The optional BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage with available trailer scoping tow mirrors gives you an extra pair of eyes on the road. This system alerts you if it detects a fellow driver in your truck or trailer’s blind spot when you attempt to change lanes.

The mirrors also give you a clearer perspective of your trailer, so you can make wide turns and maneuver your trailer with a greater sense of security.
