Default I need some (towing) help!

Somebody please lead me to a link where i can buy some tow-mirror extensions for my 2013 Ram 2500 - the mirrors have signals leds and have the fold back option.

I checked on Ebay and they say the 2013 mirrors are different than the past ones

Thanks in advance!

They don't flip up do they, like the older ones did?

I thought all of the 2500s came with tow mirrors? All of the ones at the dealer had them, even the base trim models.

My 2012 2500 came with standard mirrors. I am looking to upgrade to the tow mirrors. I had them on my 03 and really liked them when towing my extra wide enclosed snowmobile trailer.

I don't think the aftermarket has towing mirrors for the 13's yet because they moved the temp sensor to the mirror.

Your best bet would be to keep an eye on ebay for a used one to pop up or just pay the high price at the dealer.

For the 09-12's I got lucky and found two for a total of $100 bucks. Only thing wrong with one of them is the turn signal was cracked... easy $34 fix.

Thanks no mine is a 2013. And there is no flip up feature like my 08 dully had.
I had one vendor tell me about the sensor but I could not find it where exactly is it.

I don't do much towing so I really prefer to get the extensions besides mine has the fold in feature which I like for driving in the garage.

Thanks

That makes sense. I asked about the flip up because there is an amazing number of people that have 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks that don't know the mirrors flip up and out for towing.
