YOU CAN POST A PICTURE OF THE LED LIGHT:halo:.. opps, could we see a picture of the led lights? I know they are the bomb, I just want to see a little some some. How about some of those rabbit ears hanging off the window, like the Ridaz use to sport back in the days.. Nah kidding. I was curious about changing the door handles to the 2002 stlye, is it possible? Cost wise it probably might not be worth it, just an idea though.

ESKI.. how about blinkers for the mirrors, like the 2002+ have? Or adding some flood lights under the mirrors? Dual exhaust? Next year I'm going in on the intake-exhaust upgrade.

you could take that left rear piece of body cladding and an extra piece of the right rear (with the exhaust cutout) to a good body shop and get them molded together to make a mirror image of the right side exhaust exit. then get an exhaust shop to make you another pipe routed there.

you could go with cal-vu mirrors like these:

or if you want to keep your stock mirrors, you can get these which replace just the glass part:

or replace with a stock style mirror housing with signal glass:

i wouldnt do that, neither one of them talk about the mirror still dimming at night. The heated option is 50 bucks more, which is standard on the escalade, and it seems like then your mirrors wont dim at night. I would never give up that feature, for some little led lights :tisk:

same here. i loved the dimming side mirrors. the signals are nice, but not worth losing that feature IMO.

The dimming plus heated feature on the mirrors makes them a no can do for the 3rd rate aftermarket. I broke one and it turned out to be four hundred bucks. If your looking to cut up your lade with a bunch of 3rd rate bling and chop up the dash with ghetto video -more power to ya. My condolance is in order for your lack of class.

Hey Slimm! Can I buy your stock dr side mirror. BTW how are your cv joints and tc holding up? It was 106 dg here today- I miss the cool NW.

Skalaid, while I am at it, Have you had any issues with your steering? I have talked about a front stabilizer for months to try to cure the kickback I get with rough pavement. It is getting so bad that I fear the ball joints or rod ends may be done. I am too busy to mess with it and I thought you might have identified the problem? My pitman and idler arm have been done recently.

hmm, no i have no issue with my steering whatsoever. It does get stuck in like a rut in the road on occasion. But i just attribute that to the 23" rims and low profile tires. :confused:



Didnt the ball joing break on slims car?? or was that the hub bearing??:suspense:

what kind of wheels do you have? lowered? lifted?
