Why do Dodge guys who pop up their mirrors get under you Ford guys skin? I personally leave mine down unless I'm towing.

By the way, I like the new Ford trucks and new engine. Good to see Ford got their act together after the 6.0 and 6.4 nightmares. I lived the 6.4 nightmare. I can tell you that the Dodge Cummins is a completely different type of truck and tower.

Enjoy your trucks!

It's a hypocritical jealousy thing I think. Most of the guys here (especially my fellow OBS crew) hate on the Dodge mirrors every chance they get...but then spend hours and hours trying to figure out how to mount the same Dodge mirrors onto their Fords. I guarantee you that if Ford came out with the same style mirror you would see Fords EVERYWHERE with their mirrors flipped up.

...let the hatefest begin

I wouldn't say they "get under my skin", but they do look dumb sticking way out there for no reason. If you are using them yes, flip them up, but not just to drive around. Same with the ford guys, I've seen a few that leave their mirrors extended out. Looks dumb.
