Well guys, finally got around to it today. If you will remember, I went out of my house a couple months ago and noticed this:





Instead of simply replacing them with the boring old 05 and below mirrors, I bought a set of 06+ mirrors and decided to do the swap.

Here it is right before the install:





One side done!





And both sides done!








So what do you think?

Oh, and I keep blowing the fuse when I try to move the passenger mirror. I'm going to have to take that side off and re-do the wires. But I'm going to leave it alone for now... its almost 100 degrees outside and I almost passed out. I'll fix it up in a couple months once winter hits.

Looks good. Was there any special procedure to do this or is it a straight swap?

Yeah, there was a little work involved. I had to modify the mirrors a little bit by cutting some plastic off where the mounting posts are. It also had to be hard wired (I used some male/female connectors on each wire). Other than that it was a direct swap... LOL

Thanks man! I'm looking to upgrade my bumper from the 01-03 style to the 04-05 style (a little more square w/ square foglights).

Yeah, that style would be nice too. That's the 06+ front bumper. The one I'm looking at is the 04-05 it's like the one white94ranger had on his truck for a while.

I think that one would look good too with the fender guards.

I bet it would look pretty sick with the 06+ bumper, 06+ fender flares, and have the lower half (where it's gray in the pic you posted) sprayed with Line-X.

Now I'm getting expensive ideas... LOL

LOL... Yeah, it's looking pretty rough. I need to get my flares sprayed again too.
