Default 06 Power Mirrors on a XLT 01

Hey!

I was thinking about to change the current rounded powered mirrors from my 01 XLT to the squared 06 powered ones.

Is it too hard to make the 06 move with the actual 01 switch?

Thanks!

its actually not.. electronically yea it is. but the bolt pattern for the mirrors are different. drill new holes or move the posts on the mirror.

NO, bolt patterns are the same, they will fit. Some of the mirrors have nubs you have to chop flush but thats it. I have 08's on my 01 ranger
