overland power mirrors on a laredo..

hello folks...

I currently own a 2011 GC laredo...nothing too fancy (as ive seen on this site)...but want to install the power mirrors that come on the overland models...


first, does anyone know where i can purchase some them? Mopar doesnt seem to list them and the folks at the dealer arent any help.


second, im assuming that some work has to be done to the electrical system...does anyone one know were i can find an installation guide?


i do most of the work on my cars, so looking to do this myself..but not really sure whats involved...


ideas, comments are always welcomed...! thanks!

Re: overland power mirrors on a laredo..

try ebay....Ive seen lots of 2011 salvage parts on there. Or try www.car-part.com. Hopefully they will be like the 2005-2010 wk's....all mirrors worked on all models.

Re: overland power mirrors on a laredo..

The fold down feature when in reverse is annoying. Doesn't always stop in position you really need it in. I turned my option off in evic.

Re: overland power mirrors on a laredo..

Hi elchaski

um mate why didn't your 2011 GC laredo come with the power mirrors? are you referring to the side mirrors? Just asking because mine already did?

Only option i got was a DVD system put in (bad decision coz the kids just use iPads now!!!) grrrr

Re: overland power mirrors on a laredo..

Thanks everyone for ur input and help....well to make a super long story short....I was screwed over by the dealer and had to take some legal action....(can't go into details). Finally took possession of my truck and ready to do some mods. I have replaced the radio....I will post a write up on that soon...

Just glad its almost over n can enjoy my ride.

As far as the mirrors go, I'm putting it on hold. I think I want to hook up the sound first...then install a CIA and then outside flair. Rims prob this summer with some there things...


Good to b back
