    If you want to do a puddle light, it is possible that depending on the options on your truck, you might have your mirror harnesses prewired for puddle lights. My 2003 Avalanche has puddle lights from the factory in the bottom of the mirrors. The 2007+ SUVs with the turn signal/power fold mirrors all have puddle lights on the bottom, but the trucks came with the same mirrors without puddle lights. The harnesses would be the same though, so if your options would make your truck equipped for the non-towing signal mirrors, the harnesses would include a puddle light that would work on remote unlock.

    I just ordered LEDs to swap into my factory puddle lights, and I plan on tapping that wiring in the doors and running LED strips under the full length of the doors on both sides of my truck above the running boards that will work with the factory puddle lights so that all of the doors have lights rather than just the front ones.

    That is a good idead. I would put them on the underside of the mirror. This will give you the puddle light and broadcast to a larger area. Just my .02. If I was electrically inclined I would try this.

    Just out of curiosity... How did you wire the mirrors up? It doesn't look like you have turning signals so what power source did you tap into? Those look awesome so if the wiring is simple enough I'm going to give it a go.

    I had to run a wire for the signal and for the running light. The signal was at the connector in the door but the running light had to come from the fuse box under the hood. Also had to run a constant ground. The ground which was in my mirror was not constant unless I held the mirror adjustment down lol
