    The part I am most interested in is the heating element. That being said the price will be a deciding factor. If it is too expensive I will just follow one of the write ups on the site

    If all you want is the heating element, check out Muth mirrors. They don't have the fold out feature for towing like the ones Rob is advertising.

    I like this idea very much. I havent read up on the Dodge "conversion" write up but this sounds right up my alley. I feel having side mirrors that can be extended are great! The heated mirrors and turning signals are not really a must have, but if it comes as a package deal then shut up and take my money. :D My vote goes for all black. I am not a fan of chrome.

    I'm really interested in this idea as well. It will definitely help seeing around those wider trailers and the heating element would be very nice. At the very least, heated mirrors should have been an option for our trucks.

    I'd also like to see them in black and what there price point will be...

    Just one more thing to add. As of right now this thread has had 951 views but only 39 votes. So if your viewing this please vote so that I can show this to the marking depatment and they can get people what they are really looking for. There seems to be a trend but the best way to really make a showing is by having the votes on hand, whatever you deside. Thank You

    I am definitely interested. I use the universal strap on ones from Cipa, and they do ok, but they are a bitch to set perfectly everytime.

    Count me in as long as the price isn't super ridiculous. Oh and I voted BLACK

    As for feedback; I'm watching the price point and install difficulty. I'm looking for no more than a half day project for install. Anything more than that is getting stupid for mounting mirrors. The price point just depends on how easy they install and how much functionality I get out of them.

    i think these mirrors are pretty tits especially if they were black. i do a lot of towing during the summer and hunting season and i really like how they flip out and when flipped in they look almost stock. but it would be nice to see them mounted on the taco.

    Any chance they would do a color matched option? If you added it to the poll, I bet you would get more votes.

    Forgot to vote, opps. One more question tho, how much bigger are these mirrors compared to OEM? Wouldn't you be able to take a pic of them sitting side by side?

    I really like how they have a convex mirror built in as well!

    I've been looking for a good set of towing mirrors. I don't like the chrome. I would like them painted to match the body colour. Are they heated? How much are they going for?

    Funny I like the strap on better since you can easily take them off when your not needing them.
    I suppose that both would work well.
