Thumbs up Installed new mirrors 👍

Swapped out the standard mirrors on my truck for a set of towing mirrors, man what a difference! A huge improvement, the field of view is fantastic and I feel much more confident driving with these. They are reproductions but identical to the OEM towing mirrors, plug and play, all the electric adjustments and defrost works as they should and NO vibrating which was my biggest concern. NOS were around $600 on eBay and these were $80 shipped to my door in 2 days. Not usually a fan of reproduction parts but these look/fit/function perfectly.

Re: Installed new mirrors 👍

My motorized extension mirrors on my Suburban - the passenger side has died and honestly they're a bit small to be fully functional for me anyway, so I've been looking for some of the taller style. Don't care if they're motorized to extend or not since I never extend them anyway. These look great and exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks for posting.

Re: Installed new mirrors 👍

Those look good.
Are the turnsignal chevrons in the glass like the stock mirrors?

I have power folding mirrors but I rarely use them now that the novelty has worn off.

Re: Installed new mirrors 👍

You can get ones that have the integrated turn signals, but I did not opt for those. The smaller mirrors that came on my truck did not have them and I was told that the signals may OR may not work if it was not an original option on the truck itself. Those were more expensive and I didn’t want to pay the extra $ and have them not work.

Re: Installed new mirrors 👍

I have those on my 3500 and love them! Really needed with the deep tint the PO put on the truck.
My son put an aftermarket set on his 98 Silverado and they were a huge improvement.
I wonder what people think about the late model tow mirrors?
