Towing Mirror Options for a 2016 RAM 2500 Lone Star


I have a 16 2500 Lone Star Ram truck. I see some mirrors dont fit SLT. I dont see Lone Star listed, I think its the same as Long horn trim package but only sold in TX and called Lone star there. Not sure if it has SLT style mirrors. My side mirrors have the blinker and puddle lights and are retractable. Which towing mirror that I can install at home are my options? I like the style of KS80710 and CM11400 but not sure if they will fit. Need them to pull a 26 foot horse trailer. Please advise. Thanks

From what I could find it looks like the Longhorn and Lone Star trim packages are based off of the SLT version of the 2016 Ram 2500 so you'll need to use different towing mirrors than the K-Source # KS80710 or CIPA # CM11400 that you referenced.

If you want to retain OEM looking mirrors on your Ram then you'll either need to use the K-Source # KS60193-94C which are manual flip-out mirrors and don't carry all of the current functions that you have or the K-Source # KS60195-96C which are flip-out mirrors as well but they have the electric/heat, signal, and puddle lamp functions like what you mentioned. It's a bit more pricey but that's because these are the best option out there and they give you a great OEM look.

For a more cost-effective solution I recommend the K-Source # KS3891-2 because of how popular they are among our customers. These use adjustable arms as well as clips and straps for a snug fit on most mirrors that are 4-1/2" - 11-1/2" tall.

I have attached some review videos that you can reference as well.
