I have been thinking about using a spare set of windshield dash brackets to make mirror mounts. I have the old style CJ hand screws for my windshield and easily have enough thread to bolt a second set of brackets over the existing ones. If trimmed down so the top half is fitted around the top bolts, and some square stock welded to the top of the bracket over the bolt head's, and a set of CJ style mirrors bolted to the square tube maybe 8" out from the bracket. Then all I need to do is to remove the hand knob, place the mirror and bracket over the original bracket, and reattach them with the hand knob. Being trimmed around the top bolts will make it so that they can be mounted without removal of the torx bolts at the windshield, while keeping them from moving.

I will try to add some photos when I make them, but hopefully that gives somebody another idea.

Unfortunately, the OP lives in a state where they require at least one side mirror at all times.

Laybackman really did a nice job with his. I have safari mirrors for when I drop the windshield because I have to have at least one rear facing mirror. BTW, safari mirrors suck. They bounce all over the place and are basically there for looks.

Here's what I've been using for years. They're cheap, easy, and fold completely into the cab, when you're offroading.

The only thing I would add is star washers, to keep them from folding in on the freeway.

The one on me jeep replaces the one I'm holding. It was just a flimsy tube that I bent. It came with the mirror and I got the set at pep boys. I'm not the best welder but it will hold just fine for my needs. Just cut some 1" flat stock from Lowes in half and bent/drilled as needed.

I used the more modern Mopar sideview mirrors and adapted it to a Skid Row relocation bracket with a custom machined piece. I attached the detail drawing for the custom machined piece. I drilled a hole through the mirror arm and put a bolt right down the center. I kept the original spring in the mirror base so I could still tighten the bolt and get some preload from the spring to allow it to rotate but not move from wind resistance. The counterbore in the custom machined piece keeps the spring located.
