Default Tow mirrors

I know this question has popped up a hand full of times and most say that it wouldn't look good but I'm curious if anyone has pictures and know how on fitting super duty mirrors onto a ranger. Keep in mind my truck is a dually and it's used for show so I don't want to put clip on mirrors. I have seen one picture of it done but can't seem to find it now.

Yea there are only few dually rangers so I'm sure you all have seen it. It's a discontinued kit from jcwhitney and the bed is a flare side with stepside fenders.

I would get 06+ mirrors if I was you. They are bigger but won't look stupid. Any full size towing mirror will just look silly on a small ranger. Hell they look stupid on the f-150's I see that do the swap.

I'm part of a fire department so that's why I have the blue lights.

I don't like the look of the newer ranger mirrors nor the tow mirrors you can get for the rangers. I want to get something that has the two mirrors so i can use the lower one to see my tires when parking. I did stumble on some telescoping tow mirrors for the f150.

look at the mirrors from a 99-02 F259, the pull out tow mirrors are pretty badass, seen them on a ranger a couple times, never saved the picture but they looked damn good, and as long as you don't pull them out, they look fine, and have the double mirrors your talking about

Those are the super duty mirrors I'm talking about. Just looking to see if people have pictures of it don't and the how to on mounting them.

no pictures but the easiest way would be the same way guys put the dodge tow mirrors on older square body fords...weld a plate the shape of the mirror over the old mirror mount on your door, and bolt the new mirror to that plate...it's what I'm going to do when I get my superduty mirrors
