dodge tow mirror install (15th May 09 at 4:29pm UTC)
If anyone here has owned an early 2nd gen dodge, you know the mirrors suck! I couldnt see past my dually fenders at all. Pretty scarry towing a 10 trailer with a slide in camper in the back. I bought these power, fold out tow mirrors off ebay for $261 shipped. They are for a 98.5-02 dodge. So to get them on my 96, I had to change a few things.

Here is the old junk.
Image
Pull the door panel, remove the 3 mounting nuts and unplug the harness.
Image
As you can see the plugs a differend between the new mirrors and the old ones. I cut off the plugs and re soldered them on. Followed by sliding heat shrink over the joints to make it trouble free.
Image
Image
After that, simply install the new mirrors. Fast, easy upgrade. Took about and hour and a half to do both sides. Beer brakes included. {Grin}

Because its originally wired for a heating element attachment. My truck is too old and doesnt have that feature. I could wire up an extra switch in the dash if I really cared.

Nevermind, I think I found them on Ebay Says they are for a 98-02. I think they would still fit my 97

yup those are them. You will have to change the plug to make them work on your 97. You still interested in my tires?

I am, but like I was say'in spent the wad on the truck and now gotta keep my funds ready for the end of this month. Headed to Hawaii for some R&R for a few days.

Sell those things bro if you can to anyone else interested. And honestly, only my front two are worn on the edges. But your's are a hell of a price wouldnt mind getting all of them.
Also, if ya know anyone with a front hub cap and a complete spare rim and tire mine's missing.
Here's my new to me turd, killer price though and only 119k miles

And typical paint problem, I have already rattle canned it for the time being
