92-96 ford towing mirrors

Does anyone know if they sell a slide out mirror for the 92-96 Ford 2 bolt mount mirrors. I want the actual mirror to slide out like the newer Fords. I have the older chrome style with a slide out bracket on it and I would like to change up to a new style but I don't like the aftermarket tow mirrors that slip over the existing mirror. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

No dice. The ones you have are the only ones your going to find besides a slip on towing mirror. Enjoy what you have, they are the best looking ones anyway.

I've seen guys modify the newer dodge flip up mirrors to fit these trucks but you have to eliminate the triangle window. I like my triangle window to much to do that.

Someone makes a slider for the western style mirror, if that is what you are talking about. This style. And here is a link http://www.extendamirror.com/

I also am wanting to grab a set of tow mirrors but im not wanting the ones that bolt on the doors but im not really sure what is out there honestly, I know LMC has some that just slip over the existing mirrors (XLT trim).

What do you mean by xlt trim. 3 mirrors were available no matter what trim level

I have the chrome swing away mirrors on my truck now. The ones with the triangle mount. They already have a plastic slide out adapter on them which works but I have to replace it every year because it cracks and rusts the screws. I would like to get a slide out pair of the smaller plastic two bolt mount type mirrors. I want them to slide out like the newer trucks. I don't want to have to carry a set of mirror extensions around when I need my mirrors wider. I have looked everywhere and can't find any. I thought this would be a good place to look but these mirros might not be available and I definately don't want to lose my vent windows.

Nobody makes a slide out for the "nemo" mirrors. The only thing you can get for them is the slide on extensions that get tightened with a wing nut.

You can use a Dodge mirror though if you dont mind drilling. They go right in the very front corner of the wing window. You can still use your wing.

There is a couple problems with them though.
1. they are a dodge item.
2. they dont slide out, they fold out
3. the passenger one is severely blocked when folded IN

This guy went the "easy route" and just drilled holes

This guy took the harder route and welded a pice of metal in

And page 24 Who is interested in a new mirror option for our OBS trucks? - Page 24 - PowerStrokeNation : Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

I am probably going to go with the weld in bracket design when I convert my truck to a dually. My mirrors will always be "up" since it is a dually
