Wow, those Dodge style flip mirrors are pretty sweet. Way better than clip on's.

Thanks again for the response. I really don't want to scratch up my mirrors so I will try a few trips and see if they are really needed.

I went to Wally World last year and pick up these mirrors from camco:

It's the Tow-N-See. I was impressed with how they worked. Hardly any vibration, plus they have the advantage of moving in/out up/down with your power mirrors. Can't beat the price either, a little over $18 bucks.

I have these exact same mirrors as they don't make slip on my my Trailblazer. At first I really liked them but found that as I drove the air pushing against the mirror made the mirrors bend in. I don't mean they collapsed like you do if something hits them, but that the adjustment on the electric mirror was being pushed inward and I am worried it will damage the electric mirrors over time. Happens on both sides of the truck.

Have you had this happen to you?

I fixed that issue on my Sierra (I have chrome mirrors)... used some no scratch silicone pads on the inside of the slip on.... never scratched...


And yes the extended mirrors do provide a better view of the back. With my previous TT and the Sierra I could see the driver's side rear marker on my TT.... Knew everything that what happening behind me!

When I had my Trailblazer I never had a problem with the clips interfering with the electric mirrors. But the air would push the extended mirrors in a bit so that we had to adjust them while driving.

The suction cup is attached to the mirror itself so I find I have to keep readjusting them out as I drive and eventually I can't readjust them out anymore. I'm worried it's damaging the mirrors.

My apologies Scott. I didn't use the suction cup type. Mine clipped on.

Hey Scott..... I can't really say if they do bend in or not. I haven't used them enough, especially on any long trips. But on the short trips we have gone on, I have not had any problems with them.

Just an update. I got my Cipa custom fit extensions. If it helps you, they have stick on foam strips included to protect the truck mirror.
