Default Sun Visor Mirror addition? (NOT REPLACEMENT!)

My girlfriend rides with me all the time and she is always looking in her makeup mirror that she keeps in my glove compartment. im tired of her messing around in the glove compartment in the first place but also i want to surprise her...

i want to add a mirror the passenger side and it would be nice if it looked nice...ive tried to find ways to add mirrors to the sun visor but so far no luck....

if anyone can find a better idea than this: buying a small mirror like 3 by 6 inch mirror and using sticky/velcro tape to stick to the fabric on the inside of the sun visor...


i never use the visor nor do i look at myself in the mirror but if i like it then i may add one for the drivers side too..............

suggestions...comments?

yep, get some fancy explorer ones to swap in there, and then run the power so they light up as well!

diablo..yes

i dont even know how to run the power to lighted visors lol and like i said i have no use for the visor the ONLY way id replace my visors is if i can get one with the visor extender because i sit back just behind the visor when on my side and the sun still gets in my eyes

Walmart sell clip on ones, If you have a darker grey interior I have a stock set from a ranger with a mirror for the passenger side I can give you if you want to just pay shipping

My girl is like yours and I tried adding the aftermarket in my old truck and never worked out even though I tried a few options. I'd suggest replace 4 screws straight forward if you don't wire them.

I recently added Explorer visors to my truck and love them... mirrors, lighted and the extra piece so you can block front and side at the same time. Didn't think that would be useful but I really like it.. surprising how often the sun is at a side angle.

this may be pure ignorance of not reading everything but how does the light wiring work?

I did the exporer visor swap,wife loves it,i could care less,but the wiring is really really simple.But if your not real confident in doing it yourself I pretty sure theres a member close to you that would gladly hook up with you and give you a hand.(that just the way we FRF members roll)
