Anybody tow a TT with a late model jeep grand Cherokee? What kind of mirror extensions or modifications have you used? Do you recommend any in particular Iíve seen them priced from $10-$150. Thanks in advance!

Itís not your Jeep but these are the extensions that I have great success with. They donít shake so your view is always sharp and being able to adjust their length during difficult backups is a plus for me.

I use Milenco mirrors on my 2021 Jeep Grand that I used on my 3014 Grand Cherokee.

My only complaint is that you have to check and tighten them frequently as otherwise you are running down the middle of the interstate looking for it in the grass on the side of the road. You can guess why I know that.

I do like them as they don't shake or vibrate, haven't scratched the car mirrors, I can take off and store in the included bag and didn't cost a lot. Another advantage is the there is room to fold the power mirrors with the Milencos installed so they don't get wacked in parking lots and tight spaces.

I had the kind that attached with rubber bands but they vibrated and were useless.

The Milenco mirrors worked great on our last Tundra, but the F150 has a double thick housing, and we had one blow off when a dump truck passed us by. We bought Snap&Zap mirrors, that can't blow off, the only drawback is, they don't stick out quite as far, but being slightly convex, they work well.

Here's the ones we bought for the Ford.

Up until this year we towed with a 2014 grand Cherokee eco diesel. Used the mirrors pictured and were very happy with them. Very stable and clamped onto the mirror housing. Paid around $150 for them at the dealership.
