Black mirror caps

Hey guys new to the site!

Now for my question: I have a 2008 fx4 that has the chrome package with the chrome tow hooks and chrome mirror caps. I already swaped my buddy his black tow hooks for my chrome ones but I want to get the black mirrir caps. Is that a ford only part? I dont really want to paint them cause im scared the paint will flake off with bugs and stuff. But if anyone has painted them and it didnt flake off let me know. I painted the fender vent inserts black and they have started to flake alittle. Any help would be great!

Thanks

I read on another forum somewhere they said the chrome caps are on with double sided sticky tape. All you have to do is put a screw driver under and peel them off. I cant confirm this being i have the lariat w/ no chrome covers.

I just did this swap. I also had an FX4 with the chrome package and wanted black mirror caps. I ordered mine from ford. I think they had two to choose from, the paint to match ones and chrome. Paint to match is what you want. The chrome caps aren't attached with double sided tape, they are attached to the mirror with clips. If you tilt your mirror all the way down and look at the very top you can see the clips, and get at them with a narrow flat head screwdriver to pop the cap off. Then the new ones just snap into place. I was a little nervous about ruining my mirror, but the old ones came off real easy.

Any chance you have the part number handy for the black mirror caps? My local parts guy is a little slow, would just like to make it easy for him.
Thanks

I can get the part number for you tomorrow, but if you want i have a set done RIGHT i mean RIGHT and i think i might not use them, bc i like the little white strip now that i blacked out the mirror lights. i will mail them for free if its not expensive, if u dont want them ship them back... they honestly look so good i am going to give them back to the dealer anyway if i dont use them because i want them to be used if i dont.

all i ask is a good pic of one of them on, the young guy worked hard on them what can i say
