    They do offer power folding in for the whole mirror arm, but not to rotate from standard to towing position.

    Thanks, this is what I was asking. Should have been more specific.

    They should make a Ford mirror conversion for the Rams because they are just that much better in every way. The Ram blind spot mirrors are too small and the shape isn't good, then when you flip them, the orientation of everything is off. Ford and GM both have power fold and extend also.

    And Ford needs to learn about auto up windows. My 2003 GM had that. I think even through 2016 that was not an option on the Lariat trim.

    :lol: Should have included a :smokin: with my reply....with as many Dodge-boys as there are on here to razz about ghost trailers and having their ears turned out....sometimes it's overly "assumed"

    Hell yes, I like the Ford mirrors way more than the Dodge ones. The Ford mirrors are like damn billboards and you can see everything.
    Bruh, my ghost trailer is quite long. Plus having them flipped up makes it easier to see around the fenders.

    My 2016 xlt f250 has auto up and down on both front windows, rear door windows have no auto function. I guess they finally started figuring that out. It was one of my gripes too.

    Finesse bro. I hate having to sit there and hold the button when I want to roll it all the way up or down. Or just hit the button a second time and it will stop rolling down ;)

    I was just saying the other day it's probably one of the nicest things about my truck. How it took so damn long for auto up passenger windows, like having a flash on a cell phone before they figured to use it as a flash light.

    I used my tow mirrors once when I was towing to Chocco last summer. Even with my trailer being 34' I felt they weren't needed.
    But when we take our camper out (26') I use them since it's more of a giant brick behind the truck.
    BTW- 44,000 trouble free miles on mine currently. There is a fix for the dreaded dead pedal. Feel free to PM about what helps it tremendously.

    All of them have it but the Aisins is the most noticeable. Mine was pretty bad when towing a decent load.

    Spill the beans!!!! I have the Aisin and it is bad. I'm thinking about deleting and 4.30 gears real soon. I know the deleting will take care of the dead pedal. If you have a solution I will probably just probably re-gear.

    Yeah, that's been going on for years (since the 13 or 14 models??), and I haven't heard of any resolution.

    How much off list price should someone be able to get on a Laramie this time of year? I've seen them marked down 12k.

    Laramie? If so, take good care of it so that I'll have a nice truck in a few years :D

    But seriously, a gray Cummins Laramie with Ramboxes is a dang nice combo.
