    Like Harry I have the large chrome power mirrors, only diff is I got mine from a fullsize van. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What I like about these better than other mirriors is that the arm holding the mirrior is curved to pull it closer to the body, you have a larger viewing area than the black sporty mirrors, and I can fold these back up against the door for tighter trails.
    Plus being the metal body, they take abuse better than the plastic ones.

    I've never seen the mirrors like HarryH3 has, didn't even know they ever made anything like that. I always though the housing was too thin for a power head to fit /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    The only downside to the power mirrors is running all the wiring and mounting the switch in a position that allows for easy adjustment.

    Ummm, I'm not sure what year they started, but my 94 has them and these came off a 92 I believe.
    Most of the old body style conversions should have them.
    If your in a yard looking you can tell the mirrors because they have a black plastic extension on the back side to make room for the motor and such. You can kinda see it in this pic

    The switch is in the dog house so it can be a pain to remove (the van I got them from had been hit hard in the front and took a breaker bar to get the doghouse open)

    It took a little work to make them fit in the truck's mirror bracket.
    If I was to get a set, I'd get everything there (the whole mount off the van too) as much wire as possible . . .
    I had to cut a portion of the shaft off to get it to fit, and the weatherstrip ring has to be removed from the truck's trim cover to make it fit (the shaft is larger /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif) I still have to finish mine up (wiring) but they worked when I tested them and the wiring is actually really easy.
