Ok just cuz I looked up the vehicle code(equipment needed for operating on ny state roads) for new york state and all it said for mirrors was the driver side and the interior mirror nothing about no doors ot any thing about both sides I just asked to see if any one had ever had a problem in new york
If you want to go door less, Install a cage, Or buy a Wrangler or CJ
The door provide zero structural reinforcement. There's no need for a cage.
OP, you'll need whatever mirrors you'd normally have to have for an inspection. Here in VA you only have to have the rear view and drivers side.

As long as you've got a seatbelt on and mirrors it shouldn't be an issue. If you're close to PA however it is illegal to go doorless if they didn't come from the factory.
technically all doors (no matter what vehicle) are removable. wranglers are just most known/easier to remove
if you ever get a ticket and you wernt breaking any other laws, you CAN NOT get a ticket for being doorless. if you do.. fight it and tell the judge that
If they weren't meant to be removed from the factory (and you know what I mean) you absolutely can get ticketed in PA. The law specifically states so. The XJ doors have to be modified to be removed.
If the law specifically address driving around doorless and what does and doesn't count you're not going to win in court.
175.77 (f) (f) Doors. A vehicle specified under this subchapter shall be equipped with doors of a type used as original equipment. The doors shall open and close securely unless the vehicle has been manufactured or modified to the extent that there is no roof or side. Tailgates, except on vehicles where the tailgate gives access to the passenger compartment, may be replaced with wood planking, nets or other material that will prevent loss of load. Tailgates may be removed when optional equipment, for example a truck camper, is added.
