Anyone use blind spot mirrors ?

What blind spot mirrors do people use?

Mirrors, small round blind spot, use them?

What's your preferred choice for blind spot mirrors?

if you wanna waste money there's some fancy retrofit system that looks pretty cool.. but it is 150 per side.. or go to walmart and go to the RV section and get some small 1.5 inch rounds for less than 3 dollars.. the 4runners' oem mirrors have so much real estate that it wouldnt hurt to just slap some on and you'll be thankful that you did.. all it takes is that asshead who's zooming up right up on your rear as youre about to merge lanes to cause a crash..

...really? I have honestly never noticed that. Going to have to double take later.

Either way I like the little domes I have. I can tell at a glance if I have someone right next to me. Or really precisely place my rear tire on/around obstacles.

Not as good as a dome but can still be canted down when off road to do that. Or at least see where the kickout is on my passenger slider.

I hate adjusting my mirrors tho. I like to set and forget.

I sit there going back and fourth like lunatic trying to get it right back to where I had it. Ruins my whole day.
