Greets. I use to drive by Jeeps and say to my wife, "there goes my Jeep." It didn't matter what it looked like...I just always wanted one. I took my first drivers test in Harlan, Ky in a Wrangler that I had never been in before...thanks to my cousin for that.
I am now an empty nester and decided to purchase my dream vehicle. I couldn't be more pleased. Paid 18,700..how did I do?

Seems like you got the top of the line..depending on the year. Is your an 06? If so, go to Jeep.com and built your version.

What should I get to replace my mirrors when I take the doors off? I don't want to drill holes or make brackets. One would have thought they would have a place for them knowing folks will remove the doors.

There are plenty of brackets out there. Try Quadratec.com or 4wd.com. It isn't cheap, but they work well.
"One would have thought they would have a place for them knowing folks will remove the doors."
The idea is they don't want to encourage lawsuits. Remember that somebody will actually take the doors off and drive with no seatbelts. Then, when they fall out, they'll sue Chrysler. The doors are intended to be swapped (full for half, etc.) rather than left off. Personally, I like the top off and doors on on pavement.

So I attach the brackets to holes that are already there?

There is a lot of options out there. I reuse my stock mirrors on a bracket that I bought from Sun Performance products. www.sunperformance.com/
There is a good write up on it here (click).
I kindof redneck it, but I keep my drive side permanently mounted on the bracket. The passenger side mirror is not usable on the bracket when the doors are on, so I leave it mounted on the door. When I am doorless I only have a drive side mirror and review mirror.
I have heard buying some of the other mirrors to drop in the door hinge vibrate a lot.
For more information on other options and modifications you may want to post in the regular Jeep Wrangler forum. click here
Let me know if you have any other questions about the Sun Performance brackets.

Not a problem. I'll drop you an email once you make it public. I don't live there anymore, but I did live there for nearly 7 years.

#55 of 274 Purchasing a 2007 Wrangler this fall '06
Jul 07, 2006 (11:27 am)
Living in New York City
I've always loved Jeeps but they were not "practical"
for the family back in the day.Son is grown and is on his own.So....I'm hopefully going to purchase the newly redesigned Jeep Wrangler this coming fall.
I've owned a Bronco II when I was in the service in the late 80's.Did a lot off-roading with my fellow soldiers.
I currently own a 1990 Toyota Camry,but last winter the poor thing was having fits in the snow.So,this winter she will be kept in the garage and the Wrangler will take up those duties and whatever else I can think of.
