Debating on buying tow mirrors, thoughts?
 
Hey everyone,
I'm thinking about buying some tow mirrors for my F150. Could use some opinions on what y'all think. I don't tow anything, so they are not essential. Do you think they would look good/proportionate? Anyone who has a set could you post up some pictures please? Especially if you have a truck with a similar stance as mine!

Here's my truck:

Any thoughts, comments or pictures would be great!

Thanks,
-Barrett

Some think these trucks look "tougher" with tow mirrors. I'm more into function rather than looks. Besides, if they don't auto fold, then parking lots will be more fun with them.

I think they look kinda goofy on a half ton. My father in law had an 07 with tow mirrors and we nick named the truck "dumbo", after dumbo the elephant with big 'ol ears. Just my opinion.

I love them and am debating on getting them also. I believe for the power/heated ones they are not plug and play, you have to wire something if I remember correctly. If I get them I'm getting manual ones because I dont like wiring

I second this on stock, non lifted trucks. They have started to grow on me for lifted extended or crew cab trucks. Still not a big fan on regular cab trucks.

Do it, get them! Worth ever single cent you spend on them.

When I originally bought the truck, I thought they looked goofy. Before I got the lift.
I did like the functionality for parking and blind spot driving.

Then I got the lift. OMG. I couldn't even thinking of driving my truck without the towing mirrors now. I have to fold them in when I park at work, but that's minor.

When I first put them on they looked kind of big, but now with the lift they look good to me. They do help a ton with the blindspots.http://www.f150forum.com/members/kit...ard-wheels.jpg
