have had tow mirrors on my truck since last fall, folded up, love the look, they havent been folded down once unless one of my buddies did it as a joke, I get hounded often for them being folded but it doesnt faze me much... anyways I wanted to see how the truck would look with the stock ones back on and just have a change for a bit. After being used to the tow mirrors and the convex mirror on them it is pretty weird with these little round ones, takes a few seconds longer when backing up because I am not used to them and honestly I find visibilty sucks out of them, probably form being used to te convex mirror, problem with my trailer mirrors is that they arent power, so the mirror itself is flimsy and vibrates around on the hwy and bumpy roads. Just wanted some opinions look wise, I dont need opinions on trailer mirrors on half tons LOL just wanted to see what others liked more look wise as I adjust back to the smaller ones

folded up



down

Sorry, powered or not, you have to stick with the tow mirrors, they just suit the build better, plus they have better visibility. At least you don't have tiny 'bitch' mirrors as my gf calls my Cal-Vu mirrors :LOL:
ya thats what I was thinking, suits the truck alot better, I just wanted to see how it would look with the little ones back on now that I have done more things to the truck. Took the gf to see hunger games last night, backing into a spot at te theatre, I couldnt even see the lines with these tiny mirrors, had to point them down so I could see if I was in between the lines lol thats one of the best features of the tow mirrors you see directly behind you and see the ground with those little convex ones attached to them.

My vote is for the tow mirrors. I have the small ones and want to upgrade real bad.

great looking antlers guys, I think I am going to put mine back on, the little round ones are so annoying in just about everyway lol I really thought there would be more negativity towards the moose antlers lol

Tow Mirrors.. I get harassed by my buddies all the time too, more often than not I get in my truck after a party or bonfire only to notice they're flipped down. Flipped down the visibility is awful especially for backing into spots. I leave them up unless I'm in the city.. Tee'd off on a parked minivan in providence last month can't believe I didn't blow the mirror to bits..

I would stick em out and drive real close to a sidewalk and see if you could sneak up and yank someone in the back of the head with them.

I went through a hell of a time trying to find sport mirrors, finally got them and now im wanting tow mirrors too :(

what look different??

I decided to stick with the stock round ones, not sure why, I like that they are powered so the glass doesnt vibrate like the tow mirrors did, I was surprised that mostly everyone agreed to keep the tow mirrors up!!
