I made some brackets to hold some motorcycle mirrors when I have the doors off.
I have had them on for a day & think I need to use a different mirror that has a
wider field of view.Give me your thoughts?

Looks great. Different for sure. are they stable, as in, no vibrations when you are driving?

Thats a good idea. Having them in tight like that will keep them from getting ripped of when off road.

I have the quick mirrors and they vibrate quite a bit when idling. Stick out farther too but work with hard and soft doors and no doors.

A bigger mirror will give you quite a blind spot in the front corner. Thats the problem with mine.

Hard to see people/trees etc when turning. You have to adjust your driving to the mirrors and make sure there isn't anything hiding behind them.

The vibration is not a problem at idle, but it is little blurry at highway speeds. The field of view is limited but it's butter than nothing. I've been driving without doors for
several weeks & didn't like not having mirrors. I had the motorcycle mirrors so that is why I used them. I have not found anything I like better yet, I don't want anything
to big, I think it would just get in the way. You can reverse the mirrors to get a better view up & down for off road but limits side to side view.

I use the famous N2ROCK mirror mod.

Quick, cheap and works pretty good.

Cant find a picture of the things, but its the little round sticky mirrors that stick on the AC nozzles/covers.
