  • Replacement Towing Mirrors for a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD
  • The CIPA mirrors that you have referenced, # CM71700, are the correct towing mirrors for a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD. However, any additional features on factory mirrors (turn signals, automatic dim, memory, puddle lights, etc.) are not included on these mirrors and those functions will be lost. We also have K-Source mirrors # KS62093-94G that will fit. These mirrors are heated, electric, and have turn signals built-in and those features will work if the truck currently has these functions.

  • What Heated Powered Mirrors for a 2010 Chevy Silverado C2500

This is a set of both driver and passenger towing mirrors that provide electric adjustment and heat functions. They manually extend and retract up to 4-1/2 inches and they fold up against the vehicle when you are in tight spaces. These use the existing mirror mounting holes; no drilling required.

  • How Far Does CIPA Electric Towing Mirror # CM71700 Extend Out

  • What is the Total Width of CIPA Magna Custom Electric Heated Extendable Towing Mirrors # CM71700
  • When extended fully the CIPA Magna Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors, part # CM71700, measure 22-1/2 inches overall. When retracted with their full 4-1/2-inch range of adjustment they measure 18-inches. The main mirror measures 6 x 9-1/2-inches; the spotter mirror measures 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 inches. I have linked a photo illustration that provides several measurements. Please note that the heat and electric adjustment functions on these mirrors must be present on the vehicle OEM mirrors since...

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Yukon
  • We can offer you universal-fit mirrors that will work just fine. A popular option is the K-Source Universal Clip-On Towing Mirror # KS3891. The linked video illustrates their construction and installation. I spoke with my contact at CIPA and because the 2015 GMC Yukon has a new mirror design there are no custom fits available. All universal-fit towing mirrors are shown on the link.

  • Towing Mirrors Made in The USA That Fit a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body
  • I spoke with my contact at K-Source, and they stated that the towing mirrors, like the KS62077-78G you referenced, are not manufactured in the United States. I recommend the CIPA Magna Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors, part # CM71700, made in the US. These mirrors will extend as much as 4-1/2 inches, which is very useful if you are towing a trailer. the mirrors also fold flat against the truck for fitting into tighter spaces.

  • Will CIPA Towing Mirrors # CM71700 Fit a 2009 Chevy Tahoe with Turn Signals and Electric Retract
  • You can use the CIPA towing mirrors # CM71700 on your 2009 Chevy Tahoe. The electric mirror face operation will work but other features will not since your factory mirrors do not have a heat function. Also these mirrors do not have turn signals so that feature will be lost as will the power retract feature.

  • Mirror Recommendation for a 2008 GMC Sierra that Keeps Hitting a Bridge
  • The shortest mirror we offer that would fit your 2008 GMC Sierra would be the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors part # CM71700. These extend out 17-1/2 inches from the truck whereas the other mirrors we carry stick out an inch or so further. Either way the best way to stop breaking the mirror will be to avoid that bridge if you can, and to be extra cautious when you do have to drive by it.

  • Are the Mirror Surfaces of the CIPA Magna Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors # CM71700 Flat or Convex
  • The CIPA Magna Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors # CM71700 that you referenced has flat mirror surfaces on both of the main mirrors surfaces. The smaller blind spot mirror is convex for a wider viewing angle. An easy way to tell if a mirror is convex or not is if it has the, "images in mirror are closer than they appear," message.
