So I just recently bought a 2012 F-150 Platinum and on it it has the power folding mirrors option. Does anyone know if there are any companies that make power folding tow mirrors for these trucks still?
If there aren’t any companies that make them then will the non power folding mirrors work on my truck with the power and heated mirror?

I'm glad you asked. My Son also has a 2013 Platinum and wants tow mirrors with all the functions like his small mirrors. He wants body colored ones tho and I figgered way out of luck there. We surely will get some input from some of the more knowledgeable forum members.

1A Auto makes mirrors that look like the OE mirrors. I am not 100% certain what exactly they have for combos as far as power fold/power extend/heat.

The actual Ford parts to make electric folding tow mirrors, are a down payment on a Super Duty. The Ford caps are removable and therefore, you can change to whatever color you want, though.

I was coming here to recommend the same thing the 1A ones are the next best quality to OEM but at a reasonable price. They have every different combination of power options so you will be able to find a set that match your trucks current features as well.

There are some cheaper eBay options but from what I have read they all shake badly on the highway to the point the mirror is almost useless.

Seems like a few years ago they didn’t any on hand for awhile so I ended up getting the manual folding ones but I don’t need them now 🤷🏼‍♂️

So 1A Auto would be my first choice if I was going to get them but they don’t have any with the power fold. Which I know it’s not a necessity but it’s just a nice convent function. And I still don’t know if the non power fold mirrors would work with the power fold connection which is kinda the real kicker.

So I just looked on Topgear Autosports website and I wasn’t able to find any for my 2012 F150 with the power fold... Do you have a link by chance if you found some?

When I went to these mirrors they said they had them on hand so I ordered the bezel, switch and wiring kit at the same time for the telescoping function. Then after a week they came back and said they don’t have any on hand and don’t know if they will ever make any more. So I bought the manual ones. So if any body needs the kit for the telescoping function let me know

I think the same for all the KR - Plat - Limited, including 12th gen. Not an aftermarket replacement that does/has everything.
