Review of K Source Custom Towing Mirrors KS61183-84F


Today, we'll be reviewing Part Number KS61183-84F. These are the K-Source Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors. Both the driver and passenger side are included. To see if they're going to fit your particular year, make and model, please refer to the vehicle list at the bottom of the product page. The extendable towing mirrors replace your factory side view mirrors on your vehicle. They offer a telescoping feature that's going to be perfect for those who frequently tow a trailer, making it easier when you park, change lanes, and pass. All you have to do is pull the mirrors away from your vehicle to extend the lines of sight, making it easier to see around the side of your trailer. When not in use, you just push the mirrors back in, or when you need to park, that's also a great thing to do, is just get the mirrors back in to the fully retracted position.

That's going to eliminate the need for snap on or strap on mirrors that you constantly have to install and uninstall. Each mirror is going to feature LED turn signal with high-intensity LED lamps. That way, the signals can be seen from pretty far away. Each mirror is also going to feature a spotter mirror here on the bottom. That's going to further help reduce the chances of blind spots. The larger mirror is a heated mirror face that's going to help melt away ice and snow, and it's also going to prevent fog up.

Here at the bottom of each housing are the built-in puddle lights that will illuminate the area under the mirror so that you can get into and out of your vehicle safely. Just to show you, those are on both. That right there. The mirrors are able to fold up against the truck for parking or for fitting into tight spaces. That is a manual adjustment. The custom design is going to provide a perfect, secure fit for your vehicle that uses factory connections for electric turn signal and puddle lamp functions.

Its also going to have the same footprint and use the same mounting points as the factory mirrors. We're going to go over the dimensions real quick. I'm just going to use one mirror since they're both going to measure the same. Overall length in its fully retracted position is going to give us a measurement of right around 19 inches or so, and then the extension is going to extend it out to 22.5 inches. That's about 3.5-inch extension that we have when it comes to being able to extend these out for towing. The mirror face, measuring the width, is going to give us a width of about 8 inches, and I'm measuring just the mirror. Overall height, and now, I'm measuring from overall, so from the bottom of the spotter mirror to the top of the larger mirror, its going to give us a measurement of about 10.5 inches.

The larger one itself is going to measure about 6.5 inches and the shorter one is going to measure about 3.5 inches. That's going to do it for today's review of Part Number KS61183-84F. You also want to keep in mind that you cannot upgrade to a power mirror with turn signal, heat, and puddle lamp if your OEM mirror is not already equipped with those functions. Also, the mirror does not include memory, auto-dimming, power fold, or power extended functions. That completes today's review of the K-Source Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors, Part Number KS61183-84F. .
