Get the Safari for $65. I just got them myself and put them on last week. I actually like them better than my hard door mirrors, I think they give a better view. They shake at highway speeds, but you can still see objects enough to know if you can change lanes etc. But hey, if you are doorless, yer topless which means yer looking over yer shoulder anyway, am I right? Its prolly the best option in a state that requires two mirrors that you can actually SEE in. Motorcycle size mirrors are great to pass inspection or be legal with, but lets be honest, they don't give much of a viewing. The Safari are easy to install, took about 15 minutes including adjusting them. Got them from JC Whitney and got free shipping last week. Good luck!

I never have my doors on and don't need mirrors but my mom felt safer if I had them so I got the rampage mirror relocation brackets and used my factory mirrors. They work great.

Yeah, it's a single nut on the bottom. I greased mine just cause New England weather sucks and likes to rust everything. I got the black ones and the paint job is pretty good and completely covers everything except the mirror hardware, but it's zinc plated, so no worries there. I can take pics tomorrow if you want. Gotta change my starter anyway :(

I bought the rugged ridge relocation mirrors and brackets from quadratec awhile back. Recently replaced my mirrors on my harley. Now I use the old harley mirrors on the jeep. They work great! They drop right down in the top hole the door stud would go when doors are on. I like round mirrors on a wrangler so I hope to make brackets to permanently mount round harley lights on my tj. I will remove the mirrors off the doors and run the harley mirrors all the time.

I actually really like my mirror relocation brackets, It gives a nice little contrast to my red jeep, and I think it gives it a cool look. Hard to explain...but it makes sense to me sooo......
