I’ve been looking for a set of towing mirrors for my truck. The only ones I’ve found that fit and are fully functional are Ford mirrors that cost nearly $2K. I wish I would have got the factory installed towing mirrors but I didn’t order my truck and had to go with what the dealer could find for me. I think the 3.0L truck requires towing mirrors that have a temperature sensor? What has anyone found yet? I guess I can live without some of the oem features if the price is right.

Ugh. Wished those worked for me. They’d be cheap. My standard mirrors have the 360 camera, so Ford asks $1,695 EACH for the tow mirrors I need. Highway robbery. It’s just wrong.
I had the standard mirrors and installed the tow mirrors, mine have the 360 camera as well. Ordered from dealer and they cost me about 2400$ for the pair.


You can reach out to fairway ford on eBay, they quoted me 2069$ with the tow mirror switch panel.

This is one of the reasons I have factory-ordered my last two F150s = so I can get exactly what I want and not be forced to accept what a dealer might or might not have ordered.

IF you are forced to go the after-purchase parts route, then I would recommend that you wait for Black Friday time where Ford Parts usually runs a 30% off sale -- attached is a screen shot from last year's e-mail as proof this unicorn does exist. Figure if you are going to pay Ford their ridiculous after-purchase parts price for them, then you should wait and at least buy them marked down 30%, which would be ~$750 off the list price of these mirrors....

I plan to take advantage of this year's Black Friday sale to purchase a block heater and cable.

Jmperlik, I am so thankful for you! I pretty much wrote them off, but if I can find the mirrors for $2100 and get a discount, I’ll buy them for sure. I’m setting a reminder in my phone to start looking in November. Thanks again.

@Smokewagun - I just happened to log into Ford Parts yesterday to see if they had the Block Heater in-stock, and low-and-behold I got this targeted e-mail in my Inbox this morning:
=> It's for 5% off on only certain Product Lines, but it is good thru the end of the year (12/31/19)
=> I would register/create an account now before Black Friday to get on their mailing list for these types of promos

I have used CIPA clip on mirrors for the last 3 vehicles, $94 at etrlr,com
They attach/detach in seconds, give that extra view needed and do not vibrate. Take them off when not towing to save a fraction on mpg and not get in the way in tight parking spaces. Clip back on when pulling the TT. I've got at least 8,000 miles with this set and 0 issues.
