I just bought an enclosed trailer today for my race car and I'm having a hard time seeing with the mirrors on my truck. there just the basic mirrors, could I switch to the camper mirrors or will i run into problems with not enough wires?

Yes you can, do a search here on site and there is links to sites that sell mirrors for our trucks, from basic to full on power, heated mirrors

Tow mirrors are awesome! And they add a good look to the rig

So if I don't already have turn signals there is no way to make them work? Should I buy the mirrors with out the signals? I would like to have them for towing.

On my last truck I just bought some mirror extenders, I just put them on when I was going to tow. They just slide onto the mirror and you turn a handle to make them tight. They worked well, I had my standard mirror then an extended mirror to see past the trailer. I think they were something like $40 at the local RV store.

I bought a set from discountautomirrors.com and put them on today. Fitment is great and I opted for turn signals and the worked. I couldn't be happier, thanks all.

are they the ones that extend out and do you use the stock switch to make them extend out?

No these are non motorized mirrors, to my knowledge they don't make motorized ones anymore. These do extend out you just have to pull them yourself.

So, just to be sure, you had the small non-signal mirrors, bought the signal mirrors from Discountmirrors, and they hooked up and work?

Thanks.

Install Difficulty 1-10

On a scale of 1-10, how was the install? My main concern is finding all the nuts and screws to remove the door panel. Thanks.
