Super duty mirrors on 92-96 body style?

Kinda want to rig some of the telescoping super duty towing mirrors into the channel for the vent windows, but im not sure if it would work, I've seen it done with dodge tow mirrors but i hate those ugly things, anybody ever seen or rigged super duty mirrors on one?

Try a search of this forum. I saw one awhile back where a guy built a piece in place of the wing window to mount super duty mirrors. It may be a good option if you want those mirrors

I bet it would look terrible, even if its useful. I'd just get the stainless swing away style that was factory. It was more common on 80-91 trucks.

it does.sadly many have done this (google image search: super duty mirrors on obs.) the reason it looks so out of place is because it's a modern mirror set on a classic body style truck (pre-99) and it just doesn't work (despite what the owner thinks lol.)

When you search and find a posting with pictures, check out the HUGE blind spot the swap presents you with.. You could loose a good size car behind the bracket!!! As a test, put a piece of dark paper over the entire vent window on both sides, and look at how much view disappears..

Some may not care to loose that much view, but I do,, I want to see who the hell I'm fixin' to run over!!!

I just saw the pictures. That is just hideous looking, not to even mention the blind spot it creates. Two thumbs down for this modification. I wouldn't screw up my door for this.

Yep, looked at some, and you guys are right. FUGLY. Might look good on a 4 dr long bed and helpful for a dually, but i don't like the blind spot they create either. Here in Michigan frost does that on the vent windows and i scrape them in the morning too!
