I had the same problem, so I rigged up a solution with CJ mirrors and the upper door pins. I'll post some pics later. Basically take the mirror portion with just the shaft, take a bolt and use the door pin.

CJ mirrors the only way to go..... Permanent, Quick & Easy.
You can purchase a pair of new mirrors & brackets for around $50 and install them in about an hour with simple tools.
I removed my YJ mirrors from the doors and sold them on this forum. Nearly paid for the new set.

Just another Toy...
Every vehicle that is made or loaded so that the
driver’s view to the rear is blocked, must have at
least one outside mirror that shows the view of the
highway for at least 200 feet to the rear.
I took the oe mirror off it's original location on the upper door hinge and moved it to the lower half of the windshield hinge. Just lined the mirror up on the hinge, drilled 3 holes, tapped them and mounted the mirror on the hinge. It looks like it belongs there and best of all... it's free!
I ran around town (Cottonwood, AZ) with no windshield for 4 years before I finally got pulled over. Just got a warning and he never said a thing about the fact that I had zero mirrors. I had some safety glasses on and I think that helped with getting a warning. I still don't run side mirrors (with doors off) and I think it all depends on what cop you drive by. But as mentioned, I am pretty sure you need at least one side mirror and a windshield mirror.

NO, you have to have at least a mirror on the driver side, in every state.
Unfortunatly, this is not true. For example, NY, I only need the rear view mirror on the wind sheild.
