Today we are going to show you CIPA custom towing mirror, part number 11801. This is a slip on mirror that is designed to fit 2004 thru 2011 Ford F-150s. There are different styles of mirrors available for different models of F-150s. Make sure to check your mirror with our product page to find out if the CIPA mirror will fit. :21
Inside the box you will find the mirror housing itself along with some small parts. There is a tension knob that we will be using to secure the mirror, a neoprene pad that we are going to use to protect our factory mirror on our pick up truck from the CIPA mirror to keep things from scratching each other. You will also find two little clamps. One is going to be for the 2004 to 2007 body style F150, which we will not be using today. The other one is for the 2008 to 2011 body style F150s. This is what we will be using today. :53
The first thing we are going to do is install the neoprene pad on our clamp. Center it up, you can check the instructions, there is a nice diagram to see where exactly to lay this out. With that done, we are ready to head to the truck and mount the mirror. We will take the CIPA towing mirror and slide it on over our factory mirror. There are even little cut outs on the bottom so your turn signal indicators will still be seen. We will take our wedge clamp, fit it inside this grove until this cut out lines up with our threaded tensioning knob hole. Now that they are lined up, we can start threading in our tensioning knob. Our tension knob is going to push our clamp against the factory mirror, and pull on the CIPA slide over mirror. The tension in between the two is what is going to hold everything in place. There is no need to wrench on the tensioning knob, you will feel it get snug and almost come to a stop and that is good enough. 1:58
The process on the passenger side is almost the same. With the passenger side you will need another part number CIPA mirror, part number 11802. Next we will take the truck out on the road and show you the extra viewing angle of the mirror. That does it for the CIPA custom towing mirror for the 2004-2011 Ford F150, part numbers 11801 for the driver side and part number 11802 for the passenger side.
