I think I'm going to stick with an after market f150 tow mirror. Think it might end up being easier and looking better.

It might but don't want to be putting chevy parts onto it. Very picky with what goes onto it and how it's fitted.

Lol might be hard finding the parts to do it unless you make them yourself.

Hate to bump an old thread. But I've had a burning sensation to put on f150 tow mirror....or maybe f250 tow mirrors.

Good point.
I once put a Goldwing fender on a 62 Sportster.

The Harley Gods were not amused.
Now I cant straighten my right arm completely.

Okay some actual stuff. Personally I like tow mirrors as long as they have a purpose. They do look a bit like Dumbo though

From what I have figured out you would have a better chance of putting f150 LD tow mirrors on over the f250 HD mirrors. The f150 is about an inch taller and wider where it mounts to the door and I think sticks out either 3 or 4 inches farther then stock powered mirrors. So it shouldn't look completly goofy when they are on.

I figured the 06 body style f150 toe mirrors would look best. I could always trim them down with a dremel
