    What kind have you used? Brand, ebay or amazon? Do the shake, did they brake?

    Saw there are 2 styles out there, 1 with a small mirror in a corner and 1 with the 1 entire end is another mirror. Need power and heated. Saw some that have built in turn signals in the glass and in the mirror body, kinda leaning towards a set of these. Not sure if I like the "squarish" look of the arm though.
    Any opinions welcome.[​IMG]

    I bought the Trail Ridge from 1A Auto. Definitely recommend them. Parked next to my step-fathers truck with OEM tow mirrors and couldn't tell the difference. I added the support brackets from @AllMoparParts.com on here and there is no shake or vibration at all. All in I think it cost me $560 and I sold my factory ones for $300

    Do you have any info on the support brackets? I could only find ones for 2nd and 4th gen trucks. Looks like the ones I pictured are 4th gen style. I'll have to pay attention to trucks and see how they look in person.

    Not sure. Mine is 4th gen. Both me and my son bought the Trail Ridge and brackets. Check with @AllMoparParts.com on here.

    The square arm is the 4G style for the 3G truck. Personally, while I like the appearance of the mirror more, I don't like the large convex mirror of the 4G style mirror glass.
    I find it really quite annoying to drive with. I'm sure I would get used to it with time, but that's my $.02
