Mirror swap?

I have a 99 dot supercab, wth the tiny mirrors that are manual. Is there a mirror I can swap it with that look nicer, like an explorer one? I tried the sport track, but the mounting bolts are different.

06+ won't "bolt up" you'll need to mod the base FYI.

If you're looking for just the non-flag style round mirrors, I have my stock ones in the boxes my 06+ ones came in you can have for cheap

same as below

yeah the rounded ones like i posted that go unto 2005 (and have in boxes) above bolt right up. the 06+ ones you have to pull out the threaded studs, file down the bases, reinstall the studs and then you can bolt it on. its really easy to do but i was just putting it out there.

Hey..If you are still interested in the 06+ mirrors here is the how to that everyone is talking about..I did it and found the job to be fairly easy. If you find that you don't like the new set up, just slap your old ones back on.

P.S. I bought my mirrors off rockauto.com (That place seemed to be the cheapest for new mirrors)
