What do I do about mirrors?

So today I took my doors off and my jeep looks AWESOME!! However, I'm left with a problem...I don't know what to do about my side mirrors. Any suggestions on how or where I could mount them?

Thanks


Sorry about the picture being upside down. I uploaded from my phone.

If it's not illegal where you live to ride without them, just turn your head :D that's what I do

I just installed the relocation brackets on my jeep. The passenger side is a little hard to see outnof with the door on but it does the job. It only takes 30 minutes to install.

I've been thinking about getting a set of these. Don't have to mess with relocation.

Support a Vendor for this site and get an awesome quality mirror for $60. Defiant Systems | All Products | Online Store Powered by Storenvy

He also has a thread in the vendor section. Love my mirrors!

x2. I have these and love them. Easy on/easy off unlike the Harley mirrors. No bolts/nuts to worry about, the magnet is secure and good passenger side view angle.
I wouldn't mind the Defiant mirrors in the above link but the magnet versus nuts/bolts is a major plus for me going with JustAddMud mirrors.

I just bought the Rugged Ridge Quick release mirrors. They look decent quality, but the problem is that sent the wrong screws in the kit.

Around here, even tho your supposed to have one side mirror, ive never heard of anybody getting in trouble for not having one. I got some rugged ridge quick quick release mirrors off amazon. They work fine and that seemed to be the cheapest place to get them.

I bought Die-tech brackets a couple of months ago and really like them. Here is a link to their website:

Track down a set of half doors on craigslist. They look good, include mirrors, and offer some protection if you get t-boned in an intersection.

I bought a set of Harley mirrors, they fit right into the top hinge and work perfect..

Another option: muffler clamp + round convex mirror from the local parts store attached to the roll bar

I just mounted a pair of these relocation brackets from Warrior Products and leave them mounted year round. I bought a pair of cheap factory replacement mirrors so I can leave the originals on the doors. Then it only takes one bolt on each side to mount the mirrors when I take the doors off. About 3 minutes. Warrior Products WAR1500 - Warrior Products Mirror Relocation Brackets in Black for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

The mirror on the passenger side is about half usable, but I always just look behind anyway.

Those do look good, but I would worry to death that someone would swipe my $80-$90 mirrors!

X3 on die tech. Great product

Several guys on here have fabbed their own for cheap...there should be a thread or 2 on the forum about how to do that if you are interested. I went the Harley route myself. I think paid about $30 for one mirror for the drivers side, which is all I really need

True but you can still do that with others with a pair of pliers.

I use these and love them. I store them in the "trunk" in a small box.

I bought the "deluxe" kit that came with foot-pegs.

The BEST $100 +/- I spent on my LJ!

I scored at the local flea market, $10 for both..

Eddie2005unlimited 06-22-2013 12:04 PM

I just put on my quick change mirrors from just add mud that davinosaka posted about above.


I got the mirrors and foot pegs and love them. Now I'm doorless and legal.

Those Di tec look like the best thing I've seen except I don't leave my doors off for long periods of time and would have to keep swapping the mirrors but I do like those.
just bought a convex mirror at the local parts store and attached it to a 5 inch pc of steel tubing then drilled a 3/8 hole for a bolt and i'm off and running in 3 min. if someone steals it they got a 5 dollar mirror.
