No power-folding mirrors? Jeep got me!
 
Dammit lol Granted, I have only driven my new WK a few times, but today was the first time I realized my mirrors didn't have a folding motor. Cheap Jeep decontenting... :fighting:

"Power heated fold-away mirrors with memory? made me think they were like my '07s and power-FOLDING.

You got lucky to get your 07 with that feature. My old 07 Overland didnt have it. It was built like a day or two after the cutoff.

Are you sure you tried to fold them back the right way?? I've got power folding mirrors on mine(09). However I know people that have no clue on how to fold them back.
Just in case you don't know: TURN the electric mirror adjusting knob(left or right) until the white dot points towards you.

Some people are simply pulling the knob backwards thinking that's it.

Hate to think that only WH's still has this feature....it's really useful

lol yes i'm sure. It's a different "switch" and doesn't turn to the 6 o'clock position.

it would probably be more than just adding the mirror

For a small fee of say 25,000.00 I will take my power folding mirrors apart and show it all piece by piece, so you non power folding guys can upgrade. :lol:

I think you just need the mirrors, the switch, then you just run an extra wire from the switch to the mirror.

I stumbled on this looking to see if my WK came with them... My build date was 12/06 so I was hopeful.

The link explains the upgrade and wire runs required.
