texas only requires one rear facing mirror so the rear view meets the safety requirements. i have those ones that mount to the relocation brackets on hte windshield also but i haven;t put them on since i meet hte dot safety requirements in my current configuration

I went the CJ mirror route and bought some originals on Fleabay. Only problem is I didn't get the angles right on the mounting brackets so I'm going to need to buy some tubing and bend up a new passenger side mirror arm.



This is what I did originally with a $12 O'reillys mirror and some spray-on bedliner.

I took a spare set of '94+ mirrors, swapped the mounting brackets left-to-right on the mirror heads, then attached them to my speaker grille using one of the factory bolt-holes and one new drilled hole on each side.

Looks factory (almost) too.

I will try to get pictures of it after work and post if I can.

My SD card reader in my computer died. I'll take a couple pics on my cell phone tomorrow and try posting it that way.

CJ style mirrors on mine too. If you mount them just right, the RT side can be pulled down and the windshield folded. (A massive plus for me as the windshield is folded all summer.)

I got these narrow head's from a mirror kit my dad bought for his Rubi and did not like them. They fit a spare set of stainless arms I picked up perfectly!


PS: Yes, she is a YJ. And a little CJ....and some TJ... I guess if you count the mirrors, and little Rubi too!
1991 frame and tub, CJ front clip, flares, and tail-gate (soon to be dash) and a 1998 TJ 4cy-FI & 5spd.

I did what jimmorgan82 did with his O'Rileys mirror. It only costs a few bucks and easy to put on/take off. I will say this; it's only useful to satisfy the law, it vibrates too much to really use.

These are what I made for mine. Also remember, I don't have any speakers behind those grilles... If you do and use them, just drill/tap the hole beneath the one that has the original screw in it and use those two holes instead.

I purchased a set of these. Simliar to CJ mirrors but, bolted directly into the windshield hinge holes. Took about 10 minutes to install. They are not the best but do get the job done.
