.
