Mirror curb assist?

Anyone that has owned a GM like the past ten years or newer with power windows, will notice that in reverse, you get this extremely fancy feature that will rotate your mirrors to the ground to help prevent curb rash, do we have these in the jeeps? I can't figure it out if we do lol

Have these in my '07. It's a pain in the ass when the motor starts to go. The mirror stutters on the way down and doesn't go back up all the way.

Its a feature on all 07+ I believe.. you can take your rig to the dealer and they will use whats called a "starscan" tool which allows them to activate this feature. They didn't even charge to for mine as it took less that 10 minutes in and out.

I have it on my truck and have had it on a few other vehicles I've owned. I've never turned it on on any of them. My jeep does not have it. I keep my side mirrors adjusted so I can just see the top of the rear wheels, and I've never curbed while backing up yet. I'm just not used to it probably. I rarely even look at my backup camera either but starting to find times that it is handy.

There are a couple of starscans on the forum now, you might be able to borrow one.
Dealer turned on my tow harness and mirrors for $50.
