Looks like about $169 for the pair of heated and power on Amazon if I keyed in your rig correctly. Pretty good deal IMO and I don't think you'll have any regrets by going this route over the slip-ons.

May the Mods grant me the serenity to accept the opinions of those I cannot change,
the courage to offer valid input to those who are open to another way of thinking,
and the wisdom to shut myself down whenever I get too in love with my own misconceived brilliance.

I to didn't want the" full" size towing mirrors either since my truck(f 150) is our only vehicle and there's no way I was going to park in shopping mall spaces that typically are wide enough for compact cars. I put a piece of paper towel between my cipa's and the mirror and no scratch's. Maybe it depends on the vehicle but i get no vibration with my cipa's.

I have the cipa slipon mirrors for my 2015 Silverado with painted mirrors. The slip on mirrors came with padded tape and the instructions said to wax your truck mirrors to avoid scratches. I have used them on three trips and so far no problem. I like them. No scratches and no vibration.

I use the slip on's with my ram sport(painted mirrors) I use th foam tape supplied, wax with a quick spray on wax ahead of time and cover the painted part of the mirror with a shop quality paper towel.. No scratches or scuffs in 2 years so far...
I opted not to get tow mirrors when I bought my truck because dodge doesn't offer the "power fold option" with the tow mirrors.. I tow my trailer 5-10 times a year so the slip ons are good enough for that. Driving daily in the city, it's nice not to have the larger tow mirrors...

I use these. No scuffing to worry about. I did not want the huge factory tow mirrors as I only do the weekend camping. Plus you can take them with you when trade vehicles!
