JPGale 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.

Spirit 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 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

I've already got the switches, relays and wiring. Just need the mirrors to start this project. Want to get it done before winter so I don't have to get out of the truck to fold my mirrors in before driving in the garage.....

TIA!


Check with Super Duty Ford Truck Parts if you are looking for factory parts. Better quality than any aftermarket. Attachment 722033

G8orFord They are good quality for the price. Mirrors are clear, only minor vibration, not much, if any, worse than OEM. I did have to trim a little tab off of the back when I mounted them, but it was nothing major. That said, I don't think it matters anymore as far as Syppo goes. I don't think they have the 17+ style for the 99-07 truck anymore, only the 08+ style. You may get some somewhere else, but my experience won't help you there.

cool, thanks!

how would you rate them for quality? mirror clarity? do they vibrate at any speed? fit and finish?
