    Off the net. 1aauto. $480 Canadian with shipping and customs. Installed myself, took an hour. Don’t forget to resell your old mirrors for some $$ recoup.

    As for the new dodge style mirrors;

    1. They shake a tinge. If you’re used to big trucking mirrors this probably won’t bother you.

    2. Heating works well. All motor functions work well too.

    3. They stick out a lot. So you need to get used to driving with a mirror obstructing your side window views. Especially on turns. And when parking or passing anything closely.

    4. They work amazing for towing. Pop out more then the clip on tow mirrors from Canadian tire.

    5. The blind spot mirror works well but I’ve bought another adjustable mirror for seeing directly below the mirror. This is for parking spot lines and because I salt with my truck. And if you notice the actual dodge mirrors have the whole side of the mirror as a blind spot mirror.

    All in all a solid buy. Good quality if not great. Will never go back to the old mirrors and now selling them. The site also has chromed out mirrors with the single light. Check them out!

    Awesome. Let’s do this this. Do you have both of them? How much are you willing to part with them for? :) Feel free to send me a PM if you’d rather too. I’m excited. Thank You!

    Oh nice. I spent a bunch of time looking for bolt on tow mirrors last year for a gen3, and found nothing.
    Thanks for the review!!

    You can, you just gotta do 80 and use cruise control while in drive. Then bitch about it relentlessly. Oh, and also having absolutely 0 understanding of the effect drag has helps too.
