There are some aftermarket direct replacements on ebay that look just like OEM; if you want heated I believe you'd have to use the actual glass part from an explorer/mountaineer (Bob did that mod I think); and turn signals.. you could get some thunderbolt turn signal mirrors, which will mount to power '02-05 mirrors only; or you can just make your own lights to go on the housing and wire them up, some explorers/mountaineers came with them but their housings won't fit on a ranger..

I put some 2004 mirrors on my truck, since I wanted to use the tbolt turn signal mirrors.. the '06 style mirrors will bolt on as well, i think they are kinda cool looking and come in chrome like you're wanting. I dont know of any kits, but all you'd really need to do is find a low profile LED strip or w/e to mount to the bottom of the mirror, wire them up, and voila. I've seen it done before and turned out pretty good.

Even though they appear outwardly identical, the 02~05 factory glass insert will not mount to a 2001-back factory mirror. The mounting platform is entirely different.

If the mirror housing and platform are undamaged, you can buy heated and signal mirror inserts plus controller from Muth but they are very expensive. www.muthco.com

Again, if the housings and adjuster platform are OK, you may be able to order replacement glass inserts from a Ford dealer. You'd have to check with a dealer to see if they're available separately.

Complete mirror assemblies from the later Rangers should bolt right on and I think that the connectors are the same. Expensive unless you can find a junkyard deal.

EBay has lots of aftermarket knockoffs for sale but I don't know how they compare to the factory parts.

The Hillbank turn signal kit wouldn't help you even if it did fit your 99. It is just the glass inserts, not the complete mirrors.
