27 freaking days later, they've arrived. It's definitely a kid selling these things. He only realized I'd ordered them after ebay opened a dispute with him.

Took my doors off for the first time..at least while riding as I just purchased the some light switch clips. Looks great but I'm not sure that I read the mirror laws in Ga correctly and I parked next to cop today. Law says I must have a mirror that allows me to see the rear and street at least 200ft, I have rear view mirror but no side mirrors so I guess we will see. I googled it and most say you need at least two mirrors so I dunno.

I think you're gonna be fine. I drove around Ga for like 3 weeks without a tag once. I just couldn't seem to make it up to woodbine to get it

Here in Fl, they could really give a sh*t. But I still sprung for some Rugged Ridge mirror movers. I like them, very factory look. There's some other routes you could take as well. There's the motorcycle mirror in the door hinge trick, and I've also seen people stick those convex spot mirrors to the inside of their windshields.

Here's mine




Oh, and that's a VERY good looking Jeep you've got there. Love that color, especially with the beefy black fenders. Tube theme is cool too. However my friend, zombies aren't real

If you've been deep in the water have you extended the t-case and trans breather hoses? Most stock Jeeps have at least one of them tied to the top of the trans.

Yet...they aren't real yet! Haha just kidding, I just got them as a running joke with my family and friends. I use the zombie apocalypse to buy new guns, you can never be too safe.

OT: I plan on buying those exact rugged ridge mirror relocation brackets today if the local supplier has them. If not I may put doors back on for a few days while I order them

Acuater pin went, left me stranded in the rain mad at my jeep for the moment and waiting for auto zone to call me to come pick my part up. Love starting my jeep with a screwdriver.

Good plan. I put mine on, and they stay on. When I put my doors back on(rarely), I just swap the mirrors back to the doors. The brackets are far enough outta the way that nothing will touch them.

However, BE VERY CAREFUL REMOVING THE TORX SCREWS. They are painted in there, along with Loc-Tite. I got 3 out successfully only by hanging my 165lb @ss down on the ratchet. The 4th one stripped. So, I would stick a center punch in the head and give it a whack or two. See my antics here:

So I'm guessing you cannot see the mirrors from the new brackets with the doors on?

Correct. I was hopeful that I'd be able to, and just delete the mirror brackets on the doors. But with the mirrors moved forward onto the windshield, the doors hit them. If you tilt them out of the way of the door swing, you can't see a thing out of them. So I'm forced to do the mirror swap dance every time I put on or take off my doors.
