Hey guys, first post here so don't beat me up too badly...
I'm looking for a solution to my mirror problem. I'd like to take my doors off and stay street legal, and I've been looking at a bunch of mirror relocation kits but can't figure out what's best for me. The weather here is pretty inconsistent so I imagine I'd be removing the doors and putting them back on frequently.
Should I look to get a relocation kit (and if so, which one do you suggest) or should I look into getting temporary mirrors for the empty door hinge (and again, what kind would you suggest).
I went with a set of mirror relocation and Light brackets on a 2000 TJ. Also easy to install plus I got to buy additional lights (which were also pretty easy to install...as long as you don't mind them connected to your high beams).
Any mirror reloc racket will do for year found drivers side. Passenger side is useless w the door on, and greatly restricted w doors off. I bought rugged ridge quick release mirror for pass side. I run full hard doors in winter and full soft/ no doors the rest of the year. I've had the rr quick on for 1 week. Happy so far. The mirror is round, but has a long enough arm to be seen w any door or no door.
Peace. '09 2door soft top.

Just enough to get through most of the time,
get stuck sometimes, and still get home
i took a strip of aluminum approx 1in wide and 1/8" thick cut to length bent one end flat to bolt to the hinge, drilled it and then bent the strip outward to position the mirror further from the body of the jepp. I then took a emergency signal mirror that i had (had a hole in it) put rubber washers on both sides of the glass and bolted down. easy on and off and only $10 in parts
I also initially had a small mirror that was part of my dads tool hit. the mirror was on a pivot and attatched to a rod ( think dentist mirror) it fits in the hinge hole put would fall through to the base of the mirror so it would stay put. hardly constitutes a mirror but figured i could probably win over a cop with ingenuity if i had been stopped
