Are you talking about cipa OEM replacements, or clip ons? I can't speak to the OEM replacments, but I used to tow with cipa clip on mirrors, and went to the factory "flip outs". The clip ons were a PITA and the ball joint was so loose the mirrors would gradually tilt down over a trip. The factory flip outs are killer: I can control their angles from the cockpit and they have built in heaters. You do have to manually flip them.
of course im partial to the full replacement mirrors, so my vote is that they are superior.
having a full 10" x 10" viewing surface along with the 4.5" extendable arms allow for high visibility while towing. the marker / blinker lights and heat / electric built in is just additional reasons to upgrade. how much are you guys paying for oem tow mirrors ?
you can get a set of these for $400, i didnt think the oem's were much less than that.
I went with the flip mopar tow mirrors and frankly I'm not impressed. The vision wasnt as good as I thought it would be. when traveling I like to see the trailer and stuff and when backing up I like to see the tops of my rear wheels. So I have to adjust the mirrors everytime I switch because you cant leave it in a spot for both. The littl square mirror is a waste as well as it is never in the right spot. are they better than the regular mirrors. in some ways, but I was able to see both with the regular mirrors.
