Do I Need Replacement Hardware To Mount CIPA Mirrors From 2005 Ford F-150 to 2011 F-150 Truck


I have used your 11801 and 802 tow mirrors on my 2005 F150 since it was new and they work great. I am in the process of purchasing a 2011 F150 and it appears as if my current tow mirrors will fit my new truck but I will need different slide in pieces. Am I correct in my assumption and if so what part numbers should I purchase and where.

I contacted our representative at CIPA about installing the CIPA Mirrors # 11801 and # 1802 from your 2005 F-150 to your 2011 F-150. You are correct, you will need different hardware to install the mirrors on your 2011 F-150.

You will need to select the CIPA Replacement Hardware # CM11804, for 2008-2012 F-150s. Beginning with the 2008 model year, Ford slightly changed the design of the mirrors.

I have linked a video review of the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors # 11802.
