Hi: All... More pic's of the mirrors. They are direct custom mirrors for specific models and brands. Ordering was simply imputting your make/model etc. They came with both chrome and black caps so will fit SE & LE models. What I ordered are heated and powered and plugged into the truck plug in the door. Finding that plug was an adventure and the second door went much faster than the first. There are no directions to look at even as a last resort!!! Alf

Hi: Again... What I ordered from 1-A Auto was #1AMRP 01310 $239. pr. Free shipping no tax, and ordered on Fri. delivered UPS to our site at Oyster Bay on Tue. WOW...what a deal. There's an 800# 888-844-3393 which we used as the wifi here is spotty at best. I'll try a link here 1A Auto : Aftermarket Auto Parts, Car Body Parts, Replacement & New Automobile and Truck Parts | Buy Discount Car & Auto Parts Online then look up trailer tow mirrors etc.

Here we go again... The final Frontier!!! Here's a pic of me plugging in the new mirror. BTW some of the comments from my helpers..."I don't like the sound of that"!!! Pulling apart the door panel, taking off the armrest, to find the bolts is nerve wracking!!! All nuts and hex head screws are 10mm as these trucks are built in USA, South America, Africa, Australia, and Europe to name a few places. Alf

Those look great, Alf. I think this is the ultimate type mirror for towing for vehicles not equipped with them from the start. I know having used them on larger pickups for many years now, but are the cat's meow. So quick and easy to use, and nothing to store.

Alf, do these mirrors auto-fold back against the window when the ignition is turned off?

Hi: Donna D... They are manual fold back. The memory ones were more $$'s, and the OEM's on the truck were manual too. Alf

Alf, we're there really NO directions at all? While they seem to be a simple, "plug and play" design, I'm always reluctant to perform open-door panel surgery on my '11 Frontier. Wish I knew about these before I bought the Milenco's last year
