Posed this question to a buddy of mine who is a traffic cop in Grand Haven. He said he has a code to write a ticket for no rear view mirror, but does not have a code to write a ticket for no side view mirror. Also said he has never looked for Jeeps with no doors, thus no mirrors, to write a ticket. He was qiuck to add that he was sure there were officers out there that probably have a hard on to write such tickets. With a little more digging, it was my understanding that having a rear view and a side view mirror was a Federal Law.
I have been running my YJ all summer with no doors, but I did add a Cipa roll bar mount morror on the drivers side, just to cover my a$$. Works fine, and only cost $15.00!

|LilYeller||Look Here for the law. Looks like the side mirror MUST be outside of the vehicle on the drivers side only, no need for pass side one.|

I think the letter of the law is that you have to have 2 operational mirrors - an exterior and the rear-view, or the other exterior...
That being said, I have been driving Wranglers for 15 years in MI with no doors every chance I get and no tickets for only having one mirror yet...

|NewYJOwner||Probably wont fly with rookie cops or sticklers that want to see a real mirror on it. If you live and stay in smaller towns it might not be an issue, larger cities I wouldn't push my luck.|
