I took my top and doors off. Now it's about to storm

I don't know what to do as far as putting my side mirrors back on...any suggestions?

Don't worry about the rain. It seems it will have a hard time getting in since your jeep is upside down!

Easy fix. (Tight space though) and didn't cost much. There's a thread on here about fixing it.

I bought relocation brackets and hated the look. So I bought a mirror at pep-boys auto that is generic and has an adjustable arm. Ran a bolt through the tip of the arm and through the empty door hinge and tightened it up. Used a couple nylon washers so I didn't damage the hinge bushing. Works like a charm a d cost $9

Buff away. But if you plan on offroading in the future you might as well forget it. It's a jeep. It's gonna get scratched. I put mine down ATV trails. It sucks hearing that sound of tree limbs dragging down your paint. But here in the south we like to call that a little redneck pinstriping.

Scratches? Leave that one there, that way when you get more you won't know if they are new lol.
Just kidding, somewhat. Mine has some scratches most of which would likely buff off but if I do, New ones will show up a week or teo later.

I do worry about wheeling with my soft top though. Scratches on the fabric quickly become leaks.

I think a brawler bar would look good with the fatter fenders. Give it a beefy look.

Hmmm that's more towards what I was leaning for myself, so sounds like a winner to me!

Ordered and now waiting on my Dirtworx rear bumper and tire carrier. I can finally get rid of the donut looking stock spare hanging on the back. Just need to order a cooper stt and rim to be all set. For the 3rd brakelight I will probably go with mounting one in center of spare.

Ya know, with a lil extra speaker wire, he coulda spun it around, and not left that big hole between the sound bar and the roll bar.....much cleaner lookin. Just an observation.....that's what I did.
