Thumbs up Jeep JL Rear View Mirror

One complaint about the JL Wrangler is the rear view mirror. It blocks a significant amount of the windshield. I'm 5'7", so I can only imagine it is a worse problem for most drivers.

Doing a search, I found several users who also complained about this issue. There were some that said they were able to "flip" the mirror upside down, and it helped. Several others said they tried this, and it either broke the mount, or pulled the mirror off of the mount.

I tried it one afternoon, and it worked like a charm. 10 seconds, and I had found the best hack for me Jeep.

Here is a link to my video, showing how to do it:

When I sat in a JL for the first time, this is what perturbed me the most. I'm 6'4, the mirror just about blocked most of the right side. I have a '15 JK. I moved the mirror in the first week of ownership. Heat to the button to remove it and mirror cement to move it all the way up. There will be some aftermarket parts for this eventually to move it up for the JL.

Good video, very simple.
