What blind spot are you referring to?

Is it just mounted too low on the windshield? If so, just re-mount it.

you can mount the mirror from just about anything in the wrangler
hit the junkyard and look for a larger, wider mirror

I used on from an early 90s S10 for the map lights

or take the top off and eliminate all blind spots

Try a 5-panel golf cart mirror. No blind spot when using those.

maybe someone swapped in a larger mirror already, factory YJ mirrors aren't that big

you could still try a junkyard for a smaller mirror
