sd72667 Does anyone have "magnetic" mirrors? Wondering if they would be illegal. I have some small magnets that are very strong. Attached to a small lightweight mirror and it becomes boltless. Just a thought.

hardymsu69 I also used the rugged mirror replacement but lost the bolt that holds mirror today, where can i find a 1.5 bolt?

This is what I used and mounted it on the side of the windsheid frame, under the plastic, by the bluetooth speaker. Worked great! $12.99 from O'Reillys, Universal outside mirror. Took about 5 minutes to install. Very sturdy.

jk13 I used these: CIPA 44800/01 - Dual Mirror Set in Black for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with Soft Doors - Quadratec

They are made for TJs but all you have to do is bend the little brackets a little with some pliers and they work PERFECTLY! Only $26.99 for two mirrors. It's about $35 when including shipping.

These work very well with the doors off OR on. I took off my stock mirrors from the door and just put these on the window brackets.

I don't have any close up pics but can post them later if desired.

It should be noted that I sit with the seat all the way back and leaned back. So I can see that blind spot mirror completely.
X2. I have the same brackets for my 08'. I love them. The doors have been off since I put them on.

I like the idea of the blind spot mirror too. I will have to look into this

Works like a champ and doesn't move in the wind.

12JKUR I keep a set of Harley long stem mirrors under the seat. They are a *perfect* install for Wrangler door hinges with their hardware, at $35 (find anything Harley for $35 - can't be done) a great buy and locally to boot, just wish they weren't so "objects are closer than the appear".

Due to laws, they don't work for everyone, but I'm glad I can use them.

I use these, they use your original mirrors, and keep the JEEP look with your doors off.

jorodrigz Hello, I just bought these from Quadratec. Rugged Ridge 11025.10 - Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Kit for 97-12 Jeep® Wrangler TJ, JK, TJ Unlimited & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

I can't wait until they come in. I took the doors off for the first time on Saturday and drove around the parking lot only because I lacked mirrors.

Guess I walked into that one. Nice to see a fellow Samurai of Sarcasm ply his trade.
