Bought schwinn bicycle mirrors from target for $7.99, took out the bolt in windshield by door, mounted there. mirror comes off with out removing the bolt, so I can take mirrors off but leave the piece screwed in without interfering with the doors.

This thread has some good stuff.
Never trust a happy man

I off road because I have a Jeep. I don't have a Jeep because I off road. Above all my Jeep is a convertible. That's where my love is for the brand ...convertible overkill

I see this is an old thread but I'll add my mod in anyway in hopes it helps someone Go to the link at the bottom of the page, click it to go to my site and watch the video. Just one note though. I really wasn't thinking about the pitch of the windshield when I welded the square tube to the tread plate. The factory YJ mirrors didn't have enough rearward tilt to make up for the pitch of the windshield. So, the mirror kinda looks at the ground a bit, I put spot mirrors on it to help fix my boo boo until I get around to making another set. If you space the top of the square tube out about 1/4" and leave the bottom of the tube contacting the plate it should be about right. Hope this sparks some ideas!
