mirrors

I've been looking for some mirrors so I can drive with my doors off. I found these Smittybilt Part No. 7504 - Side View Mirrors but I'm not sure if there what I'm looking for. If anyone knows or can help id appreciate it. Thanks.

Lots of people are using ATV and motorcycle type mirrors which tend to be cheaper.

Those look like direct replacement that bolts on the doors. Like Dextreme states, go to a motorcycle shop and some Harley mirrors will slide in the door hinges perfectly. Some here don't recommend the mirror relocate brackets because the passenger mirror is pretty much useless with the doors back on.
I recommend mirrors and foot pegs from here: (works well)

check out the sahara mirrors...go right into the hinge when the door is off. a bit shaky, but legal and they are somewhat useful for changing lanes, etc.

Whatever you do don't buy mirror relocation brackets. They are terrible. probably going to to take them off, thats how bad they are.

CIPA 44800/01 - Dual Mirror Set in Black for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with Soft Doors - Quadratec

i got these-i wanted something that was there all the time and for door storage i wanted the old mirrors off. they do vibrate(so did the stock ones) and they whistled but takeing the rubber off fixed that. i do like em and i like the look(CJ retro)

I guess another good question to know is if taking doors off in michigan even legal. I've seen a lot of people driving with no doors but i was just told i could get pulled over for it. Anyone from michigan know about this?

Probably because the passenger mirror is worthless with the doors on. Its view is blocked by the door.
