Mirrors

HELP, I see pics of trucks around OBS with west coast style mirrors and they have extenders on them. WHERE CAN I GET THEM??!!??!! I was pulling my 24ft trailer today witha 03 dmax on it and cant hardly see anything behind me. There are alot of OBS trucks towing out there, if i cant find some im going to go to a machine shop and try to get them to make me some out of stainless and aluminum. If interested let me know.

Do you have and pictures? And are they adjustable, the ones i have seen have a clamp type deal on them so you can move them in and out by loosing and tightening the clamp

I have the clamp on mirror extender kit that i think
you are talking about except one broke off and i can't
find a replacement anywhere. I have a side business
making plastic displays, i could fabricate a clamp on
mount very similar to use with aluminum flat bar.....

I have been searching all morning for a nice looking
mirror for towing that isn't HUGE or something off a bus.

Then...while cleaning the truck...i saw the make of the
extender that i have it's called extend-a-mirror, check it out

Extend-A-Mirror

Good Luck
