hi we are looking for feedback from anyone that has fitted clearview mirrors on a Landcruiser ute or a troopy that had the ute style mirrors previously as for vibration compared to standard mirrors and if they extend out far enough

Hi Kev,

Jan and I have an LC 200 series and have fitted the Clearview mirrors 18 months ago... Vibration DOES NOT ENTER INTO IT!!! They are absolutely brilliant and worth their weight in gold.

We fitted them ourselves in a caravan park in Adelaide (With a little assistance from a fellow "resident" who fitted his the day before). Pretty straight forward actually... allow a little time if you are not that savvy with the DIY idea, or get some assistance.

Their "in/out" extension is brilliant, and they fold back if need be in car parks or in the bush for a little clearance... GO FOR IT is our feeling.

Regards,

Craig & Jan

We had ours fitted about 12 months ago on our workmate wagon....
They are the manual version...no fancy electronics on our tug.

They are brilliant....certainly extend far enough, no vibrations at all.

Ours did develop a rattle...but discovered a minute pebble somehow got stuck behind the mirror, which was easily got rid of once I worked out what the noise was.

Kev,

We have them fitted to our 2011 V8 Ute. We had them fitted to our previous 4wd and once we knew they were available for the Ute we purchased a pair. There is no vibration and you can see clearly down both sides of the van.

Regards
Ross

Hi Ross

any chance of a picture of how they are fixed to the door. Do they use existing holes.

Thanks

Lance

Hi Lance.

They come with a full list of bits and a "mode of assembly" on a DVD... pretty straight forward really. Also a paper version of instructions from memory.

You take off the internal door fittings and go thru the assembly process. I played the DVD on the laptop a few times then set it on a table nearby while I "stop/started" fitting it on the LC 200. If you don't have a laptop, watch it on the TV and run "back and forth" to work thru it all.

They fit on thru all the "on-board" holes, screws, clips and wire plugs, etc.

Happy workings Lance.

Regards,

Craig

Hi Lance,

Are you buying new or second hand... either way, they should have a DVD and provide instructions... the fixing points "take over" the existing points within the door of the current mirrors. Hope that helps.'

Kev,

We have them on our 76 series and before that our 78 and love them. Great to see down the side of the van, no vibration and the glass is not distorted like the factory mirrors.

Hi Kev,
This post is probably a bit late, however. I have had them for 2 years on my 200 series. no vibration great mirrors the only thing to watch out for is screws behind the mirror are not Stainless steel hence you may get rust if you live near the ocean like we do.
