    Hey it seems to me your the one to talk to ive got a 2016 ram 1500 with the 5.0 stereo and am looking to upgrade to the 8.4AN looking to get the parts through oem parts with their bezel with volume control knob but just curious what all parts I will need and if I'll have to make a harness myself in order to get the heat/ac controls to work on the screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    My email is tom66132003@Gmail.com

    Curtis I have a 13' 2500 with a RA2 head unit and I have 8 wires at the tailgate. I have the tailgate lock. Besides hooking up the camera and harness at the tailgate did you do anything to the head unit?

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    Hi, I found your writeup on making a harness to upgrade my radio to the ra4 and fix the 4 speed fan issue. But I cant read your diagram the picture is too small, can you either send me the pic of the diagram and the actual part numbers of the connectors and pins we need? Or id be glad to pay you to make me a harness, that would make things a lot easier thanks

    Practically any of mirrors will work I do not have a specific p n the way to identify them is by sales codes not sure off the top of my head which code is for mike. Some will have GNK which is autodiing some will have smartbeam auto dimming headlights etc. I bought one that had smart beam and the mic worked just fine in it but the smart beam did not as it required more hardware and a flash. Having extra functionality in the mirror won't hurt anything. The big thing is to make sure it has the mikes in it. Also make sure the two piece plastic shroud is included sometimes it is
    Not and they run about 40.00, and they run in a few different flavors based on which mirror you get. And yes the camera lines turn with the steering wheel.

    Do you have part number for the rearview. I see different ones and not sure which to buy. Also on your backup cam did the colored lines move as you steered?

    Hey just wondering about bluetooth on ra2 5.0 radio. I switched mine too and everything works but compass dont care lol, and hands free. I want handsfree. If I get mirror and harness will it work without steering wheel controls? Im hoping it will work without installing steering controls and work off of radio only? Any info appreciated.

    Hi,

    I saw that you mentioned when you installed your back up camera you had parts left over. I am looking for the harness that goes the full length of the truck and the harness that goes from the radio to the plug by the emergency brake.. If you have these, would you be interested in selling them? Thank you

    I read through you posts and found the part number for the harness for the mirror and light. Was wondering if you either had a wiring diagram or was willing to make a second overhead console harness. thanks
