Dodge tow mirrors on my OBS?

Was thinking dodge tow mirrors might work on my truck. Want to some how mount them in font of the vent window so it is still usable. I dont like the idea of completely covering them just for mirrors. Also think they would stick out enough to where you would see them through the window. Biggest thing is finding a way to mount them.

Any ideas?

There is a whole thread on different mirrors for our obs trucks and one guy made them work good, but good luck. I will look for that thread too.

this is what the dodge mirrors look like on a obs. this guy has a thread about the conversion and it includes how he mounted the mirrors on one of the pages.

Been done already in several threads. One guy made brackets and was able to keep the vent window but it doesn't quite look right to me. With the mirrors folded in you have that vertical separator (between regular window and vent wing) right in the middle forcing you to fold them out for daily driving like you're towing something... I can see the flat bills already! lol

Good luck though for real, it's definitely doable

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

i wish you were in nj man, i would fab it all up for you and keep the window functional. Im going to do it on my truck, idk how to explain it but you have to like build a small stand off on the door so you can bolt it on and still use the window.

Just make a 3/16 plate and weld it to the door and then bolt your mirror onto that plate.

Just please do not put SD mirrors on an obs, I have seen it and it is ugly.

Yep they are too round. The dodge mirrors on the other hand, as found on the white ccd, in one of the links match the body lines better than the do on the dodge IMHO.

I was thinking of fabing a bracket that matched the inside diamater of the mirror mounting surface. Lay it out common to the door corner of the wing window. Mark, out line the bracket on to the door. cut the door along the marked line. Incert the bracket common to the cut and weld it in to place. grind weld smooth and finish. I saw a body shop program on tv were they replaced rusted body parts so I was thinking of doing the mirror brackets the same way. I'm not sure if or how hard it would be to put the rubber seal back in. Just a thought.
