Not sure I need any more features on my rig making it wider but love the looks of Tow Mirrors on a truck.

Would prolly work, seeing that the Super Duty and F150 Share alot of the same Cab Design.

Yeah I wish they were available on ordering.
The trucks have a hitch receiver and brake controller, why not tow mirrors as an option???

It won't make the truck any wider than a standard f-150 with tow mirrors because the cabs are the same width.

I checked around on the 150 forums and from what I can see it is a lot more involved to get all the power, cam etc features working. On top of that the parts in Canada are $1000 per side and I'm not sure there isn't more electronics required to get the power telescoping to operate.

Not a big problem because I don't anticipate towing much but....like having a truck ready.!!

I'll probably just get some of these?!?

Would this affect my 1/4 mile times?

That's why our mirrors have the race/fold function on these trucks 😉
