^Except those are 98-05 mirrors...



YES. I have them on my truck('01). You will need to drill out all 3 mirror mounting holes on your door so the pushed out portion of the 06+ mirrors will fit. Then, you'll need to use washers to act as spacers, then run your nuts and tighten to secure the mirror.

It's either that or taking a dremel tool to your brand new mirrors to accomplish the same effect.

Here's some pics...

















I've had 'em on my truck since about July '08 and abolutely love them. Size wise, they are a little wider than the style GreyGhost has, but alot talller than the 98-05's. Took a little getting used to, but visibility is GREATLY improved over my stock mirrors.

***Pics added to my first reply in the thread***


I got mine from the Ford dealer at a really good rate(2 for the price of one now adays), but that was a hook up. If it were me, I'd go OEM only. FoMoCo mirrors only. Reason is that aftermarket no-namer's mirror glass like to bounce. I experience this with my last set of mirrors and other people confirm this. While others also disprove this by their aftermarkets not doing that. Do...IDK....I prefer OEM stuff for peace of mind instead of having no idea before you drop the cash and install.

Your lucky to get 1 used one for $60 at a yard... just sayin'....

look 'em up on www.car-part.com. Most yards that are in with them are closed yards that have newer vehicles....exactly what your after. Pick-n-pull/u-pull-it's don't have anything this new...give it 5 more years. lol!

FX4wannabe and i have had this discussion before on TRS.

I am one of the ones who has had no problems with the aftermarket mirrors. I have the Kool-Vue mirrors and haven't had any problems with loose glass.
Of course, he's right to say that you can't go wrong with the OEM Ford mirrors.

And we both agree that the '06+ mirrors are much better than the previous style. And not just for the look, but for the viewing area.

As mentioned, a little fab work is required, but nothing difficult. I just drilled out the holes directly in the door to a larger diameter. Also chopped the wires to use the harness from the old mirrors.
