Thanks!! Here's the exact ones I bought.

Jeep 97-02 TJ Black Mirror Relocation Bracket Kit | eBay

Under 30 bones shipped. Install in about 20 mins. The only thing that sucks is if you don't keep your door-swing-limiting-webbing (whatever its called) on the tightest loop, your doors can swing out and hit the mirrors and knock them out of whack. Just gotta be a little more careful when getting in and out. The doors will still open almost 90 degrees before hitting them. I keep the doors off if it's not raining though anyhow

I like the "gloss look", but it's hard to get it even with a can of spray.
Yea I'm hoping mine turns out good on the sides im not to worried about the top of it so much. I stopped and looked a a 2012 sahara yesterday it had the color match top it was sharp

Finished wet sanding. Now I'm ready for paint I decided to nix the clear coat and went and bought dupli color perfect match. I used it on my fender when I replaced it and its held up.

Thank you thank you. That is an awesome idea!!! When I get my Safari rack, with the Pelican cases, I will have to get me a couple of those decals myself

Hey I am totally digging those Limb risers! Did you come up with that idea yourself, or is there a kit for that?

Put the seats, bolts, wires, and other assorted parts back into the Jeep after putting in the Monstaliner yesterday.

Only 3 extra screws left when all done!

(I'll have to let Chrysler know they obviously don't need these.)

Well the windshield guard is a product that BCC makes (vendor on here as well). All I had done was weld some little brackets on the top and the rest was parts purchased at home depot. (2 t-brackets used for framing fit perfect between fender and flare and the stock bolts lined up perfect. then about 12ft of plastic coated wire, 4 mini d rings, and two little adjustable eye hook things so I can adjust the tension.) If you want better pics of the limb risers let me know but the windshield guard and light mirror mounts where all Bcc doing.

It's the simple things like this that make the difference between a nice Jeep and a "trail beater". Great mod.

The biggest pain in the ass was getting the mirror arms out of the old brackets. I had to bang them on the workbench to get them loose. I think they're press fit in there.
Yeah I'm using a star. what did you use?

Lol that's what I used, just making sure you didn't have a screwdriver jammed in there or something you don't need those screws or bracket to install the mirror movers, so you can just drill out the one you stripped.
