    @wadestar, have you had any issues of the mirrors sliding? We have high heat temps here in tx and mine have both slid about a 1/8 of an inch down, showing some adhesive on the mirror. It gets hot here so I dont blame the mirrors quality. You helped me out when I got an old set from Amazon and replaced them with the new ones, so I am by no means complaining, but they are shifting down and not sure the best route to take. I will post pictures soon.

    BTD07,

    The killer is the humidity. The hot weather hurts too, but the humidity is the element that causes havoc.

    Last October we changed to a different model of 3M adhesive in hopes that it will cure the sliding. Send me a PM with your contact info and I will look up your order.

    Ha. I just had this happen to me last week and was thinking about buying a new set. Im in southern Indiana and the temp and humidity has been miserable the last week or so.

    seems like about every fourth time I am filling up with gas, some other RAM owner will walk over and ask me about those mirrors.
    I tell them all, just some Ram owner, who saw a need and filled it, and how I hope the guy makes a million of it too. They all go No shit or some variant and then say that's worth buying the mirrors all by itself.

    Never knew there were so many guys who'd like to see some guy with an handy idea make out.
    Though, got to admit, beats the hell of out the Pet Rock guy. I can actually use this thing.
