What do other 150 owners do about tow mirrors? Do you find the stock mirrors adequate as was described by one of the respondents here?
I have the trailer mirrors on mine. Right that they don't pull in all the way on the rails. However, mine power fold and I almost always fold them. Folded they are closer to the body than the standard mirrors extended. DW requires them to be folded so she can get at her car. I think she would be unhappy with the standard mirrors in the out position.
I find that the lower wide angle mirror is very helpful. I can see my truck wheels and most of the lane next to me all at once. Just wish this section was also power adjustable (guess I'm getting really lazy...
A criticism - I think the magnification on the upper part of the passenger side mirror is stronger than I like.
Another feature that is really nice is the flood light that is on the sides. It is REALLY bright. A negative on that feature is that they automagically turn off at about 5 MPH. However, there is a mod that allows them to stay on permanently. You need to jumper a wire under the dash. Details on doing this are available on the F150 Forum.
