I know this wont be a popular mod, but I figured it would be good info if somebody was interested in better mirrors.
I'm not the pioneer on this, a jeep on youtube had them and I fell in love with the look.
My jeep and the one on youtube are the only Jeeps Ive seen with this mod so far, hopefully there will be a couple more if my write up is good enough!
The New YJ mirrors made by crown, bought from PORC, $49.99 for pair
I was lucky enough to have a base model with external mirrors adjusters so I just had to remove the spring to take the mirrors off
These are the interior mirrors bolt covers. You can see I cut the bottom off of one, so it could fit on the external of the body.
Mirror gone. you can see the piece of tape as a mock up for where the the mirrors are going to go.
The plastic piece taken from the inside, flipped and cut to go on the outside, (I dont have a pic of it but I used a flat head bolt to hold it on)
The point of no return! used a paint marker around the edge of the hole to discourage rust.
You can see the bolt holding the cover for the old mirror hole and the three nuts holding on the mirror. I used locktight to keep those puppies from dethreading..
And your done! this is a closeup.
And this is the farawayup.

I don't know how I missed this thread the first time around I am REALLY digging the Wrangler mirrors. Good Job Hussler
I agree with attempting to find a way to mount them, so you don't have to rig anything up when you go doorless though. I'm not really digging the look of them mounted on the fenders like the ones in the link above. So, what options does that leave? Oh the frame by the windshield like wranglers are with the relocation brackets??? Maybe???
