Thanks for the info!

WarDamn, you didn't happen to buy you Jeep in the Quad Cities did you? My salesman was a moron, knew nothing about Jeeps. He told me they didn't make tinted soft top windows, to which I responded "like the ones on that one right there?" I quickly learned I knew much more about Jeeps than he did and didn't take anything he said seriously.

Bondgreg I agree, if your rearview is unobstructed your OK. If it is blocked you must have a side view on Drivers side, passenger side is optional.

nick50471 Side mirrors off isn ok as long as your rearview mirror is clear. No big spare tire or trailer.

roadsuk Super cheap TJ mirror relocation

Check this thread out from jocci.com (if the link works). Scroll down to the 8th reply I believe. It appears as long as you have the center mirror unobstructed you are good to go. at least, that is what I do.

Iowa Mirror Laws

Does anyone happen to know definitively what they mirror laws in Iowa are? I can't seem to find much searching besides someone who posted the law from who knows when which made it seem as long as the view wasn't obstructed that having just the rear view mirror was enough to be legal. Anyone know for sure?
