towing mirrors on a 98
hey i love the way the towing mirrors look on the 2nd gens and i see them all the time but i heard they dont work with the 98s anyone done this before? a kit is 180 on ebay but i heard they wont bolt up??

I call 'em moose antlers.

The only difference I know of is wiring. The footprint on the bolt pattern is the same from '94-'01. The style of the mirrors changed in '98 and the mirrors have to be changed in pairs if you don't want two different mirrors on the truck.

That's what could have led to the misconception that they won't bolt up because used parts yards say that they won't.

The doors did change in '98 but as I said if you change them in pairs so they're both the same they'll work (Just an example) otherwise you'd have two different door panels on the inside and two different mirrors on the outside.

My 1999 SLT 2500 4x4 does not have flip-over tow mirrors...I am looking for an upgrade, let us know what you decided on? My mirrors are usless with 2 tons of hay in the bed :-)

There is a Dodge dealer in Texas that did sell Mopar towing mirrors for the 2nd gens on eBay. Now that they are discontinued, I'm not sure if he has any left. I have 2 sets of them. The thing about the 2nd gen towing mirrors, nobody makes them powered...

yeah thats the problem im having

The $216 I qouted is for power and heated mirrors. Scroll down the page and you will see them. They arent mopar but they look just like them.

I put power tow mirrors on my 97 that were sold for A 99 they fit perfectly even the wiring.
