Are the CIPA Towing Mirrors for a 2012 Ford F-150 Flat Glass or Convex


Im considering mirror extenders for my 2012 Ford F150 Crew cab. Will your product give me a real view from the passenger side mirror for backing up. Factory mirrors have that distorted view making backing difficult.


Expert Reply:

The glass that is in the CIPA towing mirrors, # CM11800 for both the driver and passengers sides, is not convex like on a typical passenger side mirror. Instead it is flat glass like your driver side factory mirror or the rearview mirror.

Typical OEM passenger side mirrors are convex which is why you see the warning sticker stating objects in mirror are closer than they appear. Flat glass does not distort how the images appear so that is why it looks different.
