My Dodge came with heated mirrors as did my last GM, won't be without them now. Most truck equipment parts stores NAPA Traction for example carry elements that stick the back of West Coast truck style mirrors ( you have to take the mirror out of the metal frame and it epoxies to the back of the glass) I can't remember prices, but it couldn't have been to crazy or I would have remembered. I also think they came in a couple of different sizes.

Alan the elements on the Chevy's are in the glass itself. They cost $34.00 each from the dealer.

Just had them both replaced monday morning,,but mine were covered under warranty

I think ford is coming out with that option on the 2003 SD on the west coat mirrors. I bet you can but them from ford in the parts dept. I think they also have the turn signal in them.

AW Direct has heated west coast mirror heads, two styles. One has a built in marker light, the other doesn't. They aren't too expensive. I've used both, the one without the marker light seems to be a better quality unit.

For Fords, you can get heated replacement glass for the Excursion to fit your Super Duty. White=Green, I think you're out of luck though. I don't believe it will fit your series truck. What I had done was fit my truck with the mirrors from the F-650, they bolt on, but require some drilling on the upper door.

I have a 2000 F250 which I have heated trailer tow mirrors from an excursion. There was a write up on this on Ford Diesel.com. It was very easy and beneficial upgrade.

I am surprised more plow trucks do do have an optional "lower windshield defroster" like the Wife's mini van. Coils run up the windshield about 6". They must be switched with the rear defroster. They'd be great on the really cold days.

All I could find was heated "Signal Mirrors" at almost $400 a pair,, too rich for my blood.

John, if you find anything let me know, I want them on my 88 also. I'll keep you posted if I find anything.
