Daniels Jeep I have been driving all summer with the doors off, and have not been stopped by the police. Being slightly paranoid, I did print out copies of both the MN and WI statutes and put them in the glove box. I figured I could have a polite discussion with the officer if I ever was pulled over.

However, I was really missing having the side mirrors. I recently installed a set of mirrors made by forum member Defiant Systems. They are solid and don't vibrate at highway speeds. Here's a link to his thread:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f123/of...ms-171360.html

The mirrors are slightly convex, so they give a nice panoramic view behind. But objects are closer than they appear!

jppower One thing that I have been looking into is grabbing a pair of motorcycle mirrors like from Harley, I have been told those fit the hinge just fine and best of all some of the selections are fairly cheap.

Here is the Statute which is SO wishy washy.
