Heated mirrors?

I searched but couldn't find a thread- has anyone successfully installed heated extendable tow mirrors to their Econoline? Seem to recall someone adapting F-series truck mirrors but I can't recall who. I searched EBay looking for a bolt on but no joy. Do these exist?

Thanks I did see that in my search but MG said it was a real pain in the butt getting those mirrors modified including using a 3D printer which I don't have. Guess I'm just hoping Ford made these from the factory for a loaded Econoline.

'06-'07 super duty trucks had heated turn signal mirrors that share the same extended arms as the van tow mirrors. Parts can be converter over fairly easily.

The mounting bases between the trucks and vans are way different. You'll need a set of van tow mirrors and a set of the truck mirrors to make one set of heated, turn signal mirrors for a van.

The '08-'16 mirrors are a much different story.

Thanks MG that sounds like the easiest way to go about it.
