Visors / Rain Guards For Outside Mirrors?
I came across some rain guards or visors for the outside mirrors. They are a generic application but seem like they might be a good idea as I'm a bit disappointed by my mirrors in the rain. The mirror glass on these trucks seem to sit flush with the mirror housing and mine are sometimes unusable in the rain as they get completely covered in road spray and things like dirt, pollen, and leaves. All my other vehicles have had the mirrors recessed in a little bit, just enough it seems that my mirrors stayed much cleaner even in bad weather.
Anyone tried these things? They stick out a couple of inches, straight back from the top of the mirror housing.
Here is an example that I found on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLEAR-SIDE-M...25fa51&vxp=mtr

Re: Visors / Rain Guards For Outside Mirrors?
i'd be a bit careful about sticking anything on the mirrors mainly on the driver's side because of the auto dimming feature it can make for a pricey replacement if to much force is put on the mirror glass while installing.
of course i haven't had a problem with road spray or anything that you listed and i live on a dirt/gravel backroad but i agree with you how the mirror sits flush with the housing but i am used to it because the car i had before was like this.

Me laugh but I agree while it may work on the claims it you have a good point on the looks.
