Let me let you in on a secret when it comes to aftermarket tow mirrors: it's exceedingly hard to find quality tow mirrors at a good price. However, after a ton of searching around, we here at Stage 3 now have F150 Tow Mirrors back on the site, all of which come backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty instead some garbage 60-day or 90-day warranty. We have both 2009-2014 F150 Tow Mirrors and 2015-2018 F150 Tow Mirrors available for purchase, all of which are designed for bolt-on fitment onto your tow-ready F150 build. That being said, we do have a few varieties of tow mirror available with different features, so we though we'd do a bit of a breakdown so that you get the correct set of tow mirrors for your F150.
2015-2018 F150 Tow MirrorsThe 2015-2018 F150s could come with a variety of OEM mirror types, and we have tow mirrors that keep just about all of the stock mirror features, depending on what systems and features you have on your truck. The most basic 2015-2018 F150 tow mirrors we have are the 2015-2018 F150 All-Manual Tow mirrors. These base-model mirrors have a manual telescoping and manual mirror adjust. While basic, they still have a much larger viewing area than stock, and their telescoping function means you'll be able to see behind your trailer, fifth wheel, or camper.
The next tier up are our 2015-2018 F150 Heated Tow Mirrors with Puddle Lights and Turn Signals. These mirrors feature an OEM-style heating element for trucks that are equipped with OEM mirror heaters. The mirrors are also fitted with LED puddle lights and LED amber turn signals. The puddle lights and turn signals will work right out of the box if your F150 is equipped with OEM puddle lights and OEM mirror turn signals. However, if your truck is not equipped with either stock puddle lights or mirror turn signals, wiring is included so that you can tap the correct wiring in order to get the mirror lighting up and running. That being said, the heating element does not have wiring included, and that function won't work on any F150 that didn't have OEM heated mirrors. Aside from the wiring if you have lower-optioned truck, these mirrors are a drop-in replacement for stock and bolt right onto your F150.
Last, but certainly not least, we have the 2015-2018 F150 BLIS-Compatible Heated, Puddle Light, and Turn Signal Tow Mirrors. These mirrors feature the same heating element, LED puddle lights, and LED turn signals as the tow mirrors above, but also come with BLIS warning lights in their corners and hook right into your F150's OEM BLIS/blind spot warning system without any custom wiring or modifications. That being said, these mirrors won't add BLIS to your truck, so don't purchase these if your F150 isn't equipped with an OEM BLIS system.
2009-2014 F150 Tow MirrorsFor the older 2009-2014 F150s, we also have several mirror options to fit and function on F150s with different OEM mirror options. Starting out, we have a basic set of 2009-2014 F150 All-Manual Tow Mirrors that has both manual telescoping and manual mirror adjust. While not very feature-rich, they do have a low price, and are perfect for XL and XLT F150s that didn't come with a bunch of mirror features that you want to carry over. This set of mirrors is perfect if you don't want to get too spendy while still getting improved rearward visibility when you're towing and hauling.
The next level of tow mirror is the 2004-2014 F150 Manual Telescope, Power Adjust Tow Mirrors. These mirrors have a standard manual telescoping function, but do feature powered mirror adjust, which makes these mirrors perfect for pretty much any F150 that came with power mirrors, but no other features. That all being said, these mirrors won't add power mirror functionality to an F150 that's not equipped with them from the factory, so only order these mirrors if your F150 came with OEM powered mirrors.
Next up, we have a set of 2004-2014 F150 Manual Telescope, Power Adjust, and Heated Tow Mirrors. While these mirrors still manually telescope, they have power adjustments and mirror heating, which makes them perfect for F150s with OEM heated and powered mirrors, especially in places with cold and snowy climates. However, these mirrors won't add a heated function to your F150 if it's not already equipped, so make sure your F150 is already equipped with power adjusting and heated mirrors before you order.
Regardless of what F150 Tow Mirror you choose, all of them come backed by a limited lifetime warranty, and are built to last them life of your F150. F150 Tow Mirrors:
