Mirrors

I was thinking of changing out the black mickey mouse mirrors for some chrome towing mirrors. Either the single wing, or the tripods style. Any comments?? The single wing seem a little wimpy, I've seen some tripods on duallys and ambulances.

Old mirrors


new mirrors


I got em from craigslist 30 bucks
It was an easy mod takes two people though to get nuts on back side of bolts and just use some rtv or rubber grommet type washers to seal it up.
It is like night and day when backin a trailer up now I love em.

I personally like the smaller power mirrors more. Those tripod mirrors don't have a break away feature do they?... They're just going to raise hell with your door.

Well the mirror head folds back if needed in a drive through or something but i dont think I have to worry about buggering up my door.
If I get into that mess I probably have bigger problems than if my mirrors fold out of the way.

If you install new tripod style mirrors, use Stainless bolts to hold the elbow to the tripod. I found out why the hard way. After a few years the steel bolt rusted enough to break when I shut my door.
