    Truck side mirrors

    Hi all,
    Been out of it for awhile due loss of job and family stuff, but back now! ( you know, if anyone noticed :tongue)
    Just wondering if anyone has fitted the side mirror similar to picture to their patrol? I have a low mounted reverse camera and plan to fit a higher mount one, don't judge me to hard, I just like the look of these. And yes, I would put lights on them ( closet truckie)🙃

    The only issue I can see is the top mount not having a flat spot to mount to which will make it difficult to move once all tightened up..

    Not sure that style would suit a GU have you seen the Clear View range of mirrors??
    Not cheap @ $800 a pair but look the part IMO

    Yes, I will have to do my homework to see if I can fabricate a suitable mount that won't interfear with the door integrity. I'll also take a picture of my duel gauges for you to compare tonight, Kallen.

    3D - very close to buying a second hand clear view mirror set, but I'll try to see if I fit the truck ones for looks first.

    I'm with TD .... if you want that style of mirror, then the Clearview ones will 1 - fit easily, 2 - look the part and you can get them in chrome if you totally want that look, 3 - they fold back in the bush, 4 - they extend out if you need it.
