jr West Coast Mirrors
 
Has anyone put Jr West Coast Mirrors on their Jeep?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I drive a truck for a living and love huge mirrors. I live in Las Vegas and never run with doors. The Jr mirrors seem to be of proportionate size for a Wrangler but I've never seen them installed on a YJ or any other model.

Does anyone have any input or pics?

umm....CJ style mirrors are plenty big enough for me, can be run with/without doors, and have a MUCH more traditional Jeep look :)

I guess I'm exploring this option option because I just bought windshield light mounts and realized that they displace my CJ style mirrors. Since I never run with doors where do I move my mirrors to? The JR west coast mirrors are slightly less wide than the CJ mirror but twice as high. Just looking to be different without being obnoxious.

I think I'd look much more into the pickup truck type mirrors on the arm. I'm sure someone will post some pictures of what I'm talking about.

i looked at those type of mirrors. i think they are great but since texas only require one rear view mirror to pass inspection, the one on the windshield covers me for when the doors are off

with the double arms like that, and the layout of the fender/windshield frame, I'm not sure where you'd mount them even if you wanted to

I think you are right. Mounting them might get awkward. I might try one just for grins. I've spent $25 on worse. If it doesn't look just plain bad I'll post some pics.

I say go for it. They are unique and I've never seen anything like that on a Jeep before.

Did you ever try it? I always liked the idea of West Coast style mirrors on the Jeep, especially for towing the trailer. I'd love to see pics.

I like the look. I might steal the idea. Just got my YJ on Thursday so I'm working with a blank canvas.

I didn't try it yet. I had to buy a complete soft top to the tune of almost 1G. That set back my plans a little. I'm still working with a left mirror that vibrates like crazy and the right side that isn't even visible with the soft door on.

How sturdy would those be if you got rid of the top arm?

By design they need the top and bottom arm.

I'd break them off so fast it wouldn't be funny. They wouldn't last just to get me to a camping spot!

Maybe you can build a bracket out of angle that would connect the top and bottom and be able to mount from one side.
