I like this setup. Any more pictures or description of it? I like that it uses the original mounting plate. I am concerned how much vibration there will be with the extra weight hanging on it.

I prefer a factory look. I upgraded from the T-Rex mirrors to these. I could not see around my trailer with the small ones.

I'm curious about this one too: but does anybody have any more information on it?

At this point I need to swap out my flag mirrors, so I was thinking about going with 2 point mounts and gooseneck mirror heads.

Well I saw that one when I did my looking never could find any info on it but from said looking it appears to be a custom door mount using a modified chevy mirror. I went with the weld on brackets that let you use the 2006 and older mirrors from chevy. vent windows still work.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably go with the 2 point mounts with gooseneck mirror heads, since people seem to like that setup, but I haven't been able to find any OEM mounts when I called the local junkyards.

If anybody knows where I can source quality 2 point mirror mounts, let me know, thanks.

Re: Best Towing Mirrors For A 1995 F350?

I ended up getting a couple 2 point mirror mounts with Extend-A-Mirror Arms, and 1 gooseneck mirror, and 1 regular mirror from a junkyard a few towns over.

For now, I plan on trying one side with just the gooseneck mirror, and the other side with the regular mirror on the Extend-A-Mirror Arm. Any thoughts on which mirror is better for which side during this test? Once I decide which setup I like better, I may put the same mirrors on each side, or keep things as they are if it's working fine.

Also, I found a video on removing the flag mirrors from a 1995 truck:
but is there a guide, or any tips, advice, etc., on installing the 2 point mounts, especially since you need to drill 2 holes per door for the lower part of the mount? I want to get them installed right the first time without messing anything up. The only advice I've gotten so far is to use jack nuts for the lower part of the mount.

Thanks

Anti-sieze is ur friend. I would also washer the mounts if U can find a washer the right size I would put it on the riv-nut before locking it down to distrubute the load out more but that's just my opinion on the matter.
