    That's why you stick the little conclave mirror on your mirrors to get rid of those blind spots on the sides.

    For the back, unless you put a camera back there nothing you can do if you have a sander and I believe they only turn on if your backing up.
    Been thinking about getting one of them, they are getting cheaper all the time, They have them on amazon for under a $100.

    You can put all the mirrors you want on the truck and you'll still have some bozo tailgating you

    That's the absolute truth. Sometimes they will be so close the only way you know they are back there is because of the glow from the head lights.

    I always thought some James Bond technology would be great for dealing with tailgaters...... nothing explosive but a smoke screen or flame thrower would do the job.Thumbs Up

    I love it when using a loader plowing a big storm during the day. There's always a car following me like I'm plowing a pass just for him to leave the lot. You don't see him until you look to backup from the pile. Sometimes all i see is their trunk they're so close.

    I always wanted to convert the tube on my ladder rack to dog poo launcher for the tailgaters. :p
