I agree, you want the mirrors to be wide enough apart to see well. The outside edge of my std truck mirrors are the same width as the TT, so the clip-ons end up far enough apart to see fully past the TT side. Make sure you have that condition for the mirror spacing width. You would be much happier to have that condition.

we have the CIPA custom towing mirrors. We ordered them from amazon. they have worked great so far.

Congratulations on your new TT. Have fun!

CIPA on my F150 as well $55 for the pair at Camping World. I wish they were convex glass instead of flat though.

They are a little more expensive, but, I think they will work better for ytou for one reason - tow vehicle width. Your jeep is a mid-size suv (so its narrower) towing a full size trailer. I found that with my mountaineer (also a mid-size) that no matter what clip on mirror I used, I still couldnt see far enough behind the tt. That all changed with the McKesh mirrors. They stick out further than anything you'll find and they are like a part of the truck once you install them. They are a little more money, but beleive me its well spent, especially for us guys towing with mid-size tv's.
I agree the strap on mirrors are probably a better choice for an SUV. I was using the CIPA 11650 mirrors which are knockoffs of the McKesh mirrors with my Toyota 4Runner and they worked great. The price was right at $44 each at amazon.com.

I love my CIPA mirrors....my left one does not add much, but the right really helps. They take a few trips to get adjusted to your liking, but once you get them set - they are great.
