    Hey all, just wanted to share something i did with my Tacoma today. Carrying over a fad/mod that the import/compact car enthusiasts do. I also own an acura integra for a project car and have done this to it as well.
    I loved how I could see a lot more to the rear of my integra so I figured I'd put it in the truck too. I can see out of both windows of the rear doors and to both sides of the truck bed.

    And yes that is a Hello Kitty air freshener... It's the girlfriends contribution to making the truck smell like cucumber melon.

    I run an AllView in both my race truck and tow rig. The things are great and don't have the visual choppiness of the split pane mirrors.

    That mirror in your truck is W-I-D-E! Does it block any of your view?

    huge distraction. Why do you need 5 rear view mirrors? I understand field of view but there are better options.

    Never noticed the choppiness but now that you mention it, I might! heh. Doesn't
    block any of my view. It's mounted high enough to not be an obstruction.

    It's not really 5 rear view mirrors to me. It's more of one long one with each angled to provide a large field of view. I've used broadway/allview/300mm wide convex type mirros before. They provide better field of view compared to oem ones but this one has provided the best to me so far.

    That's trippy. Too bad you couldn't get a in view camera on each one.
