Pressure washed the entire underside of the HEEP. Removed, straightened, painted, re-installed the fly wheel inspection plate to stop a rattle. Took it to the river for some light wheeling in the gravel banks and sand.

Can you see those with the doors on? (Mine I can't) if so, where can I get some?

His mirror is mounted to the door hinge. So he can't have those mirrors on and put the door on.

I did my mirrors like this too. I left the stock mirrors on the door, So i can remove my "doorless" mirrors and then put the doors back on which have mirrors still on them.

I have CJ style from Quadratec PN 13001.02 that are great. I have a full cage and hard doors with no issues seeing them. I did have to modify the driver to get it to sit same height as passenger but was easy fix and for less than $30 for the pair you can't beat it. If you swap out the bolts provided for plastic knob bicycle type they are easy to turn in while on trails also. Here's side pic to see and I can try and get you a better pic later if you're interested.

Thanks..I didn't see the attachment point. Thought they were attached to the windshield bolts similar to mine.I have no door mirrors at all.

been thinking about CJ mirrors. I have soft upper half doors which have less window area than hard doors so still may be an issue. Couldn't see great in that pic so if you can get another great.

Thank you both for the advice.

No worries. Those look like they'll definitely be more visible for me. Think I'll pick up a pair soon. Thanks

Productive day. Installed a new cowl seal, painted my bumper cover & caps, and the dash piece I just got from eBay. Also, my signal booster for the radio came in. No more static on local stations! Plus I'm getting a new paint job Monday. 👍

Installed d-rings and trimmed the fenders. A much better look I think. Especially more clearance.

Replaced the radiator. I keep hearing how easy it is to work on a YJ, and I have to say I agree. Even with a fan shroud drop it was not bad at all. (The jeep has a 2" body lift)
Next job on the list is a new alternator, then the A/C system......

Had to replace it because the inlet had a small crack, probably could have welded it back up but I'm pretty sure it's the factory radiator so better safe than sorry.
