What do you all suggest for mirrors when taking the doors off? I would like something tool-less if possible? The ones that bolt onto the door hinge I have a concern with the nut chipping the paint? I have seen the ones that mount on the front grab handles but those are extremely expensive. I have also read a lot about many of them shake. I havent had it long enough to be able to take the doors off yet but I am really excited to try it when spring gets here. I am putting them on a 21 JL 2 door

Carolina Metal Masters offering is the pick of the litter.. Pricey but when you say goodbye to your JL, someday, you will be able to sell the CMM mirrors, easily and recoop your $.

I love my ram balls and enduro bike mirrors. No whistling in the wind, not vibrations, and easy on and off. Also the whole set is under 40 bucks or so. There is a link somewhere around here to show you how to build a set. That guy had a great idea, because all the after market mirrors suck Or are stupidly pricey like the CMM stuff.

I run the same setup here. Inexpensive and works great either doorless or with soft doors. Here's the original post on these:

Another vote for Carolina metal masters. Just take the hit on price and you’ll be happy.

the only thing is they tell you to mount them to the top of the A pillar grab handle, but many, including myself, prefer them mounted to the bottom of the grab handle instead.

Absolutely love my Carolina Metal Masters mirrors. A bit pricey but hands down worth it. I installed mine on the bottom of the grab handles as well.

I too whole heartedly use and back CMM's mirrors. Extremely well engineered and made. You get what you pay for that's for sure.

CMM. Pricey but well worth it and then some. Zero shake. No risk of stripping or bending hinges or marring paint.

I use the Doubletake Mirror setup, which are the RAM ball and Enduro mirrors. Super easy install and there is no movement or vibrations from these. Plus they are so much cheaper than the Carolina Metal Masters. The CMM's are nice, but since I don't run doorless year-round, hard to justify that amount of money when I can buy a product just as good for a lower price.

Plus, since the Doubletake's mount outside on the cowl, you can leave them in place and put your door's back on if needed. From my understanding, the CMM's protrude out and would interfere with putting the door back on.

The CMM mirrors take 2 minites to install or remove. The mirror is attached to a bar with a threaded end that goes thru the bracket that stays on the Jeep mounted on the grab handle with a nut to tighten and hold it in place.

Lange Coyotes work well for me. No vibrating and reasonably priced.

I use the Lange Coyotes also. Very stable and I like the fact they use a convex lens.
