After getting the boot out and the wire fished thru then putting the boots back in, I realized that I fished the wire thru backwards :frusty::frusty::frusty:

    Undid it and fixed it. Wouldn’t ya know it? They work! Thanks @MESO for such a rad addition. Ready for nightfall so I can see these puppies in full glory.

    A very easy job. Follow alot of the tips from everyones install and it should be pretty smooth. Also a proper trim removal kit will help tremendously.

    Awesome! Nice use of that dish soap right there too
    ;)

    I ALWAYS Suggest do a dry run install. Lay everything out on the ground and see where it all plugs in to get familiarized with it. I also made the end of each extension FEMALE so it’s smaller to fish through the door boot and up into the cabin.

    Not eta yet. Working on more wire harnesses

    I can make them longer if needed? Some people say perfect length, some say too short. I think it just comes down to how they route it..

    Maybe. I tried routing at behind the carpet but theres just no slack so it pop up behind the footwell airbag for now.

    I can send you pictures later showing you my route if your interested. But everything is wonderful. I can just tape it up behind that airbag if need be, I rather not pull the door off and re-route a new cable again. :p

    I was kind of curious about this too when I started seeing this issue pop up. Mine were perfect. I really didn’t think how many options people would run their wires, if there is that many ways. I guess with each different run and small bends routing the wire the loss of inches could add up. I just made sure there was no slack from each mirror running through the boot.

    Definitely, it seems these may have been cut "too" perfect. So only those masters of the craft will get it just right. I do have some slack, but it's just not enuff to keep it behind the carpet.

    Yeah, I just worked diligently. I had all day. Took breaks when I wanted or needed to just walk away for a bit from self frustration miss placing tools several times. Thought through things. And triple checked as I went. Did not want to have to redo things from not paying attention.

    Install was not bad. Just don’t loose the little white clips inside the Mirror covers they don’t like to come out of the little black hole where the mirror bolts too lol.
    They are awesome though very excited to see them at night. Love the plug and play. Thanks MESO

    I agree, I think an extra foot or two would give enough slack to make things comfortable. Personally, I can't get it to hide under the driver side carpet / foot rest area, but found an alternative for now.
