Are the chrome upper mirror sections on 2013 KR

Are the upper chrome mirror sections on the 2013 King Ranch available separately? Can they be attached to standard mirrors?

They are not real chrome simply plastic "chrome". Tap on one and you will see.

I'm sure they are available as a part but it doesn't appear to be easy to find. I found the standard black ones and also the primed for the limited but nothing about the king ranch.

yes, I've seen the aftermarket full covers, was considering the original Ford upper chrome pieces like the KRs. Thanks

I don't think that 3M tape would last too long on that mirror, you start head cycling, throwing in impacts and water intrusion and I would be shocked if they lasted 3 years.

If the mirror is clean before sticking on the cover, it should outlast the truck.
3M tape is good stuff
The window vent visors were still on my last explorer when I sold it... I owned it 11 years.

Thank you Matt. I looked and looked on that site but couldn't find them. I wonder what the R&R process is and whether it can be done on the car. Almost looks like it's retained by a single bolt accessible via the bottom mirror light

Johnkn, are you saying you still couldn't find them even after the link I sent or when you looked before ???

Send me a PM with your email and I will send you the directions for removing the mirror caps.

The mirror glass has to be removed first, then you will see the 4 retaining tabs that need to be released. No bolts.
