WOW, Wayy Back thread machine is up and running.

For the record, I STILL Love these mirrors.
They truly are one of those things one buys, promptly forgets about because they use it so much.
It is an integrated, daily part of your Life and so fundemental that it;s taken for granted, until something brings it to you attention, like this thread.

OR HORROR, one gets ripped, for some reason.

For those who have mirror slide?
Probably did not get a good seal, when installed.

Simply remove the mirror. go pick up some double backed sticky foam adhesive .
remove old adhesive from mirror, clean both the backside fo teh mirror and the face of the mirror where it will go, with paint thinner os some such, then re-apply.
Mine had not moved since I put it on, years ago.

Kind of like door molding , rtunning lengthwise down a door side. dsame foam adheive and they stay for decades.

As I have posted earlier in this revived thread I have had a set a few years ! Held up well :) Did have a little slide effect drivers side !
As usual WADE Customer service came to the rescue :)
I E mailed Wade and got a fast reply ! He sent me a new set of mirror sticky pad's for the outrageously high cost of 0$ and FREE shipping lol Wade is GREAT to deal with and the mirrors are not the cheap plastic type with distortion ! Very good sight picture ! My Next truck will also get WADE Star mirrors :)
Hint on placement ,
Clean mirror very well ! Wipe with rubbing alcohol to be sure any grease or oil is gone !
Try several locations to find what spot is good for you ! Either have someone hold them in different spots while you look before you remove the pad covering !
or put tape on the back of the mirror and stick them on then do a test look ! Move till you find the spot!
Thank you WADE for a great mirror and taking care of your customers

I have a 2014 Big Horn 6.7L and one of the two gripes I have about the truck is the small mirrors.

Not happy with any other solution, I decided to make a custom fit Blind Spot Mirror...and I love it.

Question: Is there a market for this or am I the only one who would enjoy a custom fit blind spot mirror?
