Looks good! I love my OHC... haven't got around to getting my mirror in yet though. How hard is it to wire up?

I need to do this as well. I got an auto-dim mirror from Hooligan, and have yet installed it.

I like that style of mirror better... the one I have in the shop must be older.

lol I'm jealous at how centered your OHC is with the mirror... mine is off to the passenger's side a bit.. of course no one but me would probably ever notice, but still...

The mirror is pretty easy if you just want Autodim its just 2 wires I believe. If you want autoheadlights it gets a lil more complicated. There is no wiring diagram for the 07+ rangers but I got mine working and it has been working since like Jan. So I can help ya out.

edit. just realized i quoted something a week old.... fail.

07s have a completely different switch with the fog lamps built in. No write ups based on 07+ wiring so I pretty much went blind into it. Once you find all the right wires its a breeze.
