Early 99 tow mirrors non adjustable??

Picked up a 99 7.3 and when i was checking out the truck i noticed the mirrors where extended out so i tried to push them in. They wouldnt budge. Ive been reading they are in a fixed position. Is this true

the only option is to buy new ones. On my truck one of the mirrors was replaced by the previous owner and its a adjustable one, so I have one in and one out all the time, its slowly starting to bug me, might be time for some 2008+ style mirrors

If there was a performance increase it wasn't a lot, i did it at the same time as the 4" exhaust so together i noticed a little. You can hear the turbo more inside the cab, especially when you let off after a higher boost acceleration. I just took the factory early 99 boot and turned it around backwards the filter just fits "snug" at an angle between the battery and the fuse box. I also did the ccv mod at the same time which eliminated the CCV bracket which helped with moving the filter around so it fit. I mostly did it because I bought a pre filter mesh cover for the filter that I can just take off and wash, pretty much never have to change the filter. That and finding a early 99 air filter can be a pain, most auto parts stores mistake it for the 99.5 and up model, or dont have the right one.
