|no_limits_jeep||they also have a switch that can be installed into the fuse block where the fuse goes to bypass the fuse and then you have a switch that still uses a fuse but you can turn it on or off simply by the flip of a switch.|

for few weeks before it starts peeling again.
I sanded mine down with the dremmel tool to bare metal. Painted it. Currently its worse than where it started because when cleaning it up, i chipped the loose bits of paint so now there is more of the metal uncovered.
There was some one that made a joke about them. Just paint them faster than they peel. I find this very true.

|evs||Wow, my driver side mirror bracket looks just like that. The paint has corroded off in the same spot and has some white powerdery residue. I sanded most of it off without taking the mirror off. I was going to try to repaint it this weekend.|

|2much||Heard of some guys having visibility issues with the mirror movers. Check your state, in some you are only required to have one rear veiw mirror|
|06-10-2008 05:23 PM|
Mirror movers are in all of the Jeep catalogs like Four Wheel Drive Parts and Quadratec. They look like this and allow you to use your factory mirrors...

ok so the doors are off, Now I need a quick easy cheap fix to get a somewhat decent mirror on one side. I dont care if its actually functional I just want it to look good enough for the "MAN".
Im in the middle of doing a search right now, but havent ciome up with much.
Maybe something I can put together myself???

well i got the doors off pretty easily for them never being off...ever.
Got a little creative with a 2 ton floor jack, 3 bricks, a piece of wood and a beach towel, lol.
Sounds a little much but it took less than 30 seconds to get each one off. And about a minute to execute the whole jack brick wood thing.

I have yet to have the "map light" stay on, in my 08, when I take the doors off.....hmmmmmmmmm

|Triple88a||i donno might be because i dont like messing with the tiny fuses giving or a chance of damaging the fuse holder thingy.|

I unplug the plug at the door. If this is your first time doing so, simply reach behind the dash where the button for the door is, Find the wire for the button, grab the plastic end and push it towards you so this will make the button come out of the dash so then you can see how its connected together.. To unplug it, grab both ends and pull. Let the wire dangle around in there. it sounds harder than it actually is so..
To remove the doors, undo the nuts (i think 13mm wrench should do it) and then unhook the strap on the inside and pull the entire door UP. If it doesnt come out, swing it in and out as you're pulling up. The passenger doors was my hardest since it doesnt get much use.

|KBR97||alright found the fuse and pulled it...Now I just have to get the doors off. Original owner told me he never had them off...this is gonna be fun.|
|06-10-2008 03:28 PM|
ok I just went and looked. its the bottom right fuse. It is marked "Door Sw Defeat"
In case you dont dont how to get to the fuse box...
open the glove box door...there is a black strap on the right hand side...just slide it out of the door. Then lower the glove box door and it will come off at the hinge. You will see the fuse box behind there.

|TxFireman1972||there is a fuse behind the glove box to pull. it is even marked something like "door disable"|
|06-10-2008 03:07 PM|
where is that plug?...behind where the little door pin is?
I was thinking of just pulling the fuse?
|06-10-2008 03:06 PM|
|4point||There's a fuse block behind the glove box. Pull the one for the dome lites/dinger and no more problem.|
|06-10-2008 02:57 PM|
|Dare2BSquare||unplug the door switch.|

doors off/map light question
anyone know any at home remedies for keeping your map lights off when you remove the doors.
I know i can order those little clips, but does anyone have any good temporary fixes until then?
