    I have an 04 f250 without the tow mirrors and a friend of mine has a 04 f350 with the tow mirrors and he is trading the truck in for an 08 so my question is has anyone swapped these mirrors over and how hard was it? by the way his mirrors are the ones with power defrost and they have the led indicator lights that come on when you turn on the headlights and the turn signal in them

    very easy swap, if you dont have the turn signals you will have to wire them up otherwise the heated/power part will work fine.

    i swaped some '01 tow mirrors onto my '04 excursion it took about 30mins all together.

    As long as your truck is already wired for 'em, it's like a 30 minute job.
    I think your 04 might be wired for them already.

    Pull the door panel off (like a 40 second job), to get to the plugs

    Three 11mm nuts fasten the mirrors to the truck....
    If you get stuck there are LOTS of threads on this all over the web.
