    That's why I was asking. It looks like the mirror is on the wrong side of the support bar.

    They way it's mounted in the picture the support bar is blocking some of the view in the mirror.

    when you move the mirror bracket towards the front of the truck it should hit a spot where it feel like it gets locked in and harder to move, thats where the bracket is supposed to sit.

    Unless it needs adjustment. Move it till it falls into that detent, then you loosen the nut and move it into position. I believe on the passenger side it is 7 inches from the end of the arm to the side of the hood. Then you tighten down the bolt. I would double check that measurement in the manual, but I'm pretty sure that's about right.

    Here is a couple pics of how mine sits. I'm not home so can't take a close up, but these do show the mirrors.

    It is a wacko set up. I actually thought it was wrong, moved it but then opening the door. It hits. Mine is almost useless with the double sincgars mount in the middle, trying to look through the windshield.

    I mounted an mrap wide angle mirror on brush guard. Works great. See my thread for pictures.

    I have to have my seat up to see worth a crap with the AN/VRC-12 I have. Got a link, I'd like to see that setup, I need to do that for the wife and I'd like that as a professional trucker too, she's shorter than more and can't have the seat up, so you can imagine how much she can see. You have so many great threads and ideas Juan.
