    The exterior shape of the door is the same for all square body trucks so, yes, they'll fit. Beware each style of mirror uses different hardware and bolt patterns so you'll have to do some new drilling and also have some old exposed holes to deal with.

    That's right, I will then swap the chrome ones from half doors to regular doors and all good!

    The ones pictured are not chrome. They are polished stainless steel. The factory stainless mirror housings last forever. Aftermarket chrome ones are crap.
