Nah. I'm fine without it. Never had any instances

I miss my tow mirrors! Pulling our 27' tri-axle flat deck just isn't the same anymore..

I think I've manually folded mine less than a handful of times in the 10 or so months I've had mine. Then again I live and work in the country and rarely go to high population areas and have a nice, wide parking spot at night. I hate driving anything else with small mirrors now.

You can't have 'em!!!

Seriously though, they're amazing even if you don't tow much. You can see absolutely everything around you! As far as I'm concerned you'd have to tear these things from my cold dead hands before I'd give them up!

I don't imagine I would miss the power fold option to much. It wouldn't kill me to fold the mirrors in manually if I had to.

That was my justification. I knew I could switch over to the double garage bay (wouldn't fit in the single bay without folding the mirror in) and any other place where I would need to fold them in I could do it myself. The visibility gained is more than enough of a reason to upgrade. They also look really tough on a leveled or lifted truck.

I just have to deal with it for a little while until it's SD time, and then I'll have power telescope and fold TT mirrors :p

Just finished installing my D-Bug Screen. Really simple to do, and is a great addition to any vehicle IMO. Just gotta decide if I want to put one of the provided decals on the back window or not.

That's great! I really hate a lot of the grille inserts out there. This is a much better way to keep the rad debris free!

Do you have a write up for how you installed those D2's Or duallys, or whatever they are? Or did you just drill a hole? lol. I'm thinking that might be a viable option for my 40"...
