New Towing Mirrors !!

I purchased some towing mirrors for my suburban which has the factory small power mirrors and they are aweful for towing even with the extensions added .So I happened to see these on Ebay and they are new aftermarket power mirrors that look like the ones that come on the 2006 and newer pickups and suburbans that have the factory towing mirror option. These new ones don`t have the integrated turnsignals but what is better the turnsignals or a safe view of that silver bullet.If any one is interested just search for them in the Ebay motors section for towing mirrors. This company has them for many brands and models.The name of the company is bibitcom.They are alot cheaper than some from the Chevy dealer to.So far they look good ,fit and finish is good, and have an awesome rear view for that silver bullet .They also have built in spot mirrors and give my 2500 Suburban a more brute look.

The wiring connected fine and even had the push in hold downs in the factory locations to hold the wiring to the door.They operate very well . The hardest thing about the install was taking off the door panels.They have alot more fastening points than the Suburbans of the 70`s thru 90`s.. The passenger side only had one connection as opposed to the factory mirrors having two connections probably due to the integrated turnsignals,ilumination,heat function,etc. The new ones did have two connections as did the factory ones for the drivers side.

Thumbs up

They are great, look just like factory.

Our Burb was optioned for them, but came thru without, had to get them replaced under warranty. What a difference!!
