Side mirrors for no doors?
 
Do they make an after market side mirror for when my doors are off? I presume something could bolt onto the door hinges and function perfect.. iv just never seen one...

heres some for the YJ, Mirror Relocation Brackets for Jeep Wrangler - Quadratec just FYI i bought a set of relocators for my TJ and HATE them, i can not see my passenger side mirror AT ALL with the doors ON, they work great with them off but not worth it IMO

heres some cheaper / easier ones Mirror Relocation Brackets (Black) 87-95 Jeep YJ

cue1104 05-15-2011 01:09 AM

the relocation mirrors kind of suck. i bought them and they are always moving because the mirrors have ridges that go into the original mounts that keep the mirrors from moving around. i am always having to readjust drivers mirror and if doors are on i cant even see the passenger mirror. i thought they were a waste on money.

scgeek12 05-15-2011 01:11 AM

mine tend to stay in the same spot pretty well but ya like i said earlier i cant see the passenger one at all, i HATE them lol i have an ad on craigslist right now trying to trade them for stock ones (like a dumb *** i tossed mine)

I work at a heavy duty truck shop and got a 6" convex mirror with an L bracket that they use on the side mirrors of the trucks. I took a 5/16 x 3" bolt nut and lockwasher and put it through the bracket and hinge when i take the doors off. Cheap and effective. I'll post up the part # and pics tomorrow.

Depending on the state you may only be required to have two rear facing mirrors. The inside one would count as one and the driver's door the other.

Of course even with the top down and almost no blind spots, it is nice to have that passenger mirror.

JDsDream 05-15-2011 05:43 AM

Motorcycle mirrors. Make sure that the stems are long enough to extend through the bottom of the hinge so that you can put a nut on the end. Cheap and works great.

Harley long stem mirrors work great. Mine don't vibrate any more than the original mirrors do, and you can actually SEE the passenger side.

NewYJOwner 05-15-2011 08:16 AM

I think I paid around 50.00 for the pair from a Harley dealer. Do some searching, you could probably find them for less.
Look for Long Stem harley mirrors.

The view from the drivers seat...

Best/ easiest mirrors in the world

I took out the twist knob and ran a bolt thru it and just keep and allenwrench in my glove box so no one can steal them...a little pricey but they more than make up for it in terms of ease and convenience

teknoid 05-15-2011 10:20 AM

I bought mine on ebay. $27.50 each. They're about the same at the dealer, but my local place didn't have any in stock.

I got a set of bicycle mirrors for $10 (for set) and they look exactly the same. Check out the box stores that sell bikes.

Will do! Even though I have never been pulled over for no mirrors.... yet

Reaperonin 05-15-2011 12:00 PM

My fear is simply safety..it is very inconvenient to crane my neck around.. I like the bicycle mirror idea... ill have to look at the mounts though...
Sadly, harley store is closed today anyways..lol
