    Thats a negative on both. The mirrors are way to small, and the reverse lights are not big enough unless you remove the reverse light bulb.

    The only hideaway option on the back is in the taillights.

    the new fords are not really that good for HAW i would go with LIN3 or tir3 is the new linz6 in the grill and mounted on a tool box or int the back of the truck
    and if you want side protection mount some more faceing to the sides
    example

    I like the idea of the linz6 in the grill, are the ones in the back on the inside of back window?

    I personally love the hideaways in the new front turn signals; they're bright, have plenty of room, and spread light great out to the sides. The rears leave something to be desired though. The 99-07 taillights were great for strobes.

    I couldn't fit my old Whelen strobe tubes in my new '08 F350, but the Whelen Vertex LED's fit in because they're only 7/8" tall, I think. If you want to cram a light in your reverse housing, that's the way to go. But I'm also thinking of putting a couple TIR3's on the back of my toolboxes as well. Hope this helps.

    No, there is a big difference in the light housings. plus his outer lens is clear and mine is the stock transparent ish lens with all the little ribs on the inside.

    Not sure if the guy who posted this thread is still wondering, but the guy who said you can't put vertex's in the back-up housing of the taillight is wrong. I've done it.
