Side mirror recommendations?

I want to get black side mirrors but I'm looking for an inexpensive mirror
that can be mounted so I can take the doors off. Recommendations?

They aren't black, but you could remedy that pretty easily. This is the route I'm going.

Works perfect. Ive had this for the last 5 years on 2 different jeeps. One i painted black and it held up fairly well. The current is still chrome due to laziness. The mirror i use is a smaller convex one cuz i like that its smaller and i still have good vision

That's what I went with too. Gotta get one for the passenger side yet, but works great on the driver side. I used a zip tie to keep it from rattling too much. Think it was like $20. (Here's my pictures of it.)

How about a pair like these?

I don't know the size of the bolt, but it already comes with a bolt & nut, plus it's kinda stylish, too.

I gotta question too!

I was just fixin' to make a new thread when I saw this one already on the board.
Anyway, the passenger side mirror on the YJ flops over whenever I am driving into a headwind or the door get slammed. Is there any way to tighten the head on the stock mirrors?

Just the head is loose? Then no, no adjustment. There is a nut underneath to adjust the folding arm.

Yup, it flops inward and down when I encounter a headwind gust. So, time to troll Amazon for some replacements I guess!

There is a phillips head screw on the bottom side of the mirror that will tighten up the adjustment so it won't flop around. Kinda hard to get to - mine was frozen up, but I got it broke loose, adjusted, then tightened up again.
The arm has a nut at the bottom that can be adjusted for it too.

Yup. A quick Google search led me on the way to enlightenment. I found the two phillips head screws and tightened them up. Will try them out this weekend and see if it helped. I only got about 1/8 of a turn on each. To get to the inboard one I found that I had to twist the mirror head to the back in order to get the screwdriver up in there.

Pics?
I had my mirror off looking for a way to tighten the head and didnt see any. Just the arm bolt for the folding function.

Just fold the mirror to the window and look on each side of the bellows that covers the head mount. You should see one inboard and on outboard.
