They should deffinately bolt up but not sure about the electronics. Does your truck have power fold and defrost? Are the new ones power folding and/or power telescoping? At $112 each the price is right. I put new manual teles. on my 02 dump from J.C. Whitney and they were $360 for the pair.

Your truck probably doesn't have heated mirrors. There would be a button like the one for rear defroster on the bottom of the HVAC controls.

The wiring between 99-02 and 03-07 is different.

They will fit, the power fold in option becomes inop, but if you have power adjustments they will remian functional. If you dont have them, you may have gotten lucky.. Most of them have the harness under the cover, so you may end up with them. I have seen them on a few trucks. Looks great, i would like some too.

Nate are you worried about saving the old mirrors? You can cut off the plugs and make them work. I have a set of factory '02 mirrors I was looking at but I can't find my other '05 mirrors to compare the plugs.

They will work. Im not a person who likes to cut plugs off parts, so IMO, you'd have to get the wiring diagrams for both 01-02 and 03-07 and compare them to find the wires you'd have to splice into.

I used to have a set of instructions for adding the directional signals to an early truck....Id have to go dig to find them.
