'08 vs '99-'07 towing mirrors

For those of you that changed your '99-'07 tow mirrors for the '08 style, do you like them better? Specifically the function of the mirror itself and the blind spot mirror not the heat, blinker etc. I have an '01 with the wimpy paddle mirrors and am going to change them for some towing mirrors. Just don't know if it is worth the extra $160 for the '08 style(would like the mirrors themselves to be power, don't care about the other stuff). Priced from A1.

Thanks.

I'm in the minority. I don't like the lines of the mirrors with the older body lines - just my .02
What are y'all looking at that you have blind spots with the older style ? I've never had a problem seeing rear of me and I am not an over the shoulder looker either.

I love the 08+ mirrors way better than the 99-07 ones. You can see so much better.

I broke my drivers side mirror against a tree on my 01, so I had to replace it. Rockauto.com has replacement telescoping mirrors that fit perfectly for $85 NEW. The telescoping mirror makes seeing what the trailer is doing MUCH easier. Now Im thinking I just might accidentally bust the passenger side mirror next time we go offroad.....

I changed my 01 tow mirrors out with 09 tow mirrors and I would definately recommend them. I tow a trailer alot and it is totally worth it.

I really like my 08+ mirrors. While they don't look like they are much bigger the visibility was really improved.
