Tow mirrors I'm stuck...

Looking to get a set of tow mirrors for my truck cause I can't see when hauling round bales down the road I like the obs 4point mirrors like what diesel brad has on his and I like the Dodge mirrors that flip up and since my truck will be in the shop for awhile I got time to install some mirrors. So question is which can you see better with?

As someone who owned a dodge with flip out tow mirrors, I would stay away from them. I hated them. You couldn't see well with them. Grante, I came from a truck with 08+ tow mirrors to the dodge but I did not like the dodge irrors at all. Very little visibility. I have seen pictures of guys putting super duty mirrors on the OBS trucks but you lose the sail window to do that. I would go with the four point OBS mirrors or fa up some super duty mirrors. I def. would NOT go with the dodge mirrors

I'd have them flipped up anyway look better in my opinion and when my truck went down I borrowed a buddys 01 Dodge and saw great with them but I want to think it all through before taking the plung on mirrors

I personally think they look horrible on an OBStruck up or down... and having them flipped up while not towing is lame (agin, just MY opinion)
Here are some pics of an OBS with wings... err Dodge tow mirrors lol

Fab 08+ ford mirrors on it, or hit up the local wrecker and find a ford box van/truck to pull the mirrors from, I still think dodge mirros look retarded, even on a dodge

I hate doge mirros... they get my eyes all messed up when looking out them with the way they split the mirror. If i had to do it, i would go with the 03-07 dmax mirrors as linked above. Small base and large mirror that resembles a SD mirror!
