Re: What side mirrors to use?

I bought the west coast jr mirrors. I don't like them sticking that far out though

I like the west coast jr. also. I bought the cheap ones on amazon for Larousse 20 each. There are a lot of complaints about the glass falling out but that is an easy fix with some caulk. I disassembled mine and sandblasted then powder coated them black satin.

My bad. Stupid spellcheck😂. It should have read “around”. I just looked up my order and they are FIT H3541. I paid $24 each but it looks like they are now $32. If you look at the reviews you will see most complaints are about the glass falling out because all that holds them in is a gasket. Its easy to pull the gasket and put some caulk on the backside of the glass and then stick it back in. Hope that helps.

Re: What side mirrors to use?

I'm thinking a bullet style mirror may compliment the look of my grill and wheels.

Re: What side mirrors to use?

This is something I have been banging my head against a wall trying to decide on. I like the look of the larger round ones mounted to stock arm (the type with offset mounting bolt like shown in this thread) but I plan to use my truck to tow and want to be on safe side with a larger mirror.

Truck came with west coast style on it and I'm not a big fan of the look but they are certainly functional. Anyone ever use a type of extendable mirror? maybe one that isnt as large as west coast but slides straight out for "tow mode". I had thought about using a universal mirror meant for a box truck but they look pretty bulky and seem like they would be out of place with the shape of our trucks.

Re: What side mirrors to use?

My truck had west coast mirrors on it. The left one kept folding in on the freeway and eventually rusted through at the bottom. I have this style mirror on my truck now. The right one will need a close up mirror added to it. The vibrate a lot also but you can at least see what is behind you.
