Does anyone make slip-on towing mirrors for 2014 Grand Cherokee?

I have searched ebay and did google searches, but it seems like nobody is making them yet.

I am looking for something like this...

I was not able to find anything that slips on. I purchase a set of JR Grand Aero Towing Mirrors and I love them. They simply clamp on and you can adjust how far they extend out. They have worked great so far.

Hey! Those look great!

Do they vibrate in the wind at all?

They vibrate a little bit at higher speeds but you can still see clearly. The vibration is only a small amount and not enough to make them feel unsecure. They also have a smaller version that is a tear drop shape but I chose the larger ones. They are pricey but worth it.

If you could choose again, would you go for the tear drops, or stick with the bigger rectangular ones?

I would stick with the large ones. These allow me to rotate them to the vertical position so that I can see from the trailer tires all the way up the side. I wanted to be able to see as much as possible.

Oh, good point.

Well I purchased a set of the square ones yesterday. I read the website and they boast being wind-tested to 240 mph for vibration and stability, so...when I drive 220 they should be fine.

I saw several others for $20-$50 but you know how they say...get what you pay for.

Thanks for your help!

Ordered them on the 2nd, and estimated delivery was Wednesday the 10th. We got them TODAY on the 4th!!! Free shipping!

Talk about great service!!!

We bought them from ebay from seller sales4lesstou, if anybody wants to do business with them.

From another thread where someone asked me to post on how well these worked out for me...

OK, got motivated to do it this morning. Mounted one on the jeep, and the other on my truck. Test drove with the truck. First position I did not like as much, but that is the position I made the short video of. There is a little bit of vibration, but not so much that the mirrors are rendered useless. I think if i pulled them closer to the original mirror I would lose some of the vibe.


After i got back home, I moved them a couple more times, and found a position I liked better. I might even cut off some of the pole so I can bring them in a little closer, but not until I have tried this while actually towing the trailer first, and I find that I can live without the extra couple inches.
