    Has anyone noticed that the mirror head rides on the plastic frame rather than sitting on the little rubber pad?

    This is mentioned in the previous group buy thread but I think it deserves addition to this thread.
    Your blind spot becomes much bigger if all you do is rely on your normal mirrors to change lanes take a look over your shoulder and use those convex mirrors.

    It is interesting how much larger these mirrors make your truck seem while driving at first. The first time I drove it, I felt like they really hang out there, but you quickly get use to it.

    when driving, it is not good to rely only on your mirrors for checking blindspots...even though people do it anway...its not very safe :rolleyes:

    thanks for the tip ab the mirrors tho :) Have you gotten used to the new larger blindspot?
