Aftermarket 08-10 Tow mirrors, anyone using them?

08-10 Ford Pickup Truck Super Duty Power Heated Towing Side Mirrors Pair Set NEW | eBay

Found these on Ebay,

Anyone have them or know someone that does? The price is nice compared to all the other mirrors ive found. I wonder how they would hold up? I assume they are not made of a thick plastic like OEM's... But I don't plan on slamming them into poles either...lol

Just put those on my 04 EX last week. Side by side I can see no difference between these and the OE mirrors. Everything was prewired to plug into my existing harness and worked immediately.

Plan is the key word here

Thats good to hear...I think I may also give them a try! The price is right!

I have these just installed them last weekend and so far they have held up very good they dont vibrate or shake like most aftermarket mirrors do and side by side to the Ford mirrors they look and feel the same also I did a trip with them on from San diego CA to Roseburg OR and back this past weekend and they held up very good

FWIW: The price of the OE Ford mirrors is coming down pretty low. I've been seeing sets of power fold/tele mirrors selling for ~$400 now. I'm sure the aftermarkets are nice, but until I see a set of aftermarket PF/PT, my vote will remain OEM.
