Tow Mirrors with Puddle Lights

I've followed the post on doing a RnR on stock mirrors to the newer bigger tow mirrors. Has anyone done an install or know how to wire in mirrors with puddle lights? And for that matter will these mirrors that are installed on the 150's even bolt up right onto my 350?

F150 mirrors will not bolt on to a F350. But the new style Super Duty mirrors would look great on your truck!

i have mirrors from an 06, they are the same style mirrors as the 02 but with the lights and heat in them. they were easy enough to install, the hardest part was wiring the turnsignals in as the easiest place to tap into is under the steering column and the bundle of wires and limited space made it a chore, but they look great.

Personally I think the "puddle" lights are useless. Have a bud that mounted a small LED below the doors that light up the ground very well when he opens his doors.

Did he put them in the door with orange marker lights? I saw a truck like that and loved it.

I have been thinking about putting some in the step bars. I have seen that the Nissan Altimas have the white led lights at the doors, and was investigating getting the same thing and cutting the underneath of my bars for them.
