Does anyone know of a place I can get some heated mirrors that would physically mount up? (wiring isn't an issue for me) I hate scraping ice on cold mornings. I guess I've been spoiled by my Acura RLX. :giggle:

They have a fairly unique mounting... I'm not aware of anything that will bolt up. Not sure they were ever "optional" on any generation Ranger... with exception of 2019's.

I suggest building a bigger garage... heated garage at that.

I would check for a Aviator or Mountaineer with heated mirrors and see what it would take to graph those to a Ranger. Be sure to take pics and post a thread on it and what you did to make it work.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Just heat the mirrors you already have.

I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
That seems like it has some potential.

If you do this, it might benefit others if you did a "how to add heat to stock mirrors". Luckily i live in FL and should never need this mod.
If I can wing it, I’ll definitely do a write up!
