Are There Any Disadvantages to Using Tow Mirrors?

Hey guys, so I ordered my truck just before they announced the job 2 version, which meant I couldn’t get the tow mirrors with the PowerBoost. Now they’re available for an extra $250. Do you think there are any downsides to getting tow mirrors? It seems like a smart upgrade for better visibility, even though I won’t be towing massive stuff all the time. More mirror means more safety, right? Just want to make sure I’m not overlooking anything before I go ahead and make the change to my order.

The only issue I’ve had with tow mirrors is that if a rock hits the mirror outside the replaceable top cap, you have to replace the entire mirror assembly. Apart from that, every truck I’ve owned since 2013 has had tow mirrors.

Improved visibility is provided by tow mirrors, which is beneficial for safety. The disadvantages include larger rooms being harder to fit into and more wind noise. If these aren’t your biggest worries, adding tow mirrors to your truck might be a good idea.
