extendable towing mirrors for 01/02 HD


Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any that work for an 01/02? I cant see around or behind my trailer when towing.

 

I see the newer trucks have them extendable, and from what Ive read its only usable from 03-05. Id like some of these for my 01

I've used them all, the manual factory towing mirrors on my 99 2500, the Lucerex (CIPA) towing mirrors on my 01 2500HD, the TTT Power Mirrors on my 03 2500HD, and finally the Factory Power towing mirrors on my 04 2500HD.

 

The best in my opinion were the TTT mirrors (shown below) second are the GM factory power extenders (but they need convex mirrors added)

 

The Lucerix were the worst as I could not see down the side of my 36' 8'6" wide car hauler.

The factory towing mirror on the '01-'02 trucks was a manual sliding mirror.

 

 

 

 

On my '01, I have the electric retractable mirrors. I bought my truck that way. I do not know if the style of my truck made a difference, being a CC/LL/DRW, but they did have them for '01 vehicles.

 

I am in need of motor for one of them...

Steve...

 

The TTT mirrors do you have a picture front showing both mirrors retracted... And how far do they stick out when retracted...

 

Thanks

I just have the mirrors that slip on over the factory mirrors. They do the trick and when I'm not towing, I take them off. The look of the smaller factory mirrors is nicer than any extendale towing mirrors that I've seen on the market.

Do you have a picture of them?

 

The extendable factory mirrors I saw on 01-02s were a manual extension. Does anyone know if the factory extenedables with the 2 chrome tubes were power operated? Not power extend, just power adjustable.

 

Are the two pics above aftermarket mirrors? How do you activate the extend? Does the stock mirror switch activate the extend?

What do those slip on extensions run?

Mattt - The manual camper mirrors extend manually AND adjust manually. I have them on my 03 and really like them. I like the more sleek look and they are a little more quiet when cruising because the air can flow between the two arms. They also have a convex spot mirror in the corner which really helps. They are a great size for towing slide-in campers. Another thing that most people don't realize is that the manual mirrors give you better visibilty up front and to the side of the truck because you can see between the two arms. NOT SO on the electric camper mirrors (very bulky). I plan on ordering a set from partsdirect.com as soon as my new ride gets in (the new LS does not offer them). They are listed at $160 a piece IIRC. I will gladly forego the power adjustment. Good mirrors.

I would have to find the pic. I activate them by a switch inside the door panel. I will find the pic. Give me a bit to find it.

I agree, I replaced mine over the stock mirrors that came with the Truck.

Here are some pics I have of those mirrors. I didn't clean them to show quality but you'll get the idea.

 

Door Panel: Switch is next to the speaker. Kind of a bad spot. Maybe that is why one motor is burnt out? See the inside mirror controls still can still adjust the mirrors while extended.

Edited...

 

After doing some more research, I am beginning to believe these are not the stock mirrors. maybe it's time for some new mirrors?

I apologize...

 

You may be right. I had to more research and I am finding that my mirrors are different from what I see online. Possibly the previous owner modified it?
