Ours has the trailer brake and power folding color coded mirrors. Not sure what package that is ultimately.

Mine too, the brake controller is a stand-alone option available.

Congrats OP. We need pics!

When you ordered did you upgrade to the 3.92? If not, did it come with the 3.55 or the 3.21?

I went with the 3.92s, I have a 32' camper trailer that I tow so the taller gear was a must for me. Bit of a long story here but I had ordered a 2013 first and when it came the factory had changed the order and put 3.21s in it, the 13 model with 3.21 was only rated for 6500 lbs towing. Major screw up and I could not accept that truck.

Long story short the dealer offered me a 2014 for the same price as a 13, ended up waiting an extra couple of months but I'm further ahead in the end I'm sure.

The 3.92s are the only way to go in these trucks as far as I'm concerned, performance is incredible with this setup. It pulls like a hot rod when its empty! Lol

If you have the tow group on your sheet you should have break controller and manual fold mirrors.

I do indeed, manual folding trailer tow mirrors. Didn't want the trailer mirrors, but we didn't realize when ordering that it was part of the tow group. I know, stupid right, didn't realize we should have ordered the hitch and brake controller separately which would have given me the normal mirrors.

Trailer mirrros are great for towing but too big the other 9 months of the year. Lol Oh and they don't autodim either which is something I was really looking forward to.

I would be happy it came with the factory tow mirrors, my truck came with them and they are wonderful for towing our TT. A question, if your truck came with the smaller mirrors, what do you use when it comes to towing? Beautiful truck by the way!

I have always used the small stock mirrors when towing, been running that way for years. Yes my visibility is limited but I have gotten used to it and they work for me.
