Tow Mirrors

1086 15
I love my tow mirrors on my 06. I want to get my father some for his 99. I am finding out that the ones that are offered from Dodge do not come with the Power/Heated option. I called and they said that because of the age they only come without those options. Does anyone know if there is another source out there that offers the tow mirrors with Power/Heated option?

If ya happen to come across em let me know. The previous owner of my truck must have had the towing mirrors added later, cuz there's a big hole in my pillar where the power window knob was at one time. I was always wonderin what that was all about.

IIRC, some put the 3rd gen head on the 2nd gen base. I believe pro99 and IC Smoke on this site have done it.

The thing is, the lady I spoke with at the Dodge place said something like, people will buy the set for the 99 and then find a new set and fabracate a way to make it work. 1. I nor my father are that mechanically inclined and 2. I wasn't wanting to break the bank to make it happen.

you can buy a set of early 3rg gen power tow mirrors and a set of 2nd gen non-power tow mirrors and put the 3rg gen head on the 2nd gen base.

Either the Kool Vues or there is some instructions floating around about how toe make the 3rd gens works on second gen bases. It requires some wiring and some extra supports IIRC.

Not to hijack...

how is swapping bases cost effective? buying 4 mirrors? i assume the 3rd gens are pretty pricey plus the cost of the 2nd gens, unless they can be had for dirt cheap at a junkyard? im just confused?:confused:

i would definately do this if it was cheaper than just buying the kool-vues

Ok guys, just got off the phone with Diehl Auto Parts-Fenderworld. I found them from the link that Weasel gave us. They have what we are looking for. According to the guy I spoke with, they will mount right up the the 2nd Gen trucks. You do have to be a $30 mounting kit along with the mirrors. You are looking at a total of around $300. Definately doable for my father's birthday. I even ask if once they were mounted will there be any difference from where the factory mirrors where. He said the only difference is the mirror itself. Thanks again Weasel!!
