Well if this is something people are just building it would be a good project to start with on my welder

yea, it would, just a piece of 1.5 id tubing cut in half, a big ass u bolt, and a piece of strap welded across for the mirrior to bolt to, a welder and a 4 in grinder should be about all you need for tools...........i says go for it, and post a write up about it

I think if it were me I'd want to drill and tap the roll cage for a bolt to bolt it down (rather than a hose clamp) because I'd need to be able to attach and remove it easily, as it would be impossible to use with the doors on, it seems like.

With the hose clamps you can just loosen them and slide them down or up and still be able to put the doors on

the hose clamps would let it spin, and swivel around the roll cage if you hit a tree or something, if it was bolted on it would probably just snap off

if i was building it for real i would want to use these http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/OD-Tube-Clamp_p_1474.html

but it would be mucho dinero

Na I aint going to solid mount these for 2 reason.
1. if I need to put the windows on my jeep for some reason I want to be able to spin or quickly take them off so they dont interfer.
2. If I do hit a tree, rock, ect with one they will just break the hose clamp and maybe bend a little instead of folding over or breaking completly off

How about going to a spring shop and getting (leaf spring) U-bolts made to the proper dimensions*. They can use whatever diameter rod you want and even bend them in a rectangle or a circle. Only buying 2 would be cheap.


Stainless muffler clamps could fasten them to the cage. Not as trick as what you found George, but it would be cheaper. Just an idea...

It looks like there may be some worthwhile options here, too:

http://www.joesracing.com/scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=458

I'm specifically interested in the brackets, as I already have 6" round convex mirrors. I'm thinking they could be clamped to the A-B spreader and hang down at a shallow angle to give decent mirror coverage without sticking out too far, both for trail riding and highway cruising.

Either that or a pair of these (got $$$$?) to keep it tucked in tight.

ill be looking into some kinda mirror like that.. on the passenger side of my project after i build a cage.. its funny this post hit right as i was thinkin that.. instead of a saddle plate i would probably take them U-bolts and thread the nuts on. then bend em at a 90, then weld the nut on the cage .. so u can push the mirror out and pull it in..
just set it where the nut gets tight where u like the mirror...
