I cannot speak for the quality of theí08 aftermarkets, but the Syppos are good in the Ď17ís, but shake at idle a bit more than I would like, and the fisheye only adjusts in and out, not up and down as the factory units do. Hope this helps you with features to look for.

The convex mirror on my Syppo's adjust in all directions. I wonder what's up with yours.

Maybe I need to push harder. That would definitely change how much I like them. That is my biggest hangup with them. Regardless, they give much better field of view than the stockers.

I can also attest to the a1auto mirrors. I put the 08+ manual telescoping, folding mirrors on my previous 7.3. Night and day difference for towing. Will do the same for my current '05, but I will spring for the power folding ones. That was the one feature I wish I had.

I like the @1AAuto.com mirrors but mine do seem to shake still while driving. Any mods to reduce it?

That's funny, I have the same mirrors and thought I was the only person that still gets a slight shake from them!

Yeah I was very disappointed when I noticed it. I think it has alot to do with my leaf spring front end but still... I wonder if there is anyway to mod the mirror glass to stiffen it up some.

I was too. I paid the extra 100 (plus I had to order amber lenses sense I didn't want the smoked ones) in hopes they wouldn't shake. I have front 4x4 springs and was running surplus military tires at the time (not known for balancing well) so had always hoped it was that. Got new, normal tires and they still move. Haven't gotten around to talking to them about it yet.

I have the left spring 4x4 on mine and so far I have not noticed any shake in these mirrors. I have absolutely falling in love with them, I love the visibility from them especially when towing and reversing the trailer.

Ya I love the mirrors and the viability that comes with them, and many reviews are the same as yours that they don't shake. Mine however do so it's a little disappointing.
