the 04-09 F-150 mirrors are very close

But I'm 99% sure they won't work. I had my 2006 F-150 and my 2008 Expy together for about 2 weeks. I was looking at them, and the shape of the door part is slightly different.

The Expy is more pointy on the leading edge, and the F-150 is more rounded...sucks, because I was seriously thinking about swapping 'em out.


would be really cool if the Expy had the little divot cut out by the mirror like the F-150/Superduties...I miss that

F-150 mirrors WILL NOT work,I had an extra pass side mirror left over from a small accident when I had my F-150 and looked into that idea myself, likeTylus said the mirror edge is nowhere close to the same.
I tried the **** universal fit mirror for all of 5 minutes.
You 'll be better off with McKesh mirrors, I have used them three times so far towing my trailer, much better visibility.

I purchased some Hensley / Mckesh mirrors locally off craigslist and will be trying them out for the first time next week, they were most highly recommned mirrors if you can't get a replacement extention mirror or a **** slip on.
