Custom offroad mirrors....where can I find some?
« on: May 06, 2010, 10:25:00 PM »
I recently sort of crushed one of my side view mirrors when I slightly flipped my truck over.   So I'm looking to replace the shoddy plastic Ford mirrors with some nice steel ones.   Anyone have any info for me??

Well I was going to get some steel jeep mirror heads and some steel rods, and just bend/cut/weld my own mirrors.  But the BroncoGraveyard has em for pretty cheap, so I'm just going to replace my missing one with a new OEM for now.  I might still make some cool offroad mirrors in the future.  I might try to come up with something that I can make a ton of, and sell to you desert guys.   What should I have in mind when designing an offroad mirror? 


like uh....shock...dust...vibration....getting caught on trees/shrubs...what else?

I'd get some hot rod mirrors, or some of the cool little "off-road" mirrors. You might find them on one of the forum vendor sites or another online off-road supplier.

If you do end up making something, let's see it. Did you find any decent ones on the BroncoGraveyard or just OEM?
