So I finally got to the dealer today and talked with the parts guys. They said the only tow mirror that fits a 2011 1500 is an extendable mirror and not the flip. Of course, they didn't have dimensions of the extendable (extends 4.5"), nor did they have it in stock. They would be glad to order it but it was unclear if I would need to pay for restocking.
Has anybody installed these extendable mirrors? I see lots of references to them online and I think they are around 16" non-extended but I found nothing too definitive. I also see lots of reference to them having turn signal and side marker lights but I haven't seen a picture that included these lights. All places that I can order don't seem to give the option of buying with that option even though they talk about them as an option. Can anybody shed a light on this? Part number is 82210941AB.
I took my tape out and measured the flip mirrors on the dealers 1500s and they stick out about 3" further than mine. From other posts, I'm assuming the 55372070AH and 55372071AH part numbers would work on my truck even though my parts guy didn't find them. However, they are defiantly too wide for my application unless I want to fold them every time I go in and out of the garage
