Default 2010 Ranger XL

I cannot see properly in the rear view mirror. I believe it is mounted too high as with it adjusted as high as I can get it I can only see the road behind me for about thirty yards. If I try to adjust it any higher I get the top of the rear window and rear interior roof. It seems it should be mounted down further on the windshield (about 1/2" to 1"). Just how difficult is it to have someone remove the base and lower it? I am tall (6' 2") and possibly these were designed with the "average" guy in mind.

Have you tried just adjusting the arm the mirror is attached to?

Mine was the same way I just had to adjust the arm down all the way. Then adjust the mirror up.

Boy, don't you hate it when that happens????? I hadn't looked at the back of the mirror to see the second adjustment. All is fine now. Thanks STL for assisting the mechanically challenged. Dave

On mine I noticed that its tough using the Drivers side mirrors in traffic . Can't see right next to you as there is a bad blind spot . Have to look over the seat to the rear side window to see cars . Will have to buy one of those little spot mirrors for it like I put on my other truck mirror .

One other thing I did was to buy one of those velcro covers for the bed
