    Default Mirror replacement question

    Hey everyone,
    I am looking at replacing my stock mirrors with towing mirrors.
    My current ones are power but not heated. Will the plug match up if I get power heated towing replacements?
    Thanks!

    I dont think it would work. You would have to have a button in the cab to control the heat function even if they were plug n play. I have power and heated and looking to upgrade to tow mirrors and wanting to know if the LED turn signal would plug n play and cant get a solid answer. Regardless of the heat function they would be a great upgrade kidder!

    x2.....On what ajarman has mentioned.....for heated mirror's to be a plug-n-play.....you need the Rear Window Defogger on the HVAC control's.

    I didnt know you didnt have turn signals before the tow mirrors. That is GREAT news that the wire is there for turn signals!!!

    Procrastination....

    The Kool Vues -- I purchased them from Discount Auto Mirror. They cost about $135 each. Click the link below and scroll down. You will find both the left and right mirrors near the bottom.

    They were supereasy to install...once you do the first one, the second goes even faster. It took me about 45 minutes to do both. Here is a thread that explains it somewhat. There is also a thread out there that goes into more details w/pictures, but cannot find right now.
