Doors off mirrors?

What are some good ones? Both in price and looks?

I use motorcycle ones that bolt into the door pin holes. They actually stay steady enough to use on the freeway and you can easily fold them in for trails. I think they were about ten dollars each. Any shop that has dirtbikes should have them or be able to get some.

Superior axles doesn't honor their warranty. Don't buy from them.

I've got the mirror movers. They're not bad for $40 or so, and you keep your stock mirrors. Downside is that you can't move the doors all the way forward, 90 degrees at best. Also, you can't see out of the pass side when you put the doors back on. So you would have to swap them back and forth...

I've got the Sun performance relocation brackets.

works for me. Can't see out the passenger side mirror with the soft uppers on, but it's not that big a deal.

I like the new position of the drivers side mirror much more, however.

I went to the local auto parts store and bought the chepest mirror they had. It had a bolt in the back of it so I got a piece of L shaped steal, and drilled 2 holes in it. one on each surface One hole is for the back of the mirror and I run a long bolt through the other one. That bolt goes into the door hinge with a nut on the bottom. It looks ugly and shakes at speeds over about 50 but it only cost about 10 bucks all together. Plus its one of a kind.
PS. I only made one for the driver side.

I couldn't find one that I liked so I wound up making my own. Here's what I did:

I bought a universal truck mirror at a local auto parts store for $15. It looks like the ones found on older trucks like Broncos that bolt right to the door:


Then I bent, cut, grinded, filed, and drilled it until it looked like this:


I made it so that I have to spread the bracket open to fit it over the top and bottom of the hinge, which helps keep it from moving in the wind. I never tighten down the nut very much and the mirror has never moved, even at freeway speed. This is the only pic I could find of the mirror mounted on my Jeep:


Hope you or others find this useful as another affordable option

I got these as a gift a few years ago - I keep the passanger side mirror on the door, if I know I'm going to take the door off for awhile then I just put the mirror on the bracket it's easy to swap, or go without it - only need driver mirror and rear view to be legal in CA (or 2 side mirrors with no rear view)

anyone know how legit it is to cruise without the mirrors in NJ? I haven't gotten around to going out and buying new mirrors yet and i was wondering if I'd be in trouble if I get caught out there

I just ordered a pair of these http://www.quadratec.com/products/33011_02.htm my son has one for his Jeep that we found uptown at a sidewalk sale for a hardware store. We had to paint that one black.

These should be ready to go, the mount that comes with them won't be used. I'll pick up a bolt, nut and a couple of nylon washers and be in business. I like these better than mirror movers. They aren't to hard to take off when it's time to put the doors back on.
