    Couldnt agree more... Why wouldnt you add tow mirrors to a truck with a tow package.

    Agreed. I have a Furion back up camera for my TT and I leave it on while driving. Would still like to get tow mirrors but with the stock mirrors and camera I can see everything I need while driving.

    Trail Ridge tow mirrors with BSM and smoked marker lights just arrived today. At first glance they look to be of descent quality. I'll post pictures tomorrow if I'm able to get them installed.

    Got them installed. The instructional video on 1aauto.com website made it quite easy.

    Do you have to have blind spot monitoring option on the truck for it work on the mirrors? I have an 2018 SR5. I think the turn signals will work as indicated in another thread just haven't seen anything on the BSM

    I belive so. My truck had bsm before the tie mirrors and it still works... The bsm mirrors only have the indicator light in the mirror. The sensors are in the rear bumper.

    I'll see what I can do tonight, but no promises. Kids go to bed around 7:30 and im usually right behind them. I havent even seen the marker lights and turn signals at night yet so maybe I'll stay up late just for pictures

    Its not that dark out yet but here's a hint at what they look like.
    You cant see the turn signals or marker lights from the front or drivers position.

    The top LED's are the turn signal and the bottom are the marker lights.

    I think you'll see them in front though, ie. oncoming traffic, (as is with most tow lights). I'm not 100 percent sure as I'm always driving, but it would make sense - I snapped pic also, but @awq735 beat me to it by nine minutes! Haha

    Also BSM works IF you already had it with truck, but doesn't account for trailer length keep in mind...

    Got these last year. They work well and I think look pretty good. Couple hundred miles of rough dirt road and they haven’t come loose I found a better deal on Amazon AF8DFE05-C77F-4FCC-AFEF-C028B8F219C5.jpg

    I have a very similar product that I've been running for over a year.
    https://www.amazon.com/Source-Syste...a+tow+mirrors&qid=1557927930&s=gateway&sr=8-6

    Firmly snap on, easy to remove, and I can easily see down both sides of my camper. This was the simplest solution for me.

    Yes, you have to have it already, the existing circuitry and sensors in the bumper.

    However you will gain markers and turn signals. OEM tows have orange caps, Trail Ridge smoked caps. Your preference.

    That's what I figured, I think having that little spot will bug me if it doesn't actually do something. So I will just get the ones without. I appreciate the feedback.

    Just did my 20 minute tow mirror mod. Those quarter panel riders can't hide anymore.

    Which mirrors did you go with? OEM, Trail Ridge, or something else?

    I like those Trail Ridge. They look good. Got the K Source as I picked up my camper yesterday. They worked "OK". Driver side was decent. Passenger side vibrated and was a little fuzzy. Will get the Trail Ridge in another month before I take any long trips.

    A1 auto has good set I bought off eBay no problems. Get a set you will need and be happy with them, will also make your truck more functional.
