Well I did install the new updated mirror, ran two wires from the right and left front turn signals, so I have the blinkers working fine, however wiring the movement and heat for the new mirror to the van's wiring has proved to be a major problem without having a wiring diagram. Does anyone have a 2001 Express 1500 and a 2006 mirror wiring charts?

I have a 2000 Express with 184K miles. I am installing a beefed up transmission for heavier towing capacity and I'd like to know if a 3/4 ton differential would be a "bolt in" fit. I know it'll be the next thing to go, I'd just like to be ready when it does. I'd also be interested in any mods to the existing rear axle to make it more reliable.

I recently bought a 1995 Chevy G30 cargo van. I need to put in a bench seat but don't know where to bolt it down to. I don't want to just bolt it to the sheet metal, because I don't want it to tear out in the event of an accident. It seems like the main frame beams are U shaped. Any suggestions?

Did you have any luck with adding the 3rd row bench? I want to add one as well. Can you add just a short track extension or do you have to install a new tracks? Any advice would be great!!

Hi Brett, I only added one bench seat up behind the driver's seat, but what I ended up doing is finding a used bench that had brackets on the bottom that were spaced the same as the main frame beams. These brackets were just simple plates with holes in them. I put 8 inch long, ½ inch thick bolts all the way through the frame and used some wide washers on either end. Seems to be working well.

I wish to install the LT captain chairs in my AWD Express, but have not been able to determine if they will fit my bench seat floor brackets. If so, I will try to find tan seats in a salvage yard. John

I just read your post. I have an 06 GMC 2500 Cargo van. It has manual mirrors and I want to install electric mirrors. Any ideas if this is possible. I have heard that the wiring harness should already be inside the door, Also would I have to replace the entire mirror or just the inside parts.

For those with newer Express (mine is an '07) and have power mirror and heated mirror, the existing harness already has the wirings for the mirror blinker. All you have to do is purchase a set of oem blinker mirrors from the dealer and swap them out. No additional wire or mod is necessary. Easiest job!
