I forgot about surplus stores. Probably bc most around me way over charge for every thing.

Usually yes, but sometimes you can get them cheap. I know I looked at one not too far from me in Missouri and they were selling them for like $15 with a case.

Got the mirrors mounted tonight and realized... I hate them and they are also useless. Oh and I get the added benefit the my jeep now looks like it has lopsided wings!

The only upside that I can come up with is that I now own a butane torch, a large can of PB Blaster and 2 full sets of Ryobi brand ez-outs (1 was bought as a backup and will be returned). And I guess I get to plan a trip to Fastenal to see if I can get some replacement bolts to fill the holes when I take these mirrors off and return them.

(I'll add the pics later because the WF app keeps crashing when I try it from my phone... )
Thats how those king of mirrors always are they are like the old CJs. The one that is bent up is made too look through the windshield at the passenger mirror. (at least on the cjs)

I tried to bend and twist it every way that I could think of. No good. I just put them in the box to either return to Amazon or list on CL. All I really want is some small round mirrors that I can clip onto my soft half doors when I run them. I'll put the stockers back on the hard doors later tonight. Rain in the forecast - batton down the hatches.

I would've called the cops on him for vandalizing property. Or slashed the tires of said Honda.

I think its time for a Potato in the tailpipe of the Honda, as well as a dead fish on the floor of the back seat next time they leave their windows down. Forget that shit I would have flipped, no one screws with my property let alone my jeep.

I am NOT a violent person, anyone that knows me will tell you that, but the jeep is my hard earned work and if someone is willing to destroy that, I will defend myself...I ran over a kids bike when I caught him on camera(my house has cameras) breaking into the jeep.

There is also the option of doing what they did to you to them because they cant take their carpet out. Treat people how you want to be treated and it sounds like they want you to coat their carpet in that crap.

Finally installed the LED taillight conversion kit that I've had since last year! Really happy with the result, I'm always nervous about cutting into her! Completely content and I'll try and post some night shots when I get the chance. They definitely let everyone know I'm there!!!

Nice! Those look like the same reverse lights I have. They're not very bright, IMO.
