New TV, need help-tow mirrors

OK gang, after almost 15 years and 181k miles I bought a new to me 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Bighorn. The truck is like new, I LOVE it!! many years ahead of my beloved workhorse 98. I am wanting slip on tow mirrors for it. My 98 had a set, molded poly, one screw to attach by hand, easy and perfect. It seems I cannot find a set for the 09. I have the puddle light/turn signal heated mirrors. I don't really want a "fits all strap on type" and I'm def not changing out the whole mirror assembly for the factory tow mirrors. Any help is welcomed!! MPJ

Tow Mirrows

I have an 08 Dodge ram 1500 v8 Hemi and I believe that I have the same style mirrows you have.I bought these last year and they just snap over the OEM mirrows on my Dodge. They are by K source Fit Systems model #80700 another part number that was on the box was 36-2526-4 . They work great ,just enough to see the running lights on the back of the AS. Bought them on the internet.

We put these on our 2012 Ram 1500:

Aero Grand Towing Mirrors 2912

They're not too stylish, but work really well and are easy to install. We tried the "strap-on" type, but spent too much time adjusting, re-tightening, and having them fall off, particularly when it was raining.

Given their importance I fail to see why a few $$ is important. The DODGE Towing mirrors I added to my 3/4T still aren't as good as I would like (then again, neither are the FORD or Chevy OEM offerings).

I will probably add CIPA replacements to mine as the 10"x10" offers the best field of view I've yet seen.

And probably add MULTIVEX overlays as I did on my last truck.

Frankly, when towing, what is behind one and coming on is the future and can be more important than what is directly in front of one.

Don't cheap out on mirrors.

It was our experience that in mirrors at least ... you get what you pay for ... small investment now / big savings later in avoided mishaps. There are places to save $$ , but in our opinion, mirrors are not the place.

I too have the Aero Grand mirrors and clamp them on the top side of my truck mirrors. Excellent mirrors.

I went to walmart and bought a pair of mirrow that had suction cups used to attach to the truck mirrow. They worked ok but were difficult to adjust.
