Check out LMCtruck.com I am not a big fan of those clip on style mirrors...

Our vehicle does not have towing mirrors available so we have these:
http://www.amazon.com/CIPA-11950-Uni...towing+mirrors


We added some of those stick on mirrors to both the vehicle's mirrors and the towing mirrors for an even better view.

Just installed these mirrors yesterday on my 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00. Found these very nice instructions (with pictures!): Tow Mirror Install - How-To - GM-Trucks.com. Took about an hour to do the first side and less than 40 minutes. Retained my factory power adjuster and heat. My truck has RPO code DL8 which would have allowed me to add turn signal as well had I seen the need or wanted to justify the additional expense. Couldn't be happier with the end result.

I had the CIPA slip-ons on my old Silverado and they worked well and didn't shake much but the mirror was a bit small. For their price, the CIPAs were a good buy and a descent temporary solution.

I have the full head Ksource mirrors on my 2500HD the PO installed and I love them.... no forgetting the slip-on mirrors or dealing with the wedges. KSource seemed to be the premium import aftermarket brand for tow mirrors but the Chinese and Taiwan don't seem to have any problems with stealing others designs and there now seems to be a flood of the OEM style mirrors and at good prices. If your budget permits, I'd opt for the OEM style towing mirrors. I'd bet those mirrors SparkDr bought are good quality and about the same as you would pay for used OEM mirrors.

I bought the slip on towing mirror from Walmart. Quick adjustments and it works in a pinch but does shake. I plan on getting the OEM for my truck but I was in need of something sooner rather than later. I could see around my trailer just fine. My gripe is that it was driver's side only, a few times it was turn signal and hope that no one was too close to me on the passenger side.

I helped a buddy install a new brake controller last weekend. At the same time, he added some slip on mirrors with the wedges, so it gave me a chance to decide in advance what they might be like for my application. After seeing the wedge setup in place, I quickly decided to bite the bullet and get some real towing mirrors for my own rig.

You could look up west coast mirrors. All I used in the old days, till I got the super duty, not pretty but inexpensive & very functional.

I picked up some K Sourcefor my F150 from etrailer.com. I have no complaints. They fit well, install in seconds, and are easily removed. Much cheaper in my case than OEM or aftermarket tow mirrors.

When I replaced my original non-tow mirrors I did not get the turn chevron in the mirror. I absolutely hate that. When you are turning with the turn signal on especially at night you can not see behind you since that blinking chevron blinds you. Or me anyway.
