Am I the only person......

who can't see Sh$t out of the cj side mirrors? Is there some secret to them that nobody's told me yet? I use mine mostly for decoration, and sometimes banging into.

i have KC 69's on my mirror brackets, so I can't even see my right mirror unless I am using the light, and have to move my mirror down close to the door or take it off

funny I was just contemplating that last night on a speedo/gaugeless trip up to Walmart for carriage bolts, carb cleaner, and undercoat...

Even when I had it aligned correctly, they shake like all hell is breaking loose under the hood so all you can see a pile of headlight pudding behind you....

I don't have any side mirrors on it yet, but I can't see jack-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= out of the rearview mirror. I am one of those people who tend to look at their rearview A LOT while driving. I like to know whats going on around me at all times. But in the CJ, I just cant do it because the rearview shakes soooo bad.

Add a couple of those round stick-on bubble mirrors to a corner in each of your side mirrors. They're small, but they give you a much larger field of view, and the image in them doesn't bounce and shake like the flat mirrors do. I couldn't live without them. I've added them to my truck, too.



Not a good picture (I zoomed in on the only photo I had handy) but you get the idea.

I just go with the "if you can see their headlights, you probably won't hit them" philosophy. It's not like you got a big @$$ on the CJ anyhow, but if I ever find my philosophy fails me, I hope my new friends like black!
