You Guys are making me poor!

Hey guys, just a funny note here. So like many of you, I have been wanting to get a set of towing mirrors for the old Dodge for a while, but have been reluctant to spend the $$. Well, thanks to whoever brought back up that thread about the mirrors...I sat here in the school library between classes today searching mirror prices instead of studying for finals....but oh well, I found a great deal, and will have a much cooler looking truck; not to mention be able to see around my trailers better. So, to all you who continue improving your trucks, you are bringing the rest of us along with you! (No matter if our wallets like it or not...)

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

I ended up getting the mirrors for $67 each! Thats not power, obviously. And the brackets for $32. Not to shabby.

Out of curiosity, what changed in 02 that is different from the earlier models that they have a different mirror? Or, is it possible to use an 02 mirror on say a '99?
