no, you can't. the posts on the 06+ mirrors are part of the unit.

Washers are important b/c the 06+ posts has an extra base to it that makes it loose if we put it into the stock holes.

Also, the gold/silver studs that the nuts thread onto, are the same on both mirrors. It's the mirror housing that's different. So it's either mod the mirror to make it just like 05 and older...or drill. lol.
