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.
Click the image to open in full size.
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 like the 00 to 08 f250 towing mirrors

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