Re: How To Install: SS Mirrors

that gap is caused by the pin that is supposed to line up the mirror but doesnt fit in the whole.. all you have to do is break off that plastic pin and it will sit flush...

oh and codered, plz tell me you rode around with one stock mirror and one ss mirror :lmao:

Re: How-To: Install SS Mirrors

Sorry guy's I have a crew cab and backing is hard enough with the mirrors we have, but I know a lot of you have taken the back seats out. I can see it on a single cab though looks good.

Re: How-To: Install SS Mirrors

Nice write up but I'm not a huge fan of em wish they had something just a little bigger. I like to drive fast and a small mirror would make it rough, weaving through traffic...

I'm glad I decided to look on here before asking questions. I never reused the gasket from the OEM mirrors on my SS ones. My question was going to be, how do I stop the rush of air from coming in while I drive lol, or how are ya'll insulating them.

I just picked up a set of these but they are manual. I'm debating on weather or not i should use them or sell them.
