i love the look of them on mine, and they'll look even better on your truck cause of the bigger tires and fender flares.

From the prompting of the OP.

I went and took a head on pic of my truck with the tow mirrors NOT extended. And I measured to see how much they stick out.

The stick out, from the truck, about 14.5".

On my way back into the building, I passed several 04-08 F150s with stock non-tow mirrors. SO I measured one. The stock non-tow mirrors hang out about 11".

Can anyone give me a measurement from the base of the mirror to the outside of the mirror? Im trying to figure out how much more the tow mirrors protrude compared to the regular mirrors. I tow a travel trailer in the summer so they would be awesome to have but I also still need to fit in the garage.

Not a big fan of those. They are a little to round. Looks kinda cheap but that's just my opinion. When I get the extra money definitely going with the ones from tusca.

Is tusca a good brand to go with? Everything else I've seen one comes with one! And the one is like 150! Haha I am a poor college student.

They look alright for a cheaper alternative, but I'm still a fan of the newer, rectangular ones
