Safari Mirror Suggestions

Looking to buy a set of Safari Mirrors for a 93 YJ. I want to utilize the door top hinge bracket for mounting mirrors when the doors are off. However when the doors are on I want to be able to remove them and not have additional brackets or hardware left on the Jeep. The two options I have seen are Quadretec with square Head and Olympic 4x4. Any suggestions and or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

If you want to go the cheap route like me get a set of used Harley mirrors. They work great. Little vibration but not to bad. They are also kind of small. I don't rely on them a ton since I always look over my shoulders.

I did the same thing, Harley mirrors. Only problem I have is how low they sit I have to bend down to actually use them. I don't. Just had to put something there so I don't get pulled over.

I used a windshield mount that i found cheap on line and mounted the safari mirrors to that only problem is that the passenger side is useless if the window is attached to the door. Half doors no window its fine or no doors. But i just look over my shoulder too

I got the quadratec ones that go straight into the hinge slots. I like them but they vibrate quite a bit.

I made these. They work great and only about $20 total. I have since gotten a longer bolt to get the passenger mirror out further.

Very creative. That's an excellent solution.

I went with CJ mirrors, my mirrors mount to windshield hinge. I no longer have half doors so no need. Just set of soft doors and hard full doors.
