The hard door side view mirrors are easy to remove. At the base of the mirror is a plastic cover with some hidden tabs. You just need to pop it off and remove two phillips head screws. Given how old the plastic is, the tabs might break. My mirrors are long gone.

Ive actually had harness's in my daily before and yes your right on loooooong trips to ne they get old, defiantly getting the shoulder pads. Ive also thought about the full bolt on sports cage from RockHard4x4 its like 650$ Has everything but a Xbrace from the cage to the floor.

Bolt in cages aren't recommended around here. I, however have no opinion on them. If you feel safe I suppose that's all that matters.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

ok on my list for upgrades is to get new Guages from AutoMeter.......all of them, the Speedo, Tach, Volt, Oil Psi, Temp, i was thinking they could be just a drop in until i took the dash apart and saw that its all 1 piece, i was thinking it was all mechanical guages...which is what i wanna run since there so simple and im use to running them. but if theres just "plug n play" guages thats good looking as well im up for suggestions. I know a couple of the existing guages does not work...

Smittybilt SRC Classic Front Bumper - With D-Rings & D-Ring Mounts for 170$ ( pic 1)

Rugged Ridge Tubular Front Bumper with Hoop Front Black 220$
i like the smitty, but seems almost too simple, like a car wreck would still wipe it out ,then again the Rugged would prob rip off the first time i pull against it (also the one i want had a winch mount)
