No, but I am going to get that on order this week. I wanted to make sure I had a solution before I shelled out another $600 for another mirror. The passenger mirror is easy. Just need to run the two wires from the passenger door to the driver's door and connect to my existing wiring. No switch on the passenger door required.

These can be activated at anytime. Engine does not need to be on for this setup to work. The power I stole to make this work is powered all the time.

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

Just out of curiosity, what was your use case for wanting power fold mirrors?

I have them on my overland, but have used them maybe twice in a year.

$1,300 is a nice chunk of money. Do you have a tight garage where you'll use them every day?

There were two main reasons.

1. Because I do use them quite regularly. I have a tight garage and fold them in every night before I park. I have grown used to them as I have them on my 2011 Avalanche as well. I am just in the habit of folding them in when I park (regardless of in the garage or not).

2. It was a challenge that I took on personally. I have done similar electronic add-ons on my 2006 Corvette (added a 2008 NAV and steering wheel controls after the fact) and on my 2011 Avalanche (added heated steering wheel). Since this is my first Chrysler product it was a bit of a learning curve and I went in with both feet before I knew the depth of the pool. The fact that they control everything through a CAN signal and modules made this a bit more difficult but in the end it's just a power feed to two wires. So people attempting this after me will save $200+ on parts since you don't need the door modules.

I have the power fold mirrors as standard on Export Jeeps, but having the option of them folding when the ignition is off would be better.
This could prevent damage when parked and saves remembering to fold them.
I use it regularly when parking to avoid them getting hit by careless people.

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

Sincere apologies for the length of time it has taken to write up the instructions. Here they are. They are a bit lengthy but didn't want to leave anything out. Let me know if any of you need the exact bill of material for the connectors and whatnot and I can provide that.

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

Finally got around to adding power folding mirrors to my 2011 Limited GC. I chose the hardwire method and things were very straight forward. Alot of good advice and tips from Grizzwold made this install pretty simple. Thanks Grizzwold. I used the same DTDP switch as he did. Mirrors ran me about 950.00 shipped to my door from MoparAmerica. Part numbers are 68191984AA and 68191985AA. These mirrors are heated, autodimming, BSM. I do not have BSM on my 2011 so this function is not active. Mirrors are for a 2013 Summit Overland edition and do not have the puddle lights underneath the mirror. Order 2014 mirrors if you want the puddle lights. I think I am done for now as far as mods go, but you never know. I have gotten alot of good ideas here on the forum. Thanks guys. Al

Re: Power Fold Mirrors

I'm going to ask our engineer at work to find a way to have the Export mirrors fold in automatically when the ignition turns off. I'm sure it's simple but I'm too lazy and too busy to figure it out right now.

I'll let you know what I, I mean he, comes up with.

The power folding mirrors are controlled by a CAN message between the module in the doors and the BCM. It will require a separate programmable controller that has a few inputs and CAN output. I guess you would have to understand the command for fold in and fold out and trigger it off of the ignition signal.

Holding my switch down for a few seconds whenever I need to do it doesn't bother me (plus I can do it whenever I want, the engine doesn't have to be on)
