I have a 2010 Sahara, I like taking the doors off but dont like the fact I cant use my mirrors. I have heard they sell brackets to re-mount the mirrors on the side of the jeep. I have two issues with that, one-i hear you cant see the passanger side very well. Two, I dont like the way it looks. Idealy I would like a way to buy extra mirrors and have a temporary way of installing the mirrors somewhere. Is there a way to utilize the door hinges to set up temporary mirrors?

LOL - That's why I went with a ATV mirror instead... I must say, I painted this with some bedliner to give it some texture, picked up the nylon washers and a 3/8 bolt and 3/8 extension (also painted with bedliner) and it works perfectly... No shake, even at 70 MPH on the highway...
The mirror has a threaded post on it. But it wasn't long enough to extend all the way thru the hinge hole..so i fab'd the little plate out of aluminum..using a cardboard template.
The bracket has 2 holes drilled out, the one the mirror post is going thru is held on with a flange nut.
I just got off the phone with a motorcycle shop guy. He said to check out a Harley store. The mirrors will screw directly in the 1/2 inch hinge, and Harley mirrors have a longer shaft for better visibility.
But I'm running tube doors right now, and those won't work with my tube doors, so I'm using the 6ix Offroad mirror brackets that mount to the windshield bolts right now. 6ix Offroad doesn't have a website so I can't give you a link, but they have a Facebook fan page if you want to check them out.
yomondo, looks like a good option, but a little pricey. For me, I would want to keep the stock mirrors on the door and get another set for the no door days. I think the harley mirrors may not look as good but you cant beat the price. I'm assuming the price is less then the $70 for the brackets plus the mirrors.
