Mirrors, Power mirrors on a manuel mirror ram

I have a 04.5 3500 with non/power tow-mirrors,. i plan on getting power tow- mirrors [prob. from genos] to replace these and want your input on wiring & switches.... non/powers are a PAIN to adjust when folding them out to tow. My honey needs them adjusted when she drives, so that's all the more reason to swap. thanks!

It's my pot and I'll stir it if I want to. If you're not careful, I'll stir your's as well!

Genos is good. Another excellent source of mirrors is 1A Auto.

You may have a bit of a problem with the wiring and switch if your truck does not have it now. Suggest that you call 1A and explain the situation to them and see what they can offer you.

I went to a junk yard, bought the wiring harness, got a switch out of a 98 or so camaro, wired up now have power mirrors, I didn't hook up the heated segment, but all wiring is in place, I have had them for about 8 years now. Like u I was sick of fold up get out and adjust, fold down get out and adjust. A guy side swiped me so mirrors wound up free, secret is finding wiring harness, as most junk yards will not strip doors, look around you can find the harness. Good luck.;;

No wires are there.... Time to dig and see what/how i can do it!
Any input to save me from gray hair?

Im thinking about power mirrors and windows for now and maybe power locks later, get switches for all and wire up what i want now...

I did not change anything yet. Other things have kept me buzy, moving for one .
I did search for some parts like the door switches and window regulators and such.
Sorry i dont have a glowin success story
