You may want to post this in the Michigan forum, someone from Michigan should know if the state requires side mirrors or not. If they are required there are several options for installing temp mirrors for when the doors are off.

Get some simple mirror relocators and move your existing mirrors to them. Problem solved and you can see behind you when you need to. I never drive it without side mirrors.

I only use 2" convex mirrors stuck on the vents, both sides, never had an issue (knock on wood).

The State of Missuagain, requires 2 mirrors, one rear view interior and one exterior drivers side.

One could argue, that once the top and doors are removed the vents are on the exterior... but I wouldn't try that in court. I have been in my Jeep with the doors off in Tawas and talked to State Police, they never mentioned anything.

Good deal. I hope they are vibration free. They look like they are pretty nice

Drivers side and Rear or Drivers and passenger. Quick trips to town without em ive never had a problem. Anything longer than a hour or two I put mine on.

Go to a Harley Dealership. Theyll look at you like youre an idiot when you tell them its for a Jeep. Ask for the long stem ones. Bout $30. You dont even need a 1/2" wrench to put them on/off if you do it right

ETA: First Post!!!!

Last weekend, I went topless and doorless from Midland, over to Shields... then down M46 all the way through Sagnasty... saw about 5-6 local cops, and one state boy... a couple we next to me at lights... never even raised an eyebrow... and I was only running my 2" mirrors on my vents that day...
