Heads up:

Regardless of what the ad says, the Thunderbolt mirror inserts only fit 2001.5~2005 factory power mirrors. I think the changeover build date for the 2001 models was around 2/2001.

The earlier power mirrors (1993~2001.5) have a completely different mount and mechanism that will not accept the Thunderbolt signal mirror glass.

The Thunderbolt signal mirrors cannot be used on manual mirrors from any year Ranger.

Why would they only fit the power mirrors, not saying your wrong, just wondering why because I dont have power mirrors. I wouldnt mind having some, just wondering what I would have to do since I dont have the power mirrors. My mirrors look the same as the factory power mirrors, they just dont have power going to them but I know I could get power to them to run the signal. Is it because of the mirror mount inside the mirror housing? I have never cared much about my mirrors, so I have no idea what the inside looks like.

The manual mirrors have a different adjuster base compared to the electric version, so the T-bolt mirror inserts won't fit.

Those are cool but I've been looking for a mirror that has some convex to it. The mirrors on my dads truck are convexed a little and it's much nicer using them.
