Rearview Mirror- Windshield

Hello all...
I have found this site very helpful thus far. My next question is reviews on rear view windshield mirrors. I have side mirrors- but want the windshield one as well....

Can I see what you have?
What brand do people have and do they like them?

Thanks in advance!

8 inch is stock and fits between the visors best.
9 will fit but it's a tight fit.
You want the mounting base socket to be close to 90degrees, not the 45 degrees as most car types are.
A few drops of oil on the back of the glass will help prevent the mirror corrosion that is common with these.

Jeep used a Ford model rear view mirror during the 80's. I broke mine once in the late 80's and got another one out of the junkyard from a Ford Escort that was an exact match. Day/Night feature only the Renegades and Laredo's had. All others were standard day only. Found another one a couple of years ago at the junkyard and have it installed since the old one started to cloud over.

My spare tire is too big to have a rearview mirror.

I never thought about that per say- My corbeau seats are a bit higher, but my 35" BF Mud might be in the way. Guess I should check that out after the seats are installed.
