    I have an 85 blazer with the aluminum mirrors. I have seen a few 91 blazers with the black plastic mirrors. Will those mirrors fit on my 85? Anyone know where I can get them?

    I know a few guys run F-150 mirrors. They are plastic with just two bolts....dont know if that is what your talking about.

    The mirrors I am talking about actually came factory on a few 91 blazers. They are black plastic mirrors. They are the same mirrors that are on the tahoes I believe.

    I don't think they will work- only because you have vent windows correct? The newer style windows would mount right where the vent window is... the new style flips towards the door....You'd have to mount them lower- might look funny?

    the ones you are talking about are the power mirror options.
    they look funny with the window rolled down cause the mount for them protruds(sp?) into the window area. but they will fit.

    I am just wanting some better looking mirrors. I hate how mine are the ugly aluminum. I like the looks of the blazers with the plastic mirrors.

    No offense, but you prefer plastic on a truck over the factory stainless steel? (yes, they are SS, not AL) At least they breakaway, not break off lol.

    i was gonna put those on my truck, but they have hella more bracing inside the door. it's not a direct swap. if you can find a donor truck in the junkyard, you could spend some time pulling all the parts you need, but when i priced them at the chevy dealership, they were waaay too much.
    they do look cool, though.
