In the process of replacing the windsheild hinges. I would like some thoughts on what hinges to get, and what mirror setup to go with. I usually run full doors with the tiny useless little mirrors, so i lose the mirrors in the summer when the doors are off. I know there are various hinges that go with various mirror configurations so give me some ideas on what hinges to buy. Thanks.
P.S. Cut my old hinges off with cutting wheel. Worked great.

I got an $8 mirror from the local auto store, and attached it to a 6" or so 3/8"-16 bolt. The bolt slides through the door hinge perfectly, and keeps me legal when the doors are off. It only takes about 2 minutes to attach.
As far as mirrors go, I have TJ mirrors installed on my full doors. They are great mirrors, and I think you only have to drill one extra hole in the hinge, but I can't remember for sure.
I would have to agree... buy a good set of hinges (pre-drilled for the CJ mirrors) and buy a good set of CJ mirrors. Beware of the cheap ones, they are light weight and will make the mirrors shake like mad. Remember, you will adjust the passenger side mirror to view it through the windshield, not the door.
