In brief: I'm hunting a nice rearview mirror. Thought I saw one on here a while back..17" x 3" convex style? Dont need billet.
Also, I have stock Headlights. As much as I hate to say it, the snow will be here before I no it. I'd like to get better lighting for plowing. Should I upgrade the factory lights to HID's? Or leave them alone and add a couple "eagle eyes" or something like that.
As always, all input is much appreciated!
Thx! Rich

Just pick up an eBay HID conversion. I think I paid 30 dollars for mine and they have worked very well, super bright. As far as the mirror, I am looking for an option on that as well.

The HID conversions are really a ton better than stock! You can also do a couple small lights on the bumper, or even better, on the A-pillar.

If you want a cheap convex rear view mirror, look at the circle track suppliers. They have some decent ones that just clamp to the cage with some hose clamps.

I got mine way before they had high/low beams. But I don't really ride around where Id need the low beams.

Most review mirrors sold are garbage. All my buddies who bought them are pissed because they cracked right away. I got an old review mirror out of a car and added a bracket to mount it. It works fine and is still in one piece.

My convex rearview mirror was intended for a bicycle. I think it's a bit large for a bike (about 4" square, and slightly narrower on the bottom), but it's great for the Rhino. My friend Scott (on here as Wanderers) made a clamp-type bracket from light-gauge steel that wraps around the front roll-cage cross-member, and the mast bolts to it. The mirror back is black, the mast is black, and the clamp was painted black. Total cost around $6 and works great.

I second the LED bar option. I am looking at aux lighting myself, and also considered a couple of Rigid D2 Dually lights for the A-pillars, but after a lot of research and thinking about what I ultimately wanted, I believe I'll be buying a 40" Rigid SR-series LED bar mounted above the windshield and below the roof, rather than get a smaller bar "for now".

Thanks for all the input guys! I ended up finding a car rearview mirror in my garage. Think I'll fabricate a bracket and see how that works. Also, like the idea of the HID factory replacment lights might be the ticket!
