Default Blind Spot Mirror

I'm looking to buy a nice stick on blind spot mirror similar to the ones like the 2011+ trucks. I would like to go with the stick on style but I hate those little round ones at autozone because they look so cheap. I would like something that fits with the side of the mirror a little better.

Not sure if you are open to tow mirrors but they have zero blind spots. Also after I sold my stock mirrors, the tow mirrors only cost me $25. That's about the same price as a good set of bubble mirrors

King, the only ones I have seen are the round ones. Two sizes though. If it helps you any, I have them on a couple of my other vehicles and they work fine.

Those work pretty good. I need a set for my lifted 97 Grand Cherokee, There's a bad blind spot behind my sholder, it's hard to see a car down there somethimes.

You know, someone on here mentioned that the passenger side mirror - unlike the driver's side - had no blind spot mirror built-in, and also unlike many other vehicles Ford makes.

So that led to me buying one of those stick-ons, a nice-looking one. So I put it on, and what do you know, it doesn't do a darn thing in terms of improvement. That's because that mirror has the "objects are closer than they appear" thing, which was actually the same viewing area that was in the little stick-on.

No doubt a towing mirror would be better, but for me, the stock is just fine. Took me putting on that smaller one to see that it doesn't help any.

I would like a set of towing mirrors but don't want to shell out the money for a set of power folds which I need to fit in my tiny garage. I'm just going to try a round one and see if I can live with it.

I have noticed that several models of Ford cars have the blind spot mirrors built in like we do on the drivers side and wondered why it is not that way on our trucks. I have the stick on round mirrors on all my trucks. I hate the look but use them all the time. With a tool box and especially with a camper shell I find them very helpful. When off road I can see my rear tires and is helpful when towing. Makes no sense to me that it isn't a standard item on a truck when they are on so many cars. Has anyone seen a replacement mirror glass with on built in to match the drivers side?
