Sorry I missed this before.. I'm getting about 10-12mpg avg when towing on the highway at 65-70mph.

Taking a longer trip soon, so I'll follow up with my experience shortly.

Also some new pics of the Mckesh mirrors.. They rock. A little noise on the highway after 55mph, then quiets down around 62-65ish.

Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

These are the Mirrors I have used. They clip into the Bottom of the JGC Mirror (other way up) perfectly and stick out a long ways with no wind noise and very minimal movement.

Super easy to put on just a thunb screw and no marking

Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

I tow a fair bit larger trailer but they are plenty to see all the way down the sides and for backing in touch places.

What engine is in that? Btw - do you have a link to the mirrors?

Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

Thanks for the fast reply. I never would have thought of putting it there. How big of a hole did you have to make at the back of the little cubby to get harness through? Any sensitive stuff (wiring etc.) behind that I should look out for when making hole?
Thanks again.

It was a Summit V8 and the trailer is 7180 Loaded. It was borrowed for a trailering review (the truck, the trailer is mine). I used to tow with my ML320 and I have ordered a diesel.

I will get you some more info..

Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

Mounts more like this on the JGC. I don't have any with mine on but the fit solid and super fast.

Here is a NY dealer but they are everywhere: JR Products

The hole for the wiring is maybe 3/4 inch in diameter maybe? I can't recall. It's large enough for the connector on the brake controller to fit through it. I put it on the left side in the rear (the drivers side) corner. Pull apart the lower dash by the drivers side so you can see where you are drilling, but really there isn't anything right there cable wise.
