    Just ordered for my 18. Hopefully they fit well. I’ll post pix after install. Have you experienced any issues with them vibrating in the wind in excessive amounts? I think I read that in another thread. I’m sure something can be done to reduce it regardless if there is.

    The ones I ordered don’t. The memory feature may work if you have it though.

    No vibration to speak of. I just made sure that the gasket is seated correctly on the back of the mirror. Tightened the mounting nuts really good and hoped for the best. I have had good luck with this brand, as I had the non BSM version on my previous truck. Their warranty (LifeTime) seems to be good as well.

    No power fold or memory function on these as my truck is only a Limited.

    I can live without memory. Power fold, signals/running light, bsm, puddle lamps is a must though!

    No puddle light on any of the tow mirrors that I’m aware of. Guessing you have a Platinum (hence the power fold inquiry). The running lights don’t work on that model but the signals do work. I have the 1AAuto tow mirrors on my 2013. In 1.5years I’ve had them replaced under warranty 3 times. First had faulty wiring from the factory, second had lots of play in the folding arm, third the power fold stopped working occasionally and would only fold/un-fold half way. Warranty return process has been quick and easy though.

    Memory has been an important feature for me since the mirrors are in different spots for normal driving vs when they are extended for towing.

    I have been looking for a tow mirror option and in previous years know that there were some mounting issues with aftermarket mirrors. I really like what you guys are saying here and just want to confirm that these mirrors from Trail Ridge are quality and don't have any play once they are installed.

    Thank you,

    Wow thanks for the informative post! I will def stay away from 1A. Stick with OEM mirrors only.

    For me it was an acceptable trade-off. The OEM power folding tow mirrors are around $800 while the 1A mirrors are under $400. I knew I wasn't going to get OEM quality and would likely have some issues so I'm glad their customer service has been top-notch.
