    What is involved in swapping in power mirrors? These are factory 90-91 units. What parts do I need to make sure and get? The mirrors, wiring harness, switches? Anything else? Are ther any relays or anything under the dash? Can i adapt it to my stock fuse box on a 90 Suburban?


    I searched and couldn't find S**T!

    Don't bother with power mirrors. Instead put them in a box and send them to me. I will pay the shipping. The FedEx guy will be by Monday to pick them up.

    Glad I could help.

    get all the wiring and the door trim strip that the switch control mounts on. also if you are super fussy like my just cut the harnness 6-7 inches in the cab and feed all of it out so you have both ends to make the right stuff and then unbolt the complet doors. the major reason is the glass is diffrent.

    i can get pics of this stuff if you wish as i have a set of doors off a 90-91 burban.

    the big diffrence is the spot were the mirror bolts on covers up some of the big glass and the glass for power mirror doors has a blacked out spot. so if you are vary specific kind of person this fact might bug you if you dont get the glass.

    when i got mine it was actualy cheeper by almost 50 bucks at the yard to take the door complete and not part it out. go figure :confused:

    let me know if you want the pics.

    Just a thought for others that want power mirrors but don't want to try and find the actual "Burb" power mirrors.

    I put the power mirrors from a conversion van onto my Burb.
    It took a little fiddling with the clamp portion of the mount inside the chrome cover as the Van mirror arm is a little fatter, but it works well and looks stock to all but the most knowledgeable.

    When I got mine I took the mounts from the van, the mirror heads, and all the wiring including the switch. There were no relays and only needed to be tied into a single ignition hot circuit.

    Here's a bad shot of them installed a few years ago.
