Best mirrors with no doors

Summer is almost here and I'm getting ready to take the doors off. What are the best mirrors to use with no doors?

I had mirrors through the hinges once the doors were off, but finally went to these--love them. They mount on the windshield, have quick connects, and are a breeze to take on and off. Rugged Ridge--available multiple places online...here's one link:

I think Defiant Systems make the best mirrors when going doorless. He's a vendor here and makes them as a side job. They're nice and sturdy and offer a very wide field of vision.

Off road Jeep mirrors by Defiant Systems!

They don't stick out as far as this picture would make them appear.

x2, but they are flat so you will want to replace the passenger glass with convex...if you put one on that side.

I have these and hate them. Pass side vibrates, major pain to aim just right, cant see much out of them, they stick out too far, they whistle and are usless for backing up (in my case, backing into a parking spot).

I bought them originaly so I could still have a good view around me while doorless and have the hinge available for (future) soft doors, but now I'll just say forget it and not even use them since in Texas they arent needed.

x3.
a couple of times the mirrors have moved at highway speeds but a pair of pliers I now keep in the center console takes care of this issue.

I got the Mopar relocating brackets, they mount your factory mirrors by the windshield and you get 2 black round filler pieces that bolts in place where the mirrors were. They are around $58.00 shipped. I'm getting my painted to match my doors so they won't stand out..

I really like the American Outlaws but they are a little spendy, I do like the mounting better, but I also like the Olympic 4x4 Safari mirrors as well, and almost half the price of the others. I know a lot of people just go without mirrors, I dislike doing that myself, I need to be able to see behind me.

x4. Got them off of Amazon. Initial install took about 10 minutes. Now it takes about 2 minutes to pop them on. They're the mirrors that are in my pic to the left.

guess it depends on what you are looking for, I did not want to be removing the mirrors every time I put the doors on. I have a plate over the mirror hole on my half doors. If you tighten them down they do not vibrate. You do need to put a convex mirror on the right side and adjust them so you can see them.

A few photos from one of my previous JKs. Once the adjustment is done initially, each time thereafter you just have to swivel the entire setup to the right place then lock them down by hand. Takes 5 minutes. I get some wind noise but not a whistle as someone else mentioned. Mine don't vibrate either. I like the way these look on the doorless JK - kind of retro.
