I will be putting one of these mirror models on my 2004 F350. Thanks for any help.

I believe the convex on both is very similar, if not the same. I prefer the 08+ on my 2011 over the 17+ on my 06. Just my preference

Well, both mirrors look good on the earlier trucks. The clipped corner on the '17 gives the impression of style over usability although I'm not sure if the mirror itself is actually clipped. Life's too short to add mirror decisions...I think I'll stay with the '08. Hopefully there is little vibration or glass distortion...thanks for the input.

I have not towed or driven with the 17+ mirrors (although that may change) so I really can't comment on them, I can say the trail ridge mirrors are worth buying and the 08 style are a vast improvement.
