Easy way to see 20% better out of your rear view mirror

Easy way to see 20% better out of your rear view mirror. Of course, in case you have people sitting in the back Fold the seats until the head rest rotates to the back, holded and bring the sit back and double loop with seat bell. No money spent. I know is silly but it works good

Its only a matter of time before a special gadget is made and sold for $40 which does the same thing. Genius thinking man, patent while you can.

Rotate your mirror 180 degrees..........first time i ever heard that...... does that work for any rear view mirror, or is that a JK thing? I am going to have to try that.

About the 180 degrees thing... My first thought was "why do you want to blind the oncoming traffic?"

I flipped my mirror about 181 degrees,,, and took out rear seat.

Next thing is to have Jeep redo the HUGE rear wiper motor,,, That is smack dab blocking a good portion of the rear veiw.

You can also use bungie cords and hook them to the little tie down things behind the seat.

is there a write up on removing the rear headrests? i was looking at them and i cant seem to find a release or an access panel for bolts or anything. whats the trick?

i might just end up folding it back like shown above since my application is because the car seat for my son hits the headrest and wont site back far enough, isnt a problem when positioned in the middle but since i now have another car seat for my baby girl i have to move him over a bit

My rear headrests don't rotate! They fit in just like the front ones, so I removed them.

Actually rotating the mirror is about the same( maybe a lit better ) but the main thing is that after I rotated is a little lower and cant adjusted up because is already all the way up Thanks anyway

I'm not sure if the rear headrest can be removed on the 4 door

this is an old post, but in case any Unlimited folks are wondering, BodyGuy figured out a way (around p. 6 of the thread):
Rear headrest removal

I removed the headrests as soon as I took the top off the first time, my 2 door didn't come with the fancy fold down type. And if by chance I get in an accident with an adult in the back I have cargo nets to help with the whiplash. Will flip mirror around in a few minutes, but then I need to find a new place for my fancy $5 compass that is suction cupped above the mirror.
