Edit: Tow mirrors of course.

I've already searched and found some threads, but I haven't seen anyone actually do it. I understand they can and will get tore up on the trails, I can swap my OEM ones back on then.

So here's my question.

Would they fit? Would the wiring match up? IMO the stock ZJ mirrors are too small sometimes. Id love to see how a ZJ looks with them before I go spending the money on them.

What year ram? I have seen them on a Tacoma, and it didn't look bad.

x2^ which ram?
i think a ZJ would look badass with a set of clearance lights and a pair of big tow mirrors

Reliability is relative

The newer tow mirrors on like 02-present rams. Not the old chrome POS ones. I wanna do it, I just don't know how the wiring will have to be done. I saw a 98 Tahoe, a 97 Chevy 1500 with them. They both looked good. But I've never seen a set on a ZJ.

It's worth it to me. If I don't like it, I got a 01 Ram or 13 Ram that can have them. Win either way for me. Give me a few weeks and ill post some pictures. I'm determined....

Might have to change the connectors. Test the voltage and amp draw on your zj ones, hook up the others and test, if its close I would say go for it. I'll bet they are.

Yeah, I figured I'd have to change the connectors, maybe splice here and there. It may look weird since ZJs are small with big *** mirrors, but it could also look badass... I might photoshop something up.


Here's what I'm looking at:

Haven't had a chance to place an order. Plus funds are limited right now. Give me a month or so.
