A common upgrade is installing a set of 2006+ mirrors. I plan on doing it to my Ranger sometime in the future.

Yes, 3 bolts. They fit under that black triangle on the door.
You have to remove the door panel, undo those three bolts and if power adjusted undo the electronic connection. Install is the same as reverse. I got a replacement on rockauto.com for $30.

in any truck older than 2006 you'll need a dremel with a cutoff wheel and some external torx sockets to remove the bolts and modify the mounting pegs.

its simple, but not completely bolt-on
