Finding used ones in a wrecker are hard to find and I'am not sure about the aftermarket ones.
That should be illegal for a 450 to have the paddle mirrors...

The truck is originally from California so that should explain some things

The mirrors are horrible I have to find some replacements soon.

Truck looks great. Nice job.

I have two sets of those paddle mirrors now, what was Ford thinking on that?

Thanks for the comments. I definitely want to get tow mirrors, but the paint job costed more money than expected, plus I put a spray in bedliner in, so I'm a little low on funds right now, haha. I did oil the frame when the box was off with fluid film, and then oiled the underside of the box too. Hopefully that'll help some!

Dont know if I trust the aftermarket mirrors. I just got aftermarket lights for the truck (as shown) and I'm not 100% happy with them. I'll prob keep them, but I can definitely tell they are not oem.
