its pretty straight forward.. make a metal template of the base of your mirrors. place them as far to the front as u can and weld her up... bodywork and paint. also don't forget about the holes left by the old mirrors be u paint and finish welding/body work.

I agree with the looking good with stock but I also like the look with tow mirrors on them. Dodge only beats Ford in one category and that's mirror design, therefore if I put Dodge tow mirrors on my truck it will be better then Dodge in every category. Plus everyone knows flipping the mirrors out gains 100hp automatically.

A friend of mine put 08 and newer mirrors on his obs . He completely deleted the wing windows though . I looks great from a distance but he has never finished it so not all that great up close .
