I bought my extendable mirrors for my F-150 on ebay. they were after market and fit fine.

I would check there and Amazon for the mirrors you are looking for.


F150 and Expedition mirrors are different and not interchangeable

i personally have spent many many hours looking on line for mirrors for my 2017 expedition.

only ones i can find are the strap on ones,or ones that attach to the window channel and rest on the door skin.(not what i am willing to put on my nice new truck)

Expedition has been a different body/door/mirror design from F-150 since 2007. There are very limited custom fit designs. I have the Grand Aero 3 which are a little better than the CIPA I used on my F-150 and K-Source snap on models I used on the same Suburban. They should work with most OEM mirrors that have 1/4" gap between mirror glass and housing.

This. Really happy with our Aero 3 mirrors. I would think the Grand Aero mirrors would be just as good.

I used the grand aero on my Frontier in it's early days of towing, before I put twin arm tow mirrors on it. The GA worked fine.

Those of you that have this mirror will notice that I have cut the rod shorter. Set up this way I could easily see past my 7' wide funfinder, and also keep an eye on the trailer tires.

Your link brought up the Milenco Aero 3 for me, not the Grand Aero 3 which is the same concept but a different style.

Check discount body parts. Com I’ve bought a set for 2 different trucks, and sent a few friends there. They are not the same quality as OEM but for around $90 each for heated/power they are much cheaper.

If you are interested in mirrors that have no vibrations in them,you might do good checking out the McKesh mirrors. Amazon.com has new sets for $153.95 with free shipping. I purchased a set from Hensley in 01, and had them mounted a '99 Explorer, a '05 and '09 F150. They hook into the window channel and over the bottom of the door. Everything that touches the door paint has a 1/4" rubber pad adhered to it. On the three vehicles we had the mirrors mounted and removed a numerous times each year without leaving a mark of any kind. To insure the vehicle receives
no damage is to insure tie pads and door mounting areas are clean each time prior to mounting.

We only sold ours in 2011 as we purchased a 2011 F250 with the electric extendable and folding mirrors, and we just didn't need them anymore.

With the price that I have stated, there are two 4" convex spot mirrors that greatly assist your observations of surrounding traffic.

Thanks for all the responses to my query about trailer mirrors for my new 2017 Expedition. Mirrors for other fords, F-150, 250 etc. do not fit. Not being able to find any replacement mirrors I ended up purchasing clamp-ons, Dometic DM-2912 Milenco Grand Aero 3 for $100 on Amazon. There is just enough room to clamp on to the upper lip of the standard Expedition mirrors. ( I do not have the optional mirrors with turn signals, but I don't think that matters because the signal is on the bottom of the mirrors and the basic shell I believe is the same.) They are easy to attach and remove, seem secure and will fold in with the standard mirrors. They vibrate a little but are much better than my old cheap strap-ons. Shame on Ford for not providing a better alternative but until they do I will go with these. Safe travels!
