I have a pre-lift internal mirror with lighting package and I just bought an post-lift internal mirror with dimming. I'm going to combine those 2 into one with dimming and light >:D Anyone tried that before? I'm expecting that the plugs won't match, so some rewiring will be required.

Done! As expected rewiring (simple) was required. Also a bit of cutting and drilling of the pre-lift mirror shell to accommodate electronics and light sensor . Now I have a mutant pre/post lift dimmed mirror with lighting package >:D
Skills required:
- patience, a lot of it to open the mirror shell
- more patience
- soldiering
- cutting/drilling plastic using precision tools (dremel)
Detailed instruction how to do it soon

Lessons learnt:
- how to remove/mount internal mirror using one hand and almost no force >:D

I strongly recommend buying proper mirror instead doing that mod, but I couldn't find pre-lift dimmed mirror with lighting package and I easily got post-lift with dimming and no lighting package.

Could've asked here and you are welcome to use my vehicle's VIN to find the part no.
