    here is my gmc with the factory tow mirrors. heated, power, turn signal. I have put these mirrors on 2 of my other trucks with aftermarket ones from ebay. pretty good quality.

    i love them, they are much better than the 03-05 power extenting camper style mirrors. there is one blind spot in them but i fixed it with a small convex mirror. if you want a pic i can get you one on the 2 pieces of glass on them

    yeah they will work on 01-07 classic body style, i have them on my 03 and 04 silverado too. i didnt buy the ones with the turn signal though they were too expencive. they would probably always have to be extended on your 05 dups but its on because they look sweet extended.

    I bet they are expensive to replace.

    Did your truck already have heated mirrors? Mine doesn't and I'd like to have heated mirrors.

    My truck came with them (heated, directionals, etc.) and they are great!

    when you put the aftermarket ones on and plugged them in, did you have to have the dealer re-program the computer module? i inquired at my dealer about putting towing mirrors on, and they seemed to think i would have to re-flash the computer, but werent real sure, and its like 80 bucks to do that on top of pricey mirrors. i will put them on reguardless, but if i can save $80, that would be nice!

    no, the dealer tried to tell me the same thing, i was hard headed like usual and said i will do it my anyways and it worked. doesnt happen often but it did this time :laughing: and everything worked on them too

    Haha thats what my fleet looks like with mirrors, i love them for towing and i thought they would be a problem for plowing but they are the best. too bad they couldnt make that bottom convex heated

    Agreed. When I first got a set a few years ago I wondered how they'd be plowing. Once you're used to them they're awesome.
