    Some of the lowest prices I've seen! Thumbs Up

    Do the Yukon/Tahoe/Suburban mirrors from similar years fit the pickup doors?

    Also, can anyone point out a factory wiring schematic for the power/heated mirrors so that they can be installed on a truck without them?

    Ordered a pair of these and installed them today. All I can say is wow! They look great and the view out of them is incredible... so much better than those little stock mirrors!

    Well worth the price if you're looking for an upgraded larger mirror.

    Here's a few shots of mine. The new mirrors are only about 3" wider than the stock ones but they look much bigger.

    For me the best feature, besides the increased view, is that the passenger mirror is regular glass so I get a truer image when using it. I think it makes it easier to judge distances, etc.

    Did you hook up power, heat, or marker light? Did you have power or heat before? They look great, Looks like you leveled the mirrors, or did they come that way?

    No, I haven't wired anything yet. The truck has no power anything so it'll be homegrown wiring all the way. For now I'll probably just hook up the heat and LED if I can find the time on a warm day. Come spring/summer I'll do the whole shebang.


    They do look impressive. What you see is the install right out of the box. They're designed for the 88-98 OBS so the have that OEM fit. They're also made in Taiwan so the quality is a bit better than some cheap Chinese knock-off.

    I am very impressed with them. I'd been looking for a set of stainless west coast mirrors but when I saw these I said gotta have 'em!

    After 5 days and 2 storms I'm liking these mirrors more and more each day. The improved visibility, especially at night, makes the expense worthwhile in my opinion.

    The only complaint I have is that the glass vibrates at high speed. It's no worse than than my stock replacements were, but the larger mirror surface magnifies the problem.
