I also lost my auto-tilt in reverse feature as well as my memory setting. So as long as it has the auto dim, I'll be able to retrieve those features?



When you bought your mirror, was the salvage yard able to differentiate between the two different mirrors? I know which mirror I have, and if I'm able to convey the difference to them, that'd be nice.

yes...I remember. As long as you get a mirror with your same options...you will be golden. My truck is a laredo and I got 2 overland mirrors with heat and so forth and they work perfectly. I did have to run a power wire for the auto dim...but it was very easy.

The salvage yard I work with is a pretty local LKQ yard that IO have worked with many times. So to be honest...I have a very good relationship with them. At the time I got the mirrors I have....I was upgrading my black laredo molding to the chrome upper molding...so i just got two 08-10 painted mirrors and then orderd the upper moldings to match. Most of the Overland mirrors I have seen use the mirrors with the base that STOPs at upper molding......

Re: Replacement for OEM mirrors

gotcha, I'll grab a painted set w/ all the goodies then, Joe you know i would never cut a corner - just like to thoroughly weigh out all the options!

Scott or anyone, my mirror is a Laredo mirror with power/heat and no auto-dim, its on an 05 so do you know which ones work with mine? From looking, it seems the base goes under, heres a pic

Re: Replacement for OEM mirrors

gotcha, dont plan on swapping moldings, thought about the chrome but i dunno,

Is 05 the only year that used that base or only Laredos? They dont show pics on the car-part site and its very confusing how they list it, I dont wanna rely on the guy over the phone either, anyone know any specifics?

Re: Replacement for OEM mirrors

Moldings are the easy part.. just have an extra set opposite of what you have now.. you might not have to use them at all!
