Default Towing mirrors

Has anyone replaced their nontowing mirrors with towing mirrors? Aftermarket or OEM? Can get aftermarket for around $200 for the pair shipped. Heated with power. Can get OEM heated and power new for around $340 shipped.Think OEM is worth the extra $140?

As with any aftermarket part, getting them to fit might take some work, or it might not.

I don't know if the extra $140 is worth it unless I could see the aftermarket units.

Some say the aftermarkets vibrate at highway speeds.

OEM will be straight bolt in, plug-n-play. With OEM once you're done with the install it will work immediately unless you screw something up.

I purchased the OEM ones from the dealer in TX. They were easy to install, perfect fit and they work GREAT! Just be sure you're careful with the electrical connection on the power plug. If you break it your out of luck.
