Poor college student here too, but thats why I had 3 jobs last semester .

I found tow mirrors on Rockauto for $105 each I believe that I would go with, that or the ones ready to paint for $130.

Poor college kid here too haha, are those ones for $105 all manual? Like not power/heat or anything, just bare minimum?

Barrett I say go for it. I think your truck looks awesome as is but would look just that much tougher with tow mirrors. plus looking at a truck with tow mirrors from head on makes it look so much bigger and meaner imo

They are plug and play. I went from having no turn signals or anything to having it all when I bought tow mirrors. No extra wiring.

Do it! I got my tow mirrors on today. It is well worth it. Takes some getting used to to drive though.



The emblem fell off when I shut the hood Friday. Saleen grill is coming.

Default Ford Towing Mirrors

I think slip on is the best. The others seem less secure.

Heres an article showing the towing view angles, and your 80% Blind Spot without them.

#1 Size of Load
#2 Type of Mirror on Truck
#3 Best Tower Reviews
#4 Reputable Seller for any return issues.
#5 Spares (how many have you had knocked off in 2016?)
