Hey folks, I just bought an '03 F350 Lariat LE. It HAD a factory visor installed from the factory that has been removed and that particular p/n is obsolete from Ford. Now that being said, I became aware that the same visor was also used on the F250 Platinum in '01 and the F650 up until early 2007, I think. Does anyone have one of these that they might be willing to part with or know anything about the original manufacturer, etc?? I would just forget about the entire thing IF Ford hadn't spot-welded the mounting bracket to the cab....but it's an eyesore, and the only way to make it go away is to either replace the visor (IF I can find one) or begin bodywork that I want to avoid. Anyone??

I have the visor on my 2002 LE and cringe every time I get on the highway (75mph) especially if there's any wind. It feels like it's gonna fly off and hit someone. Hasn't yet..... I've owned mine since new, a tree branch fell on it in Oklahoma in 2003, only damage was visor and windshield. Visor was just under $1400, plus around $500 for the clearance lenses.

Honestly I would find a reputable shop to remove the bracket and do the body work. If/when mine goes that's what I'll do. Personally I like the look and haven't seen another in person.

LE came with rear bucket seats too. It was unique but I was single at the time. Now I'm married with 2 kids, rear buckets are in storage and a bench replaced them.

Sorry I'm not much help, just my opinion.

You said that your visor was removed, are there any holes left from removing it?
