Suggestions to eliminate the gynormous passenger side mirrors.

Need to get rid of the YUGE mirror on the passenger side. That thing sticks out like 4 ft...and is nothing but a branch grabber. I thought about removing it and sectioning the mount to pull it in towards the windshield more. Then I thought somebody out there might have a better solution so I'm throwing it out there.

Here's a picture:

I hace been surfing the web for the same type mirror. I have a 2000 International AmTran and my wife and I don't want those stock mirrors either. Did you locate a vendor?

Mirror sure is a branch-grabber.

How about the hood corner mirror?

E350 tow mirrors? They shouldn't be hard to find. Could likely grab them from a junk yard.

That's not a mirror, that's a joust.

I think that would be a branch grabber too.

Maybe a camera system might be in order...

I'll post my thought again, but this time with a picture:


Tow mirrors can be pulled out and pushed back in. Pull 'em out on the paved road. Push' em in on the back roads. The style in the picture above will also fold in if you hit something with them.

I've got those exact mirrors on my F-350; they mount to the door. If these would mount to any flat surface, I might be able to make it work.

Here is something I found:

I had one of those on a ski-boat when I was a kid, except it came out the side and we didn't call it a mirror, we called it a bare-foot pole!!!! Is that thing legal? Does it need to have a red flag on it because it sticks out so far??
