Towing Mirrors

Not really a Diesel question, but I would think most have them for pulling. Does anyone know where to find extending mirrors that look original for the 88-98 GMs? I have tried several different ones from Amazon that look like the ones on the newer trucks and havenít been able to see anything out of the passenger side. I like the look of the stock mirrors but I really just want some to work.

My 94 K3500 originally had 'California Mirrors', I didn't like them. I removed them and then put these on. They work great. A bit awkward to install, have patience- I found install tips on here.

Those mirrors are great but most of them tend to shake the glass. An easy trick to help that is to get some stick on wheel weights and put them on the back side of the glass.

Try this link, enter right model information...I just guessed based on your signature.

Their quality of mirror seems better, I bought ones for my 02 Duramax and am pretty happy with.
