    Team Woof, here too! Been using them since my 2011 Wrangler. I even got a set for my GF 22' 4 Runner last x-mas.

    The proper way of adjusting your side mirrors to complement your rear-view mirror is to lean your head on the driver-side glass and adjust so the backend just becomes visible, then lean over the shifter and do the same with the passenger mirror. This creates an integrated view and gives you the widest viewing angle of everything happening around the truck.

    Yeah, I've always kicked out my side mirrors to where I don't even see the body unless a sit at a weird angle and can see a portion of the rear fender

    That's what I do! Theres no need to see your truck in the mirror, but there is a need to see closer to the blind spot.

    It takes a day or two to adjust to the new settings, but once you've tried it "you never go back". Now if only I could convince my wife and kids to do the same. :annoyed:

    Yeah I do that and it's enough to eliminate blind spots. You know you don't have blind spots if you can see cars passing you simultaneously in your rear and side mirrors cars in your sideview mirror and also out of your side window at the same time.

    It's still not nearly as nice as having big enough mirrors to simultaneously eliminate blind spots and see your rear tires on the road like the ones below. I'm just spoiled by full size trucks and vans.

    Also once you lose the rearview mirror, like in an ambulance or with a camper shell with poor visibility, it is very nice to be able to use the sideview to look behind you in your own lane, which doesn't work with sedan sized mirrors like the tacoma if you have them positioned to eliminate blind spots unless you basically lean your head against the window lol.

    I also use this method and couldn’t agree more. I do however bring them in a little when off-roading. It helps when you run into others on tight trails when you have to back up to accommodate squeezing by one another.

    Spotter Mirror is the brand - Tacoma | Side View Replacement Mirrors (spottermirror.com)

    Rav4 has a built in convex at the top left which people reported didn't set you see your tires so I went with these. The convex is adjustable on these too, it's not a on the Rav4.
