Default Replacement Tow Mirrors

Anyone try out the replacement tow mirrors found on ebay? My truck has power/heat/parking/puddle lights. The replacements don't have the lights. Will these mirrors trip a "bulb out" light, or otherwisae upset the truck's computer?

I drove my truck for 2 weeks completely missing a mirror and never had an indicator or anything. You should be fine

I ordered a set off e-bay 3 days ago, I'll be definately missing some features also, my factory mirrors have the turn, puddle and dimming feature, for me it's a better trade off, I can live without some features, the new ones being power and heated works. I think the factory tow mirrors from dodge were outrageous for price, I paid $237 bucks off e-bay.

Well, so far 2 days with the new mirrors and no problems. The "lamp out" light/chime I was worried about must be a 3rd generation only thing. Love the new tow mirrors. Still getting used to the different location/shape of the convex mirror verses my '02 tow mirrors. The puddle lamps were kinda nice, but for only $240 for the new mirrors, I'll get over it.

That is good to know I should be receiving mine in less than a week, got a camping trip planned when I get home, can't wait to replace the old clip on mirrors.

I swapped out the factory mirrors for the tow mirrors yesterday from e-bay, no issues whatsover, 20 minutes and they were on. No "bulb out" or messages from the evic. Totally happy with the switch.

I ordered mine through ebay from Racing Guys Motor Sports Equipment. Google them and you'll come up with their store. Mine were $237, with tax, shipping and duty, it came out to $335 since I live in Canada. Still a hell of a deal in my opinion. 20 minutes to swap them out.

Not sure if the after-market tow mirrors would have that option, you would probably have to have that feature come with the new mirrors for sure.
