JKU doors off and need mirror help.

Just removed my doors for the 1st time and need recommendations on mirrors. What does everyone prefer? Thanks

I use the kind that slip into the upper door hinge, by Lange, I think. About $50.
You can also buy some for motorcycles (various shapes) and do the same, probably for less $$.

Don't buy the kind that relocate the OEM mirrors from the door to the A-Pillar. I've heard nothing but complaints about blind spots on those.

I bought the small 2 inch mirrors and put them on my air vents. They're the kind people stick onto normal mirrors to see blind spots.

A friend gave me a set of Langes that mount to the A post, I had to modify them a bit to get them to stay in place at hiway speeds but now they work great. I need these to see, not one of the guys that can go without knowing what's behind me.

Just by chance, I was in a Target store during the winter months and came across an old school Schwinn Bicycle mirror that was on clearance for $3.36. The threaded rod fit perfectly into the upper door hinge. I added a couple flat washers to keep the nuts from scuffing the paint on the hinges. The washers cost $.07 each. I have a total of $3.50 into this setup. Function wise it works pretty decent as it is adjustable and doesn't vibrate too bad at all. I wish it were just a touch bigger but I'm getting older and can't see as good as I used to.

Thanks guys for the responses. Looks like it might be some Harley mirrors. Too many ppl dislike the Lange ones.

I have the relocate to the a pillar and the drivers side is fine. My state only requires the drivers side. The passenger side is horrible to see even with the doors off. When I put the doors on they both suck. I wouldn't recommend these at all

Check out the Rampage mirrors..Qtech has them. I've got them and they are great, hardly any vibrations...only negative is a whistle at speed. Identical to the Rugged Ridge as far as I can tell and half the price ~$30 for the pair.
