I do. It gets rid of that blind spot on the passenger side. Especially with the high back seats in my truck...

I don't mess with it. But I had it out for a while and loved not having it. If I didn't have the GF I would have no passenger seat.

If you drive a 2004 or 2005 u would understand

They did a high back rest on both seats. When you try to look out your passenger side mirror, and are not sure if there is some one in your 'blind spot.' you glance over your shoulder, but all you see is passenger head rest

Not the best picture, but you get the idea blocks the half window on the side

I leave mine at the same angle as mine so I can lean my arm on it and talk on the phone with having to hold my arm up for a long time, lol.

I don't move mine... funny thing about my cab... on the other side of the seat is the column where the two doors meet so it doesn't really block anything...

Nope, don't look out of it anyway.

Go buy some little convex stick on mirrors or something.

The biggest blind spot is in 90% of drivers' seats.
