They snap right on, a special cutout is there for the light on the mirror. In order to fold in the mirrors with these attached you'll have to file some of the plastic trim on the inside of the mirror. I use these mirrors to tow my 27' travel trailer, they work great and the price isnt too bad.
I got those also for towing the RV

Be warned this route is not the cheapest!! I got the mirrors as a gift and bought the rest to install properly.

For anyone who has the standard power folding (non-tow) mirrors and wants to retain the power fold option you can purchase mirrors from 1A auto. They are top notch and OEM quality. However they do not come with the brackets that the Mopar mirrors do so you need to purchase them separately along with the rivnuts and bolts. See link for tow Mopar tow mirror installation instructions, https://moparonlineparts.com/docs/82214909AB.pdf

I couldnt find out ANYTHING about rotating the mirrors up.
I asked the dealerships serrvice MGR. Who is a real car guy and a friend of mine. I showed him the rotated mirrors and asked him if the up position made the mirror weaker while driving in hi winds at freeway speeds if the force of that could in anyway damage the mirrors.
He said no, they are designed to do this. I asked him if this info. Was anywhere in owner manuals and if so where.
He said he doesnt think that they put that anywhere and why they would leave that info. Out.
The drivers mirror rotates up counter clockwise, & the passenger side mirror rotates up clockwise.
I cant believe that i have towed my travel trailer for the last 2 summers not even realizing this was possible.

Try rotating the mirrors to the up and down postion, they work much better this way and a much larger field of view. Its a difference that works better than aftermarket mirrors, try it you will see a huge improvement.
