    I like the west coast mirrors for the big rig styling. But they must be removeable.

    yea i got stuck with those small like 3x5 mirrors from chevy, when the guy orderd he ordered the truck with those mirrors, and i REALLY want somthing bigger, i was thinking either the below eyeline style (6x9-stock chevy) or the tripod style (small tripod not ambulance style) i like those too, i dont know how to approach this i just want a bigger mirror that dosnt cost an arm and a leg, i was thinking of going to the junk yard and pickin up some dirt cheap, because they dont have to look that great since i dont care about looks, as long as thier not cracked or spotted.

    lol yea man, id probly buy em too, but god dam man, that take a while to drive up there to NY, and id probly be temted to wheel' with you once i get there and id probl brake somthing, i think im going to get some mirrors tomarow from walmart or farm and fleet tomarow, im either gunna get the chrome 6x9's or the tripod style, but i think the 6x9's would cover up the rust in that area and the existing 2 holes in the door from the gay 3x5 mirrors i have now, and i like the styeling and the size of the 6x9, and the fact that they fold in, well im gunna see what hapeens tomarow, and ill tell ya'll what happens.

    I had some old style "west coast" towing mirrors (the giant rectangular kind) until I ripped them off squeezing down ATV trails. I liked them because you could actually see what was behind you and they could be folded up against the door.

    flat ass farm land you say to wheel', shoot, if we had somplace that was legal to wheel' id jump on it in ahart beat, even if it was a 20'x20' piece of proporty, id do it, around here all we have is a dieing piece of land that gets blocked off worse and worse every time we go there, it sucks real bad because it is fun to go there, my friend says there is a dirt wall that they built, it sucks. but we can still get in there /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif, me and my good friend are like a ying yang, we work very well with each other and point out each others flaws, and works stuff out. any way im probly gunna get the stock style mirrors today if i feel inclinded to do so when we go to the store. thanks everyone for your input.
