Default '06 mirror swap

Swapped my mirrors last night... Surprisingly easier than I thought it would be

06 mirrors is the probably the best exterior upgrade that can be done!

I love mine. I mainly put them of for plowing and they work great!

I was totally against these at first, just didn't like the look... Now after seeing a few, I'm thinking about trying it at least. If I don't like em, y'all will eat em up....lol

I never thought it would be much of a difference until I actually did the swap. I shouldn't have waited so long
