I want to do this when ever I buy factory half doors. I may try to make something instead.

those i like. Some of these others, not so much. still stuck with swapping out from doors to these. but if always doorless then i can see these as a big benefit.

I bought the Lange type 1 mirror and hate it. It doesn't stay steady and whistled really bad.

Is it the mirror that moves, or the arm that attaches to the windshield?

Mine don’t move. They stay exactly where I put them, other than the occasional tree. I don’t find they vibrate much but they are noisy. I live topless so their wind noise is the least of my whistles and whurrs. My JK ones are a 13 months old my TJ ones I ran for 6 years, with a paint touch up a few years back.

Why do you need mirrors? 90% of all drivers never use em anyway....

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...

For the police. It's law here in MA anyway. Two mirrors or a ticket.

Good for you. I have to keep my two side mirrors healthy because when I put the windsheild down I lose that mirror and my local LEOs wanna see the two mirrors,

I know I was kidding - but in Texas only one is required - and the windshield mount satisfies that.
