can anyone tell me what year(s) our trucks came with an 8 pin plug on the power, heated mirrors? i need to find some for my 02 dakota, and ive found a few heated folding mirrors on ebay from wrecker yards but they appear to have a 6 pin harness. what year mirrors should i be looking for so i know they're 8 pin? and yes, i am positive my truck came with power heated mirrors, i have the options breakdown sheet. the guy i bought it from however had them taken off and put cheapo ebay mirrors in their place.

Since yours is a 02. I would say a 01'-04' but than again I don't think they changed any wiring in the inside from the older ones.

when i originally asked about them at the dealer they said 01-04 also. but the ones on ebay that i did find, which were from a durango, i think were a 2000 or 01, and they looked like 6 pin. and of course, the seller is a major business so they're not going to take the time to go look. they just told me "contact your dealer for interchangeability"

I thought I seen some on here for sale... Check the for sale place. If the dealer is saying 01-04. Then I would think just stick with that. And look for a Dak 01-04 and a Dur 01-03.

ive been keepin my eyes open, but the heated ones are hard to come by. ive seen a ton of power mirrors for sale both on here and on ebay but they're the 5x7, not 6x9 heated folding.

Oh your looking for the towing mirrors? Those are hard to come by I know that for sure. 5x7's seem to be very common.

yeah, because from what ive seen the heated mirrors were only available in the 6x9's. i have yet to find a set of heated 5x7's. if they make them like that, id much rather have the 5x7's but i want heated mirrors more than i want the small size. but im def not gonna buy any aftermarket mirrors like cal vu's for 2 or 300 dollars, i dont need them that bad.

2000 had the older style 'dumbo' mirrors. AFAIK, 01-04 Dak and 01-03 Dur mirros were identical. I may be wrong...

i know 97-04 are all interchangeable when it comes to bolt pattern, as for size im not sure. the only thing i do know for sure is that the power 5x7's ive seen (and already bought for $15 thinking they would fit my truck before actually checking my wires) are all a 6 pin plug. the only ones ive seen that are 8 pin are the 6x9 power heated folding mirrors. are those the "dumbo" mirrors? the factory mirrors only came in those two sizes, right?

It seems to me that 6x9's only came on the 98-00'. And from 01-04' they just used the 5x7's. No heated option for 5x7's. Just power.

What I was looking for were heated 5x7's but I found out they never came with heat. They only came powered. Sucks though... I would love to have heated mirrors. So that explains why the 6x9's you bought have a 6 plug and the 5x7's that you have in your 02' have a 8 plug.

no, the mirrors i bought for $15 were the 5x7's, powered, non-folding 6 pin. my truck's options sheet says "GTS - Power Heated Mirrors, Fold Away" and fold away mirrors are only available in 6x9 from what i've seen.

yeah, if i cant find any of the heated, i may just run some wires between the 8 and 6 pin plugs so i atleast have my power mirrors back, because now they're unhooked, obviously, and i got nothin.

I'm almost positive that in 03 there was an option for the 6x9, folding, heated mirrors.

Edit: mine would be the "dumbo" mirrors.. whether those are 6x9 or 5x7, I honestly have no idea.

but after further research, the 01-04 Dakotas have the 8 pin plug.
