The King Ranch trucks come with the smooth painted caps. Have you tried the Ford dealership (Sunrise Ford on here is a good option)? That might be about the only place you'll find the caps.

I was wondering the same thing...

I didn't even know they were caps, I just thought the top was painted. Since they are caps, would they fit over the regular mirrors or would I need a KR mirror?

I think they replace the top part of the standard mirror. I could be wrong though

The standard mirrors have a one piece back cover and can not be converted to the painted or chrome cap. You would need a mirror that has the painted cap or chrome cap already on it like the KR, or some sport packages in 08-10 had the color matched cap. Another option is to have the top part smoothed and painted..

As far as the dealer goes, the painted caps are around $46 a side if I remember correctly
