It does vary by state...has been brought up in forums/threads before and somewhere you can google or something to find all the different state laws. Better to be safe than get a ticket-if you are going without doors (NOT recommended on the highway) get the door hingepin mirror and slap it on.

I varies state to state. I'm gonna direct you here to answer this question. Just scroll down to find your state. Cali is most likely gonna need at least a DS and center mirror. Prolly all three actually.

Now, the mirrors being mounted on the doors is not a problem when you take the doors off. There are many different way to mount side view mirror on the Jeep with out the doors present. Most common is mirror relocation brackets. Easiest is a pair of take off Harley mirrors through the hinge hole, or bicycle mirrors. I have even seen suction cup baby monitor mirrors used adhearded to the inside upper corners of the windshield.
Do a search and be creative.

In VA you are required to have 2 mirrors that can see 200 ft. I have these mirrors that slide onto the door hinge and have a nut on the bottom to tighten them up. They shake like crazy when you're driving but atleast its legal lol.
