NNBS silverado tow mirrors on NBS silverado
and its done!
but theres good news and bad news...
anyone notice the UNsymmetricalness of the two mirrors here?
heres a better view...
obviously something isnt right, i contacted the company that i bought these from and am hoping they will respond soon, because its is the little things like this that irritate the heck outta me...
but overall, I freaking love these things!!!! I can see so much amazingly better and can now utilize my passenger side to parallel park and see my right rear tire and how close it gets to the curb, I am in love with these things, but obviously i would be 100% satisfied were it not for this flaw...
I do plan on doing the tow mirror leveling mod to just for aesthetics purposes and I will post whenever I do it.

I can't tell if it's the angle of the photos or the mirrors that causes it to look like this. I'm thinking it's the angle of the photos, because if you look at your photo with OEM mirrors, they look asymmetrical, too.

also, for the new ones its that last picture, from the top view, that really shows you something is different between the two...

I can't tell which is wrong, I think it's the driver's side. But, I'm with @Sierraowner5.3 I think one side is not quite in place.Ray

if i could get an angle finder....
assuming the side of the truck is a straightline forward, I bet the drivers side mirror sits at about 75 degrees, while the passenger side mirror sits at about 45-50 degrees.... if yall get what im saying, i dont really know which one is wrong seeing that it could be either lol

you can adjust the angle the mirrors sit on the truck. not entirely sure thats what you are referring to. the up down angle looks off as well.
wish i could see it in person.
