F350 Mirror Extenders

Does anyone know of a good set of extenders for the big tow mirrors, I pulled mine out all the way and still can't see down the side of my trailer.

Im in the same boat with you on this. After lookin at the mirrors on the Dodges I would of figured that FORD would take the hint and put some SERIOUS mirrors in.

I was thinking about it and woundering if I could pull the mirror and build a spacer behind the mounting bracket I think 2" would do it. I pulled the mirror out and set them at 90* but they don't lock there. Any thought?

I think the 05 mirrors might come out an inch or 2 further because the "arms" are straight. But even if they don't, man, you can see SOOO much more with them

Old member, first post.

Hello all. I've been lurking here and other diesel sites and can usually find info that I need without posting. I have a Arctic Fox cab over and dolly tow a old Bronco when hunting and camping. On the flats there isn't any problems but when pulling high passes the trans has heating issues, 240-250. I disabled the stock trans by pass line and run directly through a after market trans cooler (third one) in series with the stock cooler. After reading more on this heating issue I decided to try the torque converter lock up switch which seeme to be a pretty common mod to help with this problem. Tapping into the purple/yellow stripe wire at the trans and grounding it with a in line switch there is no difference at all. When activated it's supposed to kill the engine at idle. I've tried two switches, one lighted and one plain and no difference, the engine just keeps running. There is current flow when activated but no effect on the trans. This is a Ford rebuild with about 40,000 miles on it and has had no issues at all. Just wondering if maybe there are issues with the torque converter? My next step would be to get one of the after market programmers but would really like to keep it simple.
I'm stumped and running out of time. Ideas? Thanks.
