Re: I Wish This Part Existed

I would love to mount a 30MM Chain Gun with Depleted Uranium Ammo with laser tracking on the hod of my truck so I can vaporizer the idiot who cut in front of me on the freeway

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

I wish someone made half-height external mirrors to replace the standard ones, which seriously get in the way of photography, game viewing, etc. (And no need to have running-lights in the mirrors as these are not supplied where I live)

Take the mirrors off?
Angle the vehicle so you can see?
Get out of the vehicle?

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

We regularly angle the mirrors forward to present the narrowest cross-section to aid visibility. Replacing them with smaller mirrors would just be more sensible (and safer).

Each to their own. I've never had a problem with them TBH.

AGREE. I love the mirrors. I actually wish they were wider, like the Tundra tow, or the 200LC Australian tow ones.

I certainly don't want a smaller mirror

Reducing your field of visibility in the mirror is not safer.

I would like to see a mirror about the same height but 1/2" wider.

You could go this route:

Or I've seen them mounted to the front bumper, like an ARB, like the Aussies do.

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Somebody needs to figure out if flick start can easily be added using OEM parts. My parent's Sequoia and brother's 4runner has it.

I don't know if it involves programming in the ECU or if a simple ignition switch/lock cylinder?
