I'm not a big fan of chrome either. Those look way better on that OBS than I thought they would. I still have a really hard time with the idea of mixing manufactures parts. This would definitely be worth doing if you don't mind the whole Chevy parts on a Ford thing.

inot a fan of the chrome but if someone is good at photoshop you could change it and repost. when i talked to the guy he said the view on these pused in is way better then the dodge mirrors when they are folded down. and still plenty of room to extend out for towing

i really like the chevy mirrors better especially since they have the option to telescope as a power accessory. if that could be wired into an obs that would be sweet! dodge mirrors look alright i just dont like how the vent window blocks the passenger side when its folded down that would drive me up a wall... most likely gonna order a set of chevy mirrors here soon and will do a write up on the install just no garuantees on how soon that will be...

sounds good.... i will be watching for it. i dont see why you couldnt wire in the telescoping mirrors, just would have to figure out where to put the switch. you will also have turn signals in thoes mirrors!

It would be cool to use the factory nemo mirror switch to telescope them so you didn't have to put in a seperate switch.
