Ford F-150 CIPA Mirrors

Just installed these on my 06 F150. I started the truck up and revved it up a little, didn't see any vibration. Install was quick and easy. Ideally I would like actual tow mirrors but we just bought our first Hybrid and thought this could be a less expensive way around purchasing $200+ new towing mirrors.
Has anyone had luck with these, any issues? Click image for larger version

I used them for the first time last season and love them. Took two, 1 week vacations along with several other weekends and they worked well. Like you, I would prefer factory tow mirrors but these are a good solution.

I also use them and find them to be quite good. Once, when the wedge wasn't in right, one of the mirrors started to come loose. I don't get any vibration from them. As long as they are put on well, they are a great alternative to factory mirrors.

I used these until picking up a set of extending mirrors from a fellow board member. They work just fine.
In fact I still have them and the original mirrors for the truck in my garage. Not really sure why I am keeping them.

Thanks for the feedback guys, most reviews I read we're similar to what's being posted here. That's why I went with them.

I used them last year with no problems. Bought another truck this year, so I am letting them go with the old truck.

Four years of use

Been using the same mirrors for four years, no complaints. I did line the
the inside with the fuzzy part of Velcro where the CIPA sets against the end of the truck mirrors, also where CIPA fits against the front side of the truck

Sort of cushions the whole set up.
