They came on mine because of the tow package (I believe). I think they look better than the smaller ones and I'm into function also, so with that, they are a win win to me

Leaning closer and closer to tow mirrors. I'm getting another 2" lift put on the truck in a week or 2 and will probably help the look of tow mirrors a bit more.

Thanks everyone for pictures and input so far!

Yeah I'm not too hot at wiring, so unless I can find a great write up for it, I may have to bring them to someone to have them installed...

Not even for how they look on the truck, they're damn nice to have. especially the small wide-angle beneath to monitor the trailer wheels when they swing out of view during turns. Definitely worth it, you will not regret them.

Hey does anyone happen to know how much longer the tow mirrors are (not extended) than the stock mirrors?
