draarong2004 i did research on this myself for a lil bit, state of indiana law states that you have to have at least 1 mirror that will allow you to see 200 feet behind you, doesn't specify location of mirror. Unless you have a medical slip that states otherwise(i.e. you need all mirrors installed on vehicle) you can go door less so long as you have a rearview mirror

Hexxum I prefer to have a mirror, but wanted something convenient as well if I want to take the doors off in a hurry. I bought these to fill the need.

ksdindy This is great information!!! I was ready to pull the trigger on a kit to relocate mirrors, but I'm glad I won't have to.

IndyGoat Thanks for the information, dblackwellstj. It is refreshing to hear a response on this subject from LE. The only items I have ever been able to find on the subject are not terribly definitive. Specifically, IN Code 9-19-12 deals with rear-view mirrors and it states (in part) that a vehicle "must be equipped with a mirror so as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway for a distance of at least 200 feet to the rear of the vehicle". Never could find anything else on the subject. I would hope that a center, window-mounted mirror would suffice. Personally, I upgraded to a four-panel Wink (c) mirror for a greatly improved view. Thanks for the input !!

dblackwellstj I'm a police officer and we don't mess with the no doors, no mirror thing, just wear your seatbelt, and have some sort of rearview mirror and your fine.

jpthng Passed numerous cops on highways, sitting at stop lights, and speed traps. No issues not having doors on with no mirrors. I'm also in Porter Co. Just keep the seat belt on.

IndyJeepMan You dont need any side mirros here in Indiana, only the rearview. Doorless is legal, just buckle up and have fun .

My doors wont come back on till late fall, I live south of Indianapolis.

Big_B Typically it isn't the doors that are an issue. The issue is usually if you have mirrors or not. I know in NC you need to have your drivers side mirror on - passenger side is optional. Last time I brought my Jeep in for inspection, the top was down, doors were off, one mirror on.....passed without issue! They didn't even question it.

Driving with the doors off getting pulled over?

So I live in porter county and just can't really find anything about driving with the doors off, with or without a side mirror. I called the state police and the guy who answered the phone said I could drive with the doors off just buckle up. I guess I just wanted to hear from anyone who has ran into issues with this happening to them. The reason I ask is I'm pretty sure a cop tried to pull me over this morning on 94. Long story but I got off on my exit shortly after he turned on his lights. I'm not even sure if he was after me or just someone else but it got me thinking.
