Badass mirrors, but you'd have to make the whole theme of the truck like skulls and shit to make it work. I saw an s10 in an issue of Street Trucks that reminds me of those mirrors, it looked wicked

its just my opinion that motorcycle mirrors belong on motorcycle or old skool minis. i think the newer stuff looks way better with just a slimline style mirror like the street scene's.

who cares...the whole point is to be outside of the box, thats what wins the awrds. but if u run those it has to tie in with the theme, but they are sick

i agree with southbay, if you wanna get mag coverage, and win awards, you gotta do something different, the mirrors, or cool, but i'd also have some type of skull theme if i was gonna use them.

motorcycle mirrors are atleast as popular if not more popular than street scenes, so thats not really thinking outside the box.

like i said, i like them, but not really for a colorado. i think the least chrome on our trucks the better, leave chrome for the wheels and under the hood. but thats my opinion.

and one more thing. i have power mirrors, but i always wonder whats the point. once you position them once you forget the switch is even there. i think its a selling point though.

Sweet.

It's your truck, you have some other's opinions, but in the end all that matters is you're satisfied with it - right?

I have seen a LOT of skull/bone themes. If you are wanting to be different and run with that, you will have to come up with a sick ass design to achieve what you want man. Not saying that skulls can't be good, because obviously, if done right, they can look amazing.

Perhaps a skull molded in where the center console and radio bezel almost meet. Maybe put a touch screen in it's mouth or something.

Anyway, good luck man.

Just my opinion, I wouldn't have done that.

I agree with everything SCHardBody said.

These mirrors belong on a HARDBODY, 1stGen S10, Mazda ect.

I think with the way body lines are on these trucks the Streetscene mirrors would have been a better choice. The vehicles I named above are basically "Square" "Box" shape. Unlike these newer vehicles.

The painted look goes real good with the trucks as well. Again like SCHardBody said leave the bling to the wheels ect.

I would have stuck with the SS Mirrors IMO.
