Great write-up. Installed some sport mirrors on my express today! Just need to figure out how to activate all the extra features like puddle light, turn signals, etc. anyone know the sales code to use to get them activated?

Default Extra Support Brackets for the Flipup Mirror

I ordered what were supposed to be the flipup tow mirror and received the slide out style and in the kit was a extra support bracket to help stop mirror vibration ? So when I ordered the correct flipup style mirror I had the parts person order the brackets that were in the other kit and installed them with the flipup style mirror.
How they Work: they go over the the back mirror studs and then tie to 3 other areas on the door. The 3 other holes where already in my door and they are in a hexagon shape so I went to the local auto parts store and purchased 6 WellNuts and six stove bolts with some fender washers. Insert the WellNuts before you install the brackets and use the stove bolts and fender washsers on the 3 new mounts. WellNuts were used to mount the big mirrors on our old Fire trucks so that is how I came up with using them for this project.


Mirror Part # Flipup, Heated,power,puddle and turn.
68143805AB & 68143804AB $387.00 each ?
Bracket Part #
68078243AA &6807842AA $7.00 each ?

My truck did not come with Puddle and turn signals as it is a Express model but the extra plug for what I asume to be the Puddle and turn lights did plug into my door module and there were pins in the module for the plug to make contact with so I am hoping a dealer flash to enable them will work. Also the plugs are keyed so they only fit in a specific socket in the door module so i do not think they could be plugged into the wrong spot.

Has anyone had the Puddle and turn signals activated successfully on a Express, and if so what are the codes in need to activate.

Did you do this on a 4th gen truck? I just ordered tow mirrors for my 2011 Ram 1500 and would like to use a backing plate if one exists for my truck. My mirrors are the 55372070AH variety but they should have the same bolt pattern as the part number you quoted.

For anybody else searching, the second bracket number is actually 68078242AA

Default Too Cool.

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to leave feedback. Instructions were so clear that a single read-through and look through the pictures was enough for me to change out my old stock mirrors w/o difficulty in under an hour (I'm a doctor, not a mechanic). Great job.
