Iam sure you can, it looks like the same base, just try one side, its not so hard to try it on, a little more work if its electric.

I am adding some 08's to my 01. I believe the color wires will match, the new mirrors have nubs on them which you need to remove the screw from, dremel off the 3 nubs, dremel it flat and put the screw back in its place then they should mount. I havent received my mirrors, but when I do them I will know a little more. Right now I am researching it like you are so PM me if you need any help!

those are mirrors off an 06+, they will bolt on just fine, but you may have to drill out the mounting holes in the doors a tiny bit

Yeah, they'll fit ... but you'll have to cut or grind the raised bosses down and then
re-install the studs. You'll need a E6 or a E8 TORX bit socket to remove the studs.
I just installed a set of 06 + chrome face power mirrors on my truck today and it was a b**** because I had to cut the electrical connectors off my old mirrors and wire them onto my new mirrors. But it was worth it in the end.
They look real nice.
