    Default Towing mirrors [Expired Topic]

    Just curious if anybody has gone to the trouble of trying to adapt those nice Ford Super Duty extended mirrors to a suburban yet. I think those telescoping mirror are the way to go, just haven't had time to look into it, not to mention those things aren't cheap.

    I personally like the 4 point mount chrome towing mirrors on 3/4 & 1T GM trucks. The visibility is excellant, I have them on my other truck. The Ford mirrors are definatley not cheap, whlie driving down an unlit backroad a guy with his F350 some how did not see my mirrors(even though they are bright chrome with amber marker lights) and I could not see his(black plastic without marker lights), crossed into my lane and our mirrors collided. His mirror disintegrated and took out his drivers window, he only cracked mine. The incedent cost him $1100CDN to repair(his fault,insurance would't cover the damage.

    That is WAY TOO CLOSE for my taste. Bet that made you count your blessings. Glad to hear you "won" on that drill.

    That seems like a lot for mirror repair. Did it just rip it off the door? What's the exchange rate these days?

    Once I had found some extending mirrors for the suburban. They look just like the factory mirrors when collapsed. Right now the only site I can find is this one. http://www.expressdistributing.com/c...ng_mirrors.htm
    I'd swear it was Genuine GM aftermarket parts, but I can't seem to locate the site. I'll keep looking, and post it when I find it.

    My kids do the SAME thing, they love the bounce. Thanks for the link on that one I will check it out tonight a little later.

    Yeah, nothing like the bounce when in the back of the burban.

    wow. Talk about inflated prices! That's pretty unreasonable.
