The first design is the same as the tow mirrors found on the 2007.5 to 2013, the second design is the ones with the amber LED lights on the body and red on the mirror glass.

I have a 2016 2500HD crew cab with LTZ package. I have small power fold with the blinkers in the mirrors and I think heated.

I see had I ordered the truck with towing mirrors they would be power fold. If I order a replacement set from GM they say they are not power fold. What is the correct answer. can I get a set of Gm towing mirrors with power fold

Thanks

I have the tow mirrors on my 2500HD and they leave a lot to be desired. I really wish they were just a full length standard mirror and I could then put a small stick on convex mirror in the corner. The split mirrors are not the greatest in tight situations. A mirror trying to be a Class 8 West Coast style and failing miserably. I have been trying to find a replacement that would have the same housing but be a one piece mirror, but to no avail.

I just bought a pair of tow mirrors that was listed, they have the led turn signal. They worked great but when i go to unlick my doors the fuse for the door unlick blows, in woundering is it bc when i hit unlock the leds in the mirror flash as well? I mean its only 14 extra total LEDs and shouldnt make it blow. Instead if a 15 like recommended i put all the way up to a 25 and it STILL blew!! And ideas or suggestions???

I have a pair from Amazon on my 06, they're holding up great so far after a year. The turn signals aren't that bright and are probably not visible in daylight though. When towing a travel trailer these things are a Godsend!!

2011 GMC Denali Duramax HD. 1. I don't understand why they come with the 1500 mirrors. And B. When I installed the upgraded amber LED tow mirrors I had to adjust the drivers glass completely outward to even see the road a little bit. It still reflects mostly on my truck. It's the same case with the blind spot lens as well. The passenger side I can see perfectly fine with room to adjust it out even further. Only the driver side I am having this issue. Is there any way to adjust the pivot position?

I would check & make sure that the mounting bolts are seated properly. It sounds like u could possibly have a bolt that is not all the way seated in the hole. If this is the case I would assume it would be the front-most bolt causing the mirror to be angled towards the truck. Or this could have nothing to do with it. Lol. Let us know what u find out.

Thinking about these for my 16 Sierra 1500. It has the little mirrors with turn signals, power, heated, and power fold. Will these plug and play? It looks like they will but it doesn't specifically says so from what I see.
