Do a search on the dodge mirrors. I would post the link but can't remember what it was.... There is a nice black & red cc/swlb with them on there that look real nice! That is what had me looking at doing this swap until things broke and then I saw the ones I wanted.... Should be soon!

well bit the bullet and ordered a set today, just got the standard manual type, i decided i didn't want to deal with wiring, it was cheaper, and i never move my mirrors once set anyways

Great write Great white.
I love the look of these. Even better than the GM TTM's IMO. I've been running them for a couple years now and still think its one of the best mods for our trucks, that and a fuel pressure gauge.
If you can get over putting a "dodge" part on your truck these are great (hell I'll put a Cummins in it, I don't care). My install was simular to yours ,but no electrical. I would have done mine with the factory defrost switch like you did also. The 92-94 could be done using a factory switch also. In 92-94 some of the Suburbans had the dash trim panel that had knock out plates for switches in every slot.
Here was my write up. for some different pictures. http://www.thetruckstop.us/forum/showthread.php?10702-Trailer-tow-mirrors-(DIY)

I think this is still just a mod. I know the originator of the post has been gone awhile.

There are GM style towing mirrors available for our bodystyle trucks, they are a direct bolt on.

I have seen the GM style mirrors and they are a second choice for me. I really like the Dodge truck mirrors and if they fit right I want them. I never had to look back when I had my Dakota or drove my brothers 2500Ram with the flip out mirrors.

I've got both sets, I like the look of the Dodge better. There is not an adapter plate made you'll just have to drill three new holes.

The style mirrors that are referenced here are the 03-06 style I believe. The earlier trucks didn't have a flip out mirror that I am aware of, and I'm not sure if teh 07+ redesigned body with the 6.7L had teh flip outs or not.
