+1 on that!

Regarding mirrors, I have always had a set of McKesh, since they were recommended by the dealer who sold me my first TM. I have been completely satisfied with them, but they are a little pricey. A couple years ago, CIPA came out with a McKesh look-alike, their model 11650, for considerably less money. I have not had a chance to use them, but I know the McKesh mirrors are easy on-off, very stable, and wide field of view.

FWIW ....

You have a Suburban, right? Any tow mirror that fits a Silverado/Sierra pickup truck will be an exact bolt on. If you need to match up the option code for your mirrors, get me the last 8 digits of your VIN. I can pull a product build sheet on GM's service site.

Thanks Shane, I found the Cipra 39 bucks for the pair they slip on and have a screw in the back to tighten to the oem mirror.

You can get full size replacement towing mirrors that will bolt on in place of your stock mirrors, either aftermarket or from GM. If you get the right ones you will retain any power, heat, turn signal, etc functions that you currently have. If you want to know your production code so you can match up a set on Amazon or whatever, send me the last 8 of your VIN. I am a mechanic and have access to GM build sheets.
