Hi TB folks-

Has anyone ever upgraded there mirrors to include the blind spot safety feature? I think that the larger towing style mirrors have this but I'm
looking for the mirrors that look like the stock OEM ones. They currently are heated but that's it. Thanks in advance! - Dave

It comes with a “safety “ package and uses the rear bumper parking sensors tied into the BCM. The $3 mirror mentioned above works better 👍

I don't think it uses the parking sensors, there's radar modules in behind the bumper steps specifically for the blindspot system.
 
Has anyone just changed out the mirror glass on the passenger side before? How hard is it? Item show is from Amazon.

I removed my bumper steps to access my exhaust tips and didn’t see any electronics in there? But then again Im usually 50% wrong 1/2 the time🤣
 
Mine are under the hood in the windshield washer fluid container🤣

That's a better track record than I have. Just ask my wife.

Nope. If they do it's for LTZ or High Country trims. Definitely not on Trail Boss. Trail Boss trailering mirrors are plain. Only power feature is the upper glass, and it has defrost. Manual fold, manual extension, manual retract, manual convex mirror. Worst part is, getting these mirrors means you lose a technology package for parking sensors, 360° camera, blind spot detection, memory seats, cooled seats, rearview camera mirror, etc. You don't even get the necessary hardware installed on the rear bulkhead behind the backrest of the back seat.
 
The yellow X is the location of the radar unit, fastened to the back of the bumper step inside a protective cover. .

Well that's not true.

The sensors are behind the bumper near the step cutouts. My wife has the truck or I'd go take a picture.
Welp i was wrong... i always thought they were in rear tailights🤦‍♂️
