Mirrors??

I need to replace the mirrors on my 97 f250. I have the stainless steel with mount in the middle of the door and the top.

I would like to know if anyone has looked into converting to some new mirrors, My passenger side mirror will not stay in place i am not sure if its because the truck shakes a little off the line due to the mudds or from wheeling.

I love the mirrors on the newer trucks that slide out for towing, mine a horriable for towing. What do you use to be able to see your trailer while towing? I have tryed the little mirror that you stick on to the main mirror but still sucks.

Any thoughts? Pictures?

I've looked everywhere to no avail. I have the electric small mirrors, and I have those slip over tow mirrors (at $50 each) they suck but it is all I can find.

I did see a post on converting to the superduty extendable's, but then you have to delete wing window, which I think would look strange. And I like that window.

Is it possible to convert my truck to the electric mirrors? I'd mostly like to have power mirrors for simplicity of adjustment.
