CJ mirrors on a YJ...?

I'm wanting to put CJ mirrors on my YJ so I can see when I doors are off. How do I go about doing this? Can I just buy CJ window hinges and go from there or what? Thanks a bunch!

You can change to CJ hinges or drill and tap the YJ hinges.

Re: CJ mirrors on a YJ...?

I took the mirrors off my YJ doors and used rubber plugs to seal the holes and put windshield mounted mirrors on from Mopar, available thru Jeep dealers. They work very well, but the quality of the mirrors is crap (rust on the arms and cracks in the plastic within months, and they're expensive). Just something else to look into.

Re: CJ mirrors on a YJ...?

Kentrol makes CJ style mirrors with mounting brackets that mount to the YJ hinges. I bought mine from Leon Rosser's many months ago but haven't installed them yet. They look pretty good sitting in the box.

Did you replace your slave cyliner yet?

Re: CJ mirrors on a YJ...?

I want them to be black though. I don't really want chrome ones. I'm in the process of painting all my hinges black. About my slave cylinder, I did replace that last weekend. Thanks for asking. I forgot to post on it. It went perfect. I now have a jeep!!! YEAH!

Re: CJ mirrors on a YJ...?

well I have seen some new hinges that relocate the yj mirrors off their original location and youd be able to take off your doors and still be street legal.
