Default Regular Cab/SuperCab Towing Mirrors?

I'm sure this topic has been beat to death, but I will be buying a trailer soon and I'm sick of the stock mirrors on my truck. Would like to get some towing mirrors for it, but the only ones I can find are the eBay ones that look like Chevy mirrors.

I really like the look of the 04-08 and 09-14 style towing mirrors, does anyone know if these would fit a 2000 SuperCab?

Are there any other types of mirrors out there that do NOT look like the Chevy mirrors?

there are expedition tow mirrors that resemble the newer style. there are 2 different options, "97 Only" and "98-02" i took a chance and bought the 97's for my 01 supercrew and fit perfectly and were 100$ cheaper than the 98-02 specification because it didnt have puddle light and heated mirrors. good luck.

The expedition mirrors need to be modded to fit a single/super cab. An extra hole needs to be drilled and the plastic needs to be trimmed, I'll be putting these on ny super cab

They would have to take some modifications to fit a Supercab though.

Yeah I don't want to have to go through that hassle, I'd like to just buy a bolt-on kit.

They look so much better than the duramax look alikes though, which are the only bolt on tow mirrors
