Truck Cap creates blind spot?

    When I go down and my driveway (steep) and stop to look for oncoming traffic, before I push snow across the street because of the angle I cannot see to my right. Is there any solution to this without taking off my truck cap? Any opinions are appreciated! thanks Lee:help:

    Nope....caps gotta come off or put a camera over there.
    Can also change the way you plow it. Don't go across the street.

    Thanks guys! think I will look into the camera idea, possibly put it on the rear view mirror and angle it towards the blind spot!

    its done with mirrors . my spreader blocks my rearview.
    same deal with a fuel transfer tank pump if your an unsure "neck turner" . i see a lot of guys have the pump on the passengers side creating a blind spot , when there is a pump hole behind the drivers side . just a thought .

    We run all our pumps on the pass side we have no issues with it.

    also pushing snow across the road is illegal in some places.

    I use my mirrors all the time. I never look over my shoulder or out my rear view. I also use my backup camera quite a bit since I got my new truck but, I try not to rely on it.
