I don't know why he wants them. Maybe like me he got used to the F150s huge towing mirrors with big blind spot mirrors, everything else is like postage stamp.

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...

Just remembering how many times Iíve smacked my mirrors while out on tight trails. Sure gets your attention when youíre not expecting it. Off roading and huge mirrors is not a good combo.

Iím a bit curious; can that guy in the pic above fly?

I've looked and I can't find any that have more mirror area. I can see functional need for more area - as these are they show either behind me - or tire approach to rock - not both. If not wider at least an inch or two TALLER allowing a second plane of mirror would be cool. When I take doors off I am going to mount a convex center rearview sideways at A-pillar to even be able to glance over and see whats under the rock rails... got the metal stock for brackets sitting on bench now - just waiting for all this orange crap to finish falling from the trees to pop the top!

The trick is to mount them on "soft" points. Like leave the adjustment nut a bit loose so when they DO make contact they get pushed out of way...

^^^ Thatís a good idea, never thought of that. They have hit hard enough a few times from yucca trees to where they have been shoved sideways; startles the heck out of me every time. Going to have to quit playing desert racer I guess.

I'm thinking that I should get a set of truck convex mirrors and hang them on the bottom of each mirror...???

I really love the blind spot mirror built into both my Ford vehicles and think all vehicles should have them. I added these to the top inside of both mirrors. I did not add them to the bottom since I use the mirrors to see my back tires many times when off roading.
