I made a bracket that mirrors the windshield hinge and was going to ise the stock bolts. Since none of my windshield bracket bolts would come out, I lost my temper and drilled 2 holes through the hinge and then tapped the holes. Put a piece of duct tape on the back of the bracket and bolted it up. 3/8" piece of rod bent up and then out and one of the cheapo mirrors from Advanced on the end. Cost me about $12 for the whole setup.








Now, a State Trooper here in NC told me you must have at least 2 points of rear view (mirrors) and that even the little corner mirrors you stick on your actual mirrors will work. So for a long time I ran one of the square half moon stick-on mirrors mounted to the dash just below my speaker on the driver's side. Worked alot better than I expected! They do pretty goot when offroading too, gives you a great view of the tire as well as the rocker without having to crane your neck.

I use some offroad racing mirrors i picked up at ORW a couple years ago. Just stick i bolt right through the hinge hole. Easy to put on and take up, not too big. Perfect for the trail

Just like these http://pitstopusa.com/i-5063261-cole...l-bracket.html

Had these:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/13011_02.htm
Hated them. Vibrated a lot, and the mounting hardware started to rust after just one season.

Now I have these:
http://www.quadratec.com/products/13025_05.htm
Along with factory half-door mirrors, I like them a lot better than the previous ones, although I did have to grind down the heads of the bolts a little on one side so they wouldn't prevent the doors from lifting off the hinge (the instructions say you can't use them with doors, but if you grind it down a little I have no problem with both half and full doors).

My only real complaint about them is that it's nearly impossible to see the passenger side mirror no matter where I have it set. Best I can do is set the mirror as far forward as it'll go and peek at it through the lower corner of the windshield, but it's not usually a huge problem since I only run those mirrors when I have the top off, and I can just do a head check instead.

mirrors when doorless

I use CJ type mirrors cut down to reduce vibration. got the idea from laybackman

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/m...95-yj-1397157/

you can actually see out of the right side mirror too.

Yeah, I stopped at the local bike shop & picked up a take-off harley mirror for $5, bolts right in to the door hinge.
