I bought it from a dealership used in 2017 with 11,500 miles on it. It was a lease repossession.
On May 6, I was stopped for traffic on the freeway when a jack-knob on his cell phone rear ended my 2014 Silverado LTZ extended cab doing 60mph with his early 80s Ford Ranger. My receiver hitch and back bumper were bent and deflected down 8 inches with a small ding on the tailgate. I was able to drive it away and everything seemed normal. I took it to the collision place and found out the bed was bowed 8 inches up and the frame was likewise bowed and creased. The body shop did a fantastic job over 7 weeks replacing the frame, bed, rear bumper, and hitch and the truck drives better than it did before the collision. Also got the shop to replace the stock exhaust with a Borla S-Type cat-back system with dual chrome tips out the back since the original exhaust would cost exactly the same to replace and it was bent too. There is literally no evidence of any prior damage and the truck looks new and sounds awesome with the new Borla system. $25000 bill with the repair work, medical bills, and rental costs all told and paid so far by insurance with only a $100 deductible. My question is, how will this affect resale on the truck and has anyone successfully gotten their insurance company to pay for diminished value after such an accident and rebuild? Not quite sure how to go about filing such a claim after something like this happens.
Sold! Thanks Mike!!
I also warn you, this forum is addictive. I have a Borla S-type dual catback exhaust system, an S&B CAI system, and a Diablosport tuner with Diablew custom tune sitting in the garage waiting for my truck to come back from the body shop so I can do more mods. Too many hours and dollars spent since discovering this forum... lol
Yes Mike, @pgamboa is the one to contact for harness info after 6/17/2019. He may be able to offer you a DIY to update your current harness or most certainly can build you a plug and play. I used one of his DIY kits and used my old harnesses and it worked great and was simple, but you do have to unwrap your old harness and it involved swapping a few pins...a little time consuming. I would think it would be a pretty simple affair because the only real difference in function between your mirrors and the DL3s is that yours have the LED spots and running lamps and the DL3 does not, but does have the LED puddle lamps.
I would contact @pgamboa with this question. He will be able to tell you exactly what you need. He supplied my harness kit to upgrade my existing door harnesses and my '14 also required a "RZY" jumper harness (under dash, through firewall, and connects R&L mirrors) as my truck was not originally configured for tow mirrors. Yours may require this. I purchased my mirrors from 1A Auto. Phil is on vacation this week and will not be immediately available to reply, but he is definitely the guy to go to and can also supply your harnesses and mirror recommendations as well. Good luck with your project! I was very happy with the materials that Phil supplied to me and all of his technical knowledge on this subject. It made my upgrade very easy!

Purchased the power folding version of this from these guys. Let me tell ya, these are some quality mirrors and I have been thoroughly impressed with the operation, fit, and look of these mirrors. Better than the OEM tow mirrors in my humble opinion. Upgraded the OEM door harnesses and used the RZY jumper harness required for the 2014 Silverado. A little work, but fantastic results. If you are not sure of your application and what is involved, call 1A as they are very knowledgeable and can tell you all you need to know. For the wiring, you can find out all you need to know and even purchase custom harnesses if you wish on this forum. I don't often take the time to review products, but these mirrors are an exception. They really are that good.
Got my tow mirror project all finished up yesterday. I decided to go with the 1A Auto Trailridge mirror and can't be happier. I really want to thank @pgamboa for all of the fantastic information. I replaced a set of DL3 mirrors on my 2014 Silverado. In addition to the mirrors, I had to install the RZY harness to provide circuitry to the door connectors, and also ordered a kit from Phil to modify my door harnesses. With the videos that Phil has done, all of the pictures, and the wiring kit with great pictures and instructions, completing my upgrade was easy and satisfying! The new mirrors look great and I am very happy. Unfortunately, I was rear ended at high speed by an uninsured, unlicensed driver early this morning. He hit me so hard that the frame and the bed of the truck bowed. He bent my bumper and my class I receiver hitch down 12 inches. He also caused two other drivers to plow into us creating a huge mess. I was the only one who drove away. Unfortunately, I turn my truck in tomorrow for a complete frame replacement and a new bed. They will have it for a minimum of a month. Thankful that I am okay with only some soreness, but am really upset that my truck was damaged so badly and that I will lose her for at least a month. Thanks again Phil, for all the help you've given everyone here!!
