F150 tow mirrors on a ranger

Has anyone modded a set of tow mirrors to fit on a ranger? I was picking up hay the other day, had a full box and full trailer and it would be nice to get a nice wide set that slide like these do, anyone know of anywhere that might sell some good ones, id rather not pick up the clip ons, they look crappy. I know it would take some good glass work to rig them up but i think they would look kinda cool.

No but I have thought of it too.
There need to be a larger mirror for the Ranger other than an ‘06+ mirror.

Could be interesting, but the overall size is the big problem.
I a manufacturer could just make something in between the F150 setup and the newer Ranger Mirror we would have a good thing.

Theres no way it would work. I have those mirrors on my 150 and they're way to big to fit on the ranger door pillar.

That would look so super goofy took, heck it looks goofy how big they are on my 150.

They would definately look stupid. If you get the clip on ones you can just take them off after towing. You'll only look crappy some of the time rather than always haha.
