    I bought all the meso customs delete chrome kits. Super easy to do, I’m not a handy man myself but was able to do it all myself took about an hour to do, the hardest part was the vent rings, having to break the glue, and push it out was a little complicated, but not too much. Good luck!

    My kit didn’t have the brass set screw; only mention of a set screw was a self tapping one but there is no hole where the directions said there would be one. I checked, and rechecked, had my wife look after reading the directions and watching their install video.

    great advice on the gasket material! I did not think of that. Thank you.

    We all know if the other driver was paying attention this most likely would not have happened. But it does look to me like you are technically at fault here. They had the right of way and you backed into their path. The parking spot next to you was vacant, nothing was blocking your view. All you had to do was turn your head and check for moving vehicles before backing out.

    Hmmmm, debatable. I can see both sides.

    Man, that rear cross traffic alert system would have been ideal in this situation

    Just a quick tip on ground connection so you don’t have to use the self tapping screw like the instruction said. Just need to replace the ring connector to a bigger diameter…

    I did look and didn’t see anything. He came through the back and was going super fast

    Yeah, there's a reason why Texas went no-fault, both insurance companies split the bill for parking lot wrecks. Because technically the lots are on private property / don't have speed limits or rights of way like streets do.

    Yes he was flying low, but... Also, future practice, it's one of the reasons why I'm in the habit of backing into parking spots.



    PS, you need to rename your truck smashed olive. :boink:

    Finally swapped the BSM LED indicators on my SpotterMirrors (older version) with the original OEM LEDs per @RyanDCLB‘s write up below. I’ve had this one on my list for some time, but recently added 35% tint to my front windows making this almost a necessity. (Note: According to posts in below thread, SpotterMirror has upgraded their LED indicator lights and they are now equal to or brighter than the original OEM).

    Correct about the private property and I usually do back in but not always. Lesson learned. Definitely not naming it the smashed olive. May sell it after it’s all fixed tbd. My heart hurts knowing it was smashed

    That’s interesting… I wonder if Expedition Outfitters changed up the hardware and install process. Sorry to hear that the kit didn’t come with the insert, it’s definitely a nice touch. Maybe call them and see what the deal is.
