Thread: Tow mirrors?

  1. #1

    Default Tow mirrors?

    My truck has full power(power folding) and heated mirrors. Is it possible to put power/heated tow mirrors on?

    Yes, you can buy the GM mirrors or get Kool Vue mirrors. I picked up a set of GM mirrors on eBay, but there are a number of members on here who have the Kool Vue. You'll keep your power and heat, but you lose the power fold, and the auto tint. Great mirrors though and a mod I definitely recommend.

    If you get 99-06 mirrors, yes they will.

    You can find them on eBay. Get ready to spend about $200 or more a pair. Definitely the best mod I did (although mine are not power or heated ones).

    You can check out mine on my newest thread under the member photos section. They are not the accordion style.
