Just drove it, zero blind spots and LOTs of viewing. Worth it!

Agreed. Those mirrors are one of the best mods I’ve done.

Those mirrors look really nice! I've STILL got a set of 2012 takeoffs which have been in a box in my garage for over 5 years now! I'm getting really close to putting those babies in. They are power extending and power folding with heat. The biggest hold-back I've had is that one of the mirrors has a bent mounting bolt, but I just looked it over closely the other day, and I believe i can press out the bent one and replace it with a straight one from an older mirror parts box on my shelf.

You've wasted 5 years of good mirror viewing!

What year truck AKcooper9? I've been thinking of changing mine now that I have a bigger 5th wheel. Hate my 1999 mirrors. My list keeps getting bigger and bigger also. Have lots of things to do before this summer vacation.

So you didn't have to do any extra wiring? I know on mine, I would have to find the right wires to make it work. Really like them.

On mine the plug was already the upgraded plug but only the mirror adjustments work. I still need to wire in the running lights, blinkers and heater...

Did they send the upgraded plug? I believe I heard they are suppose to send both ends. But they were out a while back. If you wire it and can take pictures and post, I believe we all would like that. That's something I haven't been able to do. I'm not very good with these things.

If any of you guys have the urge to visit a national park, now's the time (government shut-down). I've visited several of them, taking videos (new 4K dashcam) on my way through - no charge at the gate. I show up at the gate, the gate is open, the charge would be $35 each time, but there's nobody there to collect the fee. This applies only to parks where the states are picking up the tab for keeping the lights on. The petrified forest was closed, so that one doesn't count.

Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Waheap - all good.
