YJ Full Door Mirrors

Hey guys,

I am still after correcting everything on my YJ. I am now tackling the full doors as the mirrors are broken off (when I purchased the Jeep). I found the correct mirrors, but when I look at the bases that are mounted on the doors currently, the one is much longer than the other and it seems like they should be matching.

I am thinking that they just rigged the one side on like they did with the rest of the Jeep.

Any ideas are appreciated.

BTW, I have several things to add to my build page and will be posted tonight.

Thanks ahead guys!!

I just bought a set of full doors and am in the process of overhauling and rebuilding them. They came with matching mirrors that would probably work just fine.

I am currently running CJ mirrors that are mounted on my windshield hinges and I plan to continue to use them. They are what I am accustomed to, and with them, I can take my doors off and not be concerned with changing mirrors. That's just me.

IRQ asks for pics. If you post a few pics, it will help us help you.

Good Luck, L.M.

Mirrors

I checked Quadratec and the Crown Automotive Part # 55027207k looks like the same ones that are stock on my 93Yj. Might see if that is what you bought. This is mine. I also have a set that attaches to the hinges for when I have the top off.

Thanks for the reply guys. Yeah I wanted to post pictures but figured I would get the thread up before hand. Here are the pictures now. As you can see on the one, it goes over that body line in the door.

I have the brackets for the windshield bracket to relocate the mirrors, but the guys at Quadratec told me that the passenger side won't be visible unless I look through the windshield to it. I will post the brackets I also have.

The pictures of the mirror mounts are the attachments.

The guys at Quadratec are correct. The passenger CJ mirror mounts so that you look at it through the windshield. Not really an issue once you get used to it. I didn't have any problem. CJ owners deal with it all the time.

Based on your posted pics, I think that what you have on the passenger door is the remnants of a correct setup. Simply pop the cap off the passenger side mirror and it should reveal a base similar to what you have left on your drivers door. Yes, the PO probably screwed whatever he had to the drivers door but once you unscrew both bases, you can attach the correct mirrors to the blind nuts that I would expect to find riveted to the door panel.

Perhaps the PO mounted the drivers door mirror where he did because the old screws were broken off in the blind nuts. He might have simply drilled new holes rather than remove the broken screw.

Let us know what you find.

Good Luck, L.M.

Thank you for the response bud. But don't you notice the one base is longer than the other one?

I have a stock full door mirrors, in a box somewhere...Pull the bases off of both...weld up the holes and go with mirror relo brackets....problem solved. That's what I did...the passenger mirror is not completely usless...I have angled just right so I can keep an eye on my CB antenna..it's about 2' taller than the top...don't wanna catch it on something...

LM,
Interested in seeing how a body man redoes these doors...keep us posted on your progress.

sccritterkiller, I am working on a thread showing how I made door trim panels. I have one almost done and will complete the other one while the doors are at the paint shop.

I have the drivers door almost all welded up but my welding helmet crapped out and I won't be going into town to buy another one until Wednesday. I stripped the passenger door today and will fit it to the Jeep tomorrow.

There is a link posted on this forum a week or two ago to a site where someone already did what I am doing. I don't remember the name of the forum. Perhaps another poster might remember it. That's where I got the inspiration to get full steel doors and rebuild them.

I'll post some pics of the doors in a few days.

Good Luck, L.M.

doors

Lucky Mac are you talking about when I replaced my seals on my doors? That thread was on 12/19/16. It was from Mid South forum titled Cj full door repair.

Yep, that's the one. It inspired me to get a set of full doors and once I have them painted and mounted, I should be able to sell my half doors with the fiberglass uppers for what I have invested in the rebuilt full steel doors.

Good Luck, L.M.
