    I just finished installing these today, I had made them quite some time ago using the glass from my truck's original mirrors. I found that if you drill through the black plastic backing the mirror glass and remove the adhesive foam goes, you can put LEDs behind the mirror glass and have them shine right through.

    I used LEDs I had sitting around from the old 3rd brake light for my canopy. (They aren't great, so thats probably why a tiny little brake light needed 30+ LEDs). This means you can't really see them in the daylight, but they are cool in the dark. I can put up with this considering it didnt cost me anything to do it.

    2.8l to 4.3l engine swap

    No gramps, you made the same error I did. It reads 4.3 when the thread is closed and it reads 3.4 when the thread is open.

    Factory FOB works, interior switches do not

    Actually, when you think about it, the passenger mirror is adjusted from the driver's door panel, so I would suspect a problem in the driver door wiring.

    You say you have never been able to adjust passenger side mirror. Is that in both directions ( up or down, left or right)? How about the heater for

    2.8l to 4.3l engine swap

    Actually no there's nothing wrong, but there is a problem with my eyes. The 3.4 is the last of the 60 V6's so everything from a 2.8 and a 3.4 should

    2.8l to 4.3l engine swap

    A 3.4 will work. A 4.3 will work if you get different motor mount perches. You will need another tranny, harness, computer. I did this swap with mine
