MA law?
 
Is it true that I can not ride with the doors off without mirrors? If so how do I move them?

Ummm....mirror relocation brackets or motorcycle mirror.

I picked up a set of Harley long stem mirrors. They mount right into the top (or bottom, but why?) hinge bracket that the door mounts on. It's a super easy thing to do.

Yes it is true, by the way.

Warrior Products WAR1500 - Warrior Products Mirror Relocation Brackets in Black for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

I have these for my TJ. 2 17mm nuts, and they move. I put bubble mirrors in the bottom outter corner of the mirrors, so you don't have to try as hard to adjust them

I'll have to look when I get home. I keep them in their original boxes, so there should be some info on them.

Yeah I don't care how much we're getting, I refuse to lift my shovel again until December at the earliest. Its warm enough to melt off in two days now anyway.

Dianeakamommy 04-01-2011 06:14 AM

New that I have a JEEP I will be shoveling just a path to it and let it just go right through!! I woke up today with just a dusting, but damn those roads look icy.

Yes you have to have mirrors on your Jeep.

MudSlinger16 04-14-2011 08:34 PM

:wavey:Heyy thereee. no you dont..well depends there isss a loop hole..i called the police station myself and there first responce was yes u need mirrors..they then asked if i was driving a jeep i said yes..they said well is ur rear window tinted( yes it is) therefore i would have needed atleast one side view ..but come to find out if you have a none tinted window u just need a rear view..but if u do have a tinted just take ur top off ..it counts :D

You do not need to relocate or have side mirrors if your review mirror is attached, and you do not have obstruction out the back window. Below is what I posted on a separate thread, and feel free to lookup the MA 540CMR400 law.

"I was interested in mirror and tire laws, and found this great website for all states. Massachusetts Lift Laws | Vehicle Modification Rules. MA 540CMR400 shows that only a rearview mirror is required in MA, unless there is obstruction of view through the back window, or excessive tinting."

This is great info on the side view Mirror requirements and a great link to the laws.

I have seen many with mirror relocation brackets but I have never seen one with Harley long stem mirrors ...? I don't think so anyway.

The mirror relocation bracket ones look normal, I don't see why they just aren't all like that.

What do the Harley ones look like on ?
Do they look weird ?
Does anyone have a picture (or a link) ?

I would use the relocation brackets to be safe... The tire in your back window can DEFINITELY be classified as an "obstruction of view"
