Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

^Side note; how does the JGC tow compared to the Yukon? A friend of mine had a Yukon and bought the largest travel trailer he could pull that was still within the towing specifications. Even with...

Re: 2014 JGC - Tow Mirrors?

^Thanks for the tip. I'll have to mess with them a bit in real towing situations to determine which side gives me the best view. I started off with them on the bottom, better/flatter mounting...
