Removing Doors...Mirrors?

Is there a CO law where if you remove the doors you have to still have the side mirrors? I want to take off my doors and need to know if I need mirror relocating brackets. I really don't use my side mirrors with the top off.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure about the law, but I drive all the time with my doors off and no side mirrors and have not been hassled yet.

You use the side mirrors with the top off? but you do use them when its on?

I'll be getting some of the Harley mirrors from the local dealer to slip in the door hinge bracket when the doors are off. They seem to be cheaper than the relocation brackets. And just a simply attach with a nut..

The law in Colorado says that you need at least a driver side mirror on... I made my own brackets for 5 bux

I used a bike mirror and screwed it onto my Jeep through the bracket that holds the door in place. Cost me literally nothing.

check this thread... I think as long as you can see out the back with your rear-view mirror, you are ok without side mirrors:

I have the relocation brkts on the s/v mirrors, but when the doors are ON, can't see out the right s/v mirror. Is that normal? Can see fine, w/o the doors on, but not WITH the door on. Go figure.

That's exactly why I won't remove my side mirrors from my doors! When I actually need my right side mirror, it's blocked by the actual door! Lol so screw it, they stay on my doors... I might just go without side mirrors and door less all summer!

You can run your jeep here " Texas" with no mirrors. But ya can't see anything Has anyone pulled their top and doors and started to drive or back up The first thing you do is look to the mirror that is no longer there. you are used to them and need them. The aftermarket " bolt on's" are the way to go.

I went to Apex Motorsports in the Springs and picked up a set of motorcycle mirrors to use when my doors are off. They fit perfectly into the empty door hinge and bolt right up. They actually look great, work great, and only cost $20. Next time I have the doors off I'll take some pics and post them

I have heard a few people have had luck with Harley mirrors, and some other generic motorcycle mirrors, because they can be positioned so you can actually see them.

You just stick the base bolt into the hinge bracket on the body and tighten the nut.
