Thanks for your help on the side mirrors, i had seen a rear camera somewhere in this forum but I can't seem to find it again. Thanks again.

What about just a standard rear view mirror? Will the Ranger one work, especially with the deluxe cab?

I stuck a normal car review mirror on my bobcat 3650 windshield for $13 from Walmart. It fell off after 2 years, but I'm going to get some mirror glue and put it back on.
It worked great. I would like some side mirrors also.

Do those mirrors work with the full cab doors? I saw a review on Amazon that said the doors hit the mirrors. Just want to check before I buy them.

An alternative would be the bobcat product, part #7204856.
Yeah, that's what I've been looking at. I think those are more along the lines of what I am looking for. Now to find the best price.

Think I'll try a rear view camera...

I just ordered a cheap usb camera off Ebay and I have an old android tablet that the battery blew up on (didn't explode, but puffed up and popped the back off the tablet!) So I ordered a 12v to 3.7v transformer on Ebay to power the tablet. If all that works, I'll mount the tablet in the roof and have it power up when I start the Brutus. There are a bunch of apps out there that should work, so we'll see what happens. I'll keep you posted!

P.S. I also ordered some real mirrors just in case!

Usb camera a bust

Well, the usb camera was a bust. I couldn't get it to work with the tablet. I did get some mirrors on, as well as a new roof and mounted a stereo in the roof. I posted pictures in the gallery if you are curious.

If you want an another inexpensive inside mirror option, here's a $12 option at Autozone which I put on today:
http://www.autozone.com/safety-and-...ilot-automotive-blind-spot-mirror/257122_0_0/
If you just want to keep an eye on what's going on behind you. The picture does not show the mount which has a
thin adhesive strip which fits nicely on the inside of the roll bar. At 4" by 2.5", it looks right sized for the Bobcat.
I wouldn't use it if you need to do a lot of precise backing up using mirrors. I believe it's also at Pep Boys for a
little more. Just another option.

Anyone find a Bobcat dealer or seller online that doesn't charge MSRP for parts/accessories and will ship? I am not happy with my local Bobcat dealer, and unfortunately they do the whole state. Looking to get the side mirrors and maybe the turn signal kit.

For the best mirrors, buy the Bobcat after market mirror set -- I have them they are great.

For cameras, best to get is CabCam -- have them on my skid steers, they are amazing.

Mirrors are bobcat part #7204856

Can't install on a fully enclosed cab.
I believe the bobcat part #7204856 works with the hard cab enclosure? Jorts says he has them on his HD PTO model with the full cab.

Here's a close-up from the Bobcat website:



I'm going to call my Bobcat dealer later today and get a price quote.

Mirrors are bobcat part #7204856 for $400

Yeah, that's what I've been looking at. I think those are more along the lines of what I am looking for. Now to find the best price.
Here's the prices I've received on the Bobcat road-legal parts:

Code:
$395 Side Mirror Kit #7204856
$440 Turn Signal Kit #7213757
 $93  Rearview Mirror #7194785
Kolpin aftermarket mirrors run around $40 for the pair, racing mirrors run $100-$250 for a pair, but are designed to mount around a roll bar, so aren't compatible with a full cab.

I just got a quote from my dealer on the side mirror kit for $232.10. I jumped on it as I expected something much more like what you mentioned.
