I am unfamiliar with a lot of the GM stuff, but I would try and get a set of factory towing mirrors off of a late model GM pickup and install them on your doors.

I know with the Fords the factory dual bar towing mirrors will mount up to the trucks that have the sport type mirrors.

I would think this to be similar with the GM pickups?

a set of factory mirrors that will expand will set you back over $1500

I installed a set of clip-on mirrors and they work just fine.

They're all over in Fleabay for various prices well under what you are saying.

I am not even talking chinese knockoffs.

Yeah you might have to be patient and buy one at a time to get a good deal, but it would be worth it in my opinion.


I am not saying that clip on mirrors don't work, but I don't like to take stuff on and off. Simple as that. Pay for what you want or don't.

Mr. Black, I like the idea of not having to put things on and off. What is Fleabay? I am driving a 97 suburban.

hahaha

gabieone, that is short for Ebay.

I'm not sure what is going to be available for a rig of that year. I made a bold assumption that you had a newer Chevy. Still worth a look though as there are a lot of great deals on ebay motors for what you are looking for.

Edit,

Something like these would be ideal. Although I can't vouch for their quality (probably foriegn but that don't always mean bad). I don't think the oem mirrors from the new chevy trucks mounts are the same as the 90s trucks.

I have the same mirrors for my 2000 F150, they work well and that is good price also. I paid like 60.00 for mine.
