I got the OE tow mirrors as I didn't want to risk getting vibration in the mirror and wanted all my features similar to my sport

I "just" did mine. I ordered new OEM tow mirrors for my Sport, took all of 20mins to install them, funny how much I never paid attention to the autodim feature on my sport mirrors, now I notice more that these mirrors don't have that feature hahahha

I installed mine as I pull a large holiday trailer, but man do they make the truck look freakin beefier!!!!

That is exactly what I noticed....but with tinted windows, it makes up for it.
But I do miss the auto dimming feature

Default how far do the OE tow mirrors stick out?

I have a 2011 Sport that I've been wanting to put tow mirrors on as well but I haven't been able to determine how wide the mirrors stick out when they are in the down position. Are they the same 16" as the normal mirrors and then get wider when you flip them up?

I was also wondering if anybody knows if the REPLACE mirrors offered by CARiD are the same form as the OEM tow mirrors. I spent time in chat but they really had no clue what the mirror was and started quoting me box dimensions. Sigh... tough to get good help these days.

CARiD link is http://www.carid.com/2011-dodge-ram-...m-1107359.html

Thanks,

Jeff

They are certainly wider than the sports when closed and wider when open.
Try to find an OE set otherwise find a reputable seller than sells good tows

I agree, purchase the OEM mirrors, they fit exactly, factory connections and in some cases they are covered under your vehicle warranty as well. I'm happy with mine, no vibrations, no issues.

I've heard people have vibration issues on some aftermarket tows. And a few members here have not.
Always easier complain if you have an issue with an OE tow as LC mentioned.
Just gotta find a set

I guess I'll need to go back to the dealer with tape in hand. I talked to them last year but they couldn't tell me if the mirrors would fit or how big they were. I did a rough measurement on a truck in their showroom using my arm as a measuring stick so I knew they were wider but I didn't know by how much.

My concern is that I park in a garage with a single door and even with the sport mirrors there isn't a lot of clearance. I can absorb another inch but if they are 2 or more inches wider it would be a real pain if not impossible to get through the door. I'd really hate to have to fold the mirrors in every time I go in and out of the garage.

Cost is a concern. It seems the OE mirrors are easily twice as expensive as the aftermarket ones. I'll watch ebay to see if I see anything cheaper but I've already noticed that you have to read the fine print to avoid getting sold a knock off.

Thanks for all the help.

Jeff
