I also vote for the Mustang style mirrors. They would look bad ass on your truck!

they don't have to be hooked up, just cut the wires off, it will still turn by hand adjustment

my neighbor has a gen 2, I think he told me its a '91. He had bigger chrome mirrors on his. they looked pretty sweet. now he's got some black ones like Clinton linked to, and they look really good on there too.

EDIT: the chrome ones look like this, but it depends on what look you're going for.
(and they are manual too)

I might go that way or the Clinton way, It depends on the base if they sit right on the door.

kid, those, "dumbo ears" mirrors were the most sought after item back from 1983-1992.
then, they made the mirrors smaller which sucked. believe me, those "dumbo mirrors" looks a lot better than the kockroach mirrors" your currently using.

I love those mirrors I had them on my Bronco! I admit they would not look good on a newer vehicle of course but i think they fit that Ranger pretty nice

Ok? That's why I'm trying to go a different direction with the mirrors I have now.

I hate the larger mirrors. They would look ridiculous on my truck when everything is said and done. The smaller mirrors or mustang mirrors will suit me just fine.
