I picked this mirror up and have been running it for about 2 weeks now. I'm pretty happy with it. It's adjustable, stable and cost about $20. Plus I think it looks cool mounted on the roll bar. I'm sure it's been done before but I'v never seen it. Walmart.com: Stearns Black Multi-Mount Mirror: Hunting
I love it when people stop to... Think outside the Box!!
Did you check to see if any combination of the mounting holes of the mirror may have matched up with the factory bolt mounts on the side of the Wrangler windshield?
cool idea, me i just put some 10$ bike mirrors and jammed them into the door hinge with some wing nuts..
Can we see some pictures?
In the summer I remove the doors and have a mirror relocation bracket for the driver's side. I can't use the relocation bracket on the passenger side cause I'm running a snorkel. So these ideas are great!
I got lots of use out if this setup last summer. Now it's spring time and this mirror will be going back on the old girl. I might even paint the u-bolt this time around. One big thing to keep in mind is the mirror is mounted higher than factory, if you glance over and your eyes go to the fatory spot you wont see the guy coming up beside you.
I think you could get away with putting the top up if you got caught in a spring shower. But you wouldn't have the door surrounds to hook the top to. I wouldn't want to drive very fast/far with my top like that. Plus w/o any doors or windows what's the point.
You can always toss the surrounds and a socket in the back. If you have to put the top up it only takes a sec to get the mirror off and surrounds back on.
I just wrote up a whole post suggesting this idea and of course just before I posted it I found this thread! Has there been any development on this? It would be cool if there was a way to make these with a quick-release style of clip onto the roll bar
I did similar with a muffler clamp. I forgot what size it is but it is smaller than the above. I had to cut some of the part that slides on the U bolt and some of the padding. Anyway, mine is facing around 7 o'clock. The muffler clamp fits with the door surround on. All I need to do is remove is unscrew the mirror or twist it in to install the doors.
