Am I the only one who's trying to figure out what that 9 letter word is?

CapptainObvious ^^Those are the exact same ones I have. Do you like them vertical like that? I keep mine horizontal. Also painted mine black and made a bracket to put them in the windshield. Doesn't that kind of limit your visibility into the other lanes?

StinkyMud I suppose I should also note that these are Harley long stem mirrors. My bad, sorry!!!!!!!!

G-Pur I've got the harley mirrors. They don't vibrate, and they're black, so what else could you want? They're the same as these, but I turned mine vertical because I'm just used to the vert Jeep mirror.

The Budd I bought 2 Schwin bicycle mirrors at my local Canadian Tire store for $5 each. they mounted fine on the empty hinges. The passenger side one had to go on the bottom hinge. Some tricky adjusting to get it angled right but they work just fine.

thanks

Thanks for the part number on the mirrors

Hexxum Just because they haven't pulled you over yet, doesn't mean you won't experience a cop on a bad day. I'd rather pay $50 bucks now for the mirrors than the chance at the cost of a ticket AND then have to buy mirrors.

TOW69 The law is fairly open. As long as you have a rear view mirror; side mirrors are not a hard requirement.

Kind of like the window tint law. As long as you have side mirrors you can basically paint your rear and side rear windows black if you want. Not the driver \ passenger windows but all the back windows

I also live in the Houston area and none of the police agencies seem to care much. Local police, County sheriffs, State police HWY and \ or the Texas Rangers

Texas has more levels of law enforcement to keep track of it is crazy to keep track. but none have ever pulled me over for no doors \ side mirrors

Hexxum I have the Olympic Safari mirrors, and even though they vibrate a good deal, it's still better than the look of the Harley mirror. I personally enjoy the wider view of the Safari mirror, and it just looks better on the Jeep. Most states require that you only have 1 mirror on the driver's side. If cost is an issue, buy a set and sell half of it to a Jeep buddy.

InTheSticks I thought Harley mirrors only vibrated when they were attached to an actual Harley

CapptainObvious Here's the link to the bracket I did if it interests you at all.

drivebytruckerz I did the re-location brackets and I regret it. They're about to come off as soon as I can order some harley mirrors.
06-29-2010 10:23 AM
captblack I use the safari mirrors with a round convex added to the top inside corner. This lets me see what's next to me. I do use them a good bit but I used to drive a truck and those mirrors vibrated a bunch.

Backing with my mirrors is no problem - they are big enough to give you a good picture.
06-29-2010 10:06 AM
CapptainObvious I went with the Harley mirrors.

When I got my soft doors, I couldn't put the mirrors in the hinge anymore, so I fabricated a bracket mount for the harley mirrors. I'm gonna try and get pics up tonight if I can in a new thread. I'll post a link on here if I do.

Do the Harley mirrors vibrate a lot as well? I am more using them to be street legal, but if the Harley mirrors are a better 'fit', then I would prefer to go that route.

Anyone have experience with either?
Here are the ones I did, no vibration.

Schmo I run Harley mirrors and don't notice much vibration.
06-28-2010 10:23 AM
clear lake jeepn My personal opinion is the Harley mirrors look like caca! THey just look ridiculous to me. I have been runnning doorless/mirrorless for quite awhile...the cops around the houston area don't seem to really give a flying @#@$@#$@&. I am so used to being mirrorless for so long that even when the doors are ON..I still look back and check.

If you're looking for cars behind you, the Harley mirror will work fine.
If you're going to use the Harley mirrors to read a newspaper behind you, you may want a different mirror.
There is some vibration, but short of reading someones license plate, it works just fine.
06-27-2010 11:25 PM
ZBoater My vote is for the Lange 2. They attach to the windshield brackets and leave the hinges alone.

More to stay legal, but I am trying to weigh which is the best non functional mirror, lol. I prefer the looks of the Olympic, but if the Harley mirror does not vibrate as much and is somewhat functional, I may go that route.
