Alright. I had removed my doors quite a few months ago and hadn't found any standard mirrors that worked well with no doors. My zuk had the large elephant mirrors on the door so these wouldn't work well for me. I also prefer not to drill holes into the body panels to mount mirrors I didn't like.

Anyways, I found some mirrors that work quite well on the zuk. These are mirrors which are designed for the 1976 to 1995 Jeep CJ and Jeep Wrangler. The cost is about $40 for a pair plus shipping. www.4wd.com didn't have them in stock so I had to go through www.jcwhitney.com .

The mirrors fit quite well just by flipping one of the brackets to get a better alignment with the bolts for the door hinge. The passenger mirror needs a slight adjustment to allow the angle to be set where you can see out of it. They had slight vibration which I will be adjusting for (it's kind of hard to do that now with only a front driveshaft which vibrates above 30mph).

Here's some <A HREF="http://members.home.net/rokzuki/mirrors.htm">pics</A>.

Looks good, I haven't seen that one before. I don't want to see what is behind me that badly though. Heck, I just wait a few seconds and look at them as they fly past me (lol) <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

The main reason that I put them on there is to help keep from getting pulled over. Since I went spring over I have been getting a lot of looks. There aren't too many zuks around here and a 6+ foot tall yellow one stands out.

I don't think I had seen that article before. Those are basically the same exact mirrors that I got. I have the windshield fold-down kit so I couldn't mount them like that.

I really liked the fact that I was able to mount them without having to drill any holes though.

just afew quick questions-
how hard is it to fold them back for tight squeezes,and if they aren't too difficult to fold back,what keeps them from doing so when you DON'T want them to?

i relocated my stock mirrors slightly above and forward of the top door hinges (ya i thought for awhile before drilling through my body but oh well...)

I haven't tried folding them in yet, but the way the brackets are it should not be a problem. They will stick out as far as the L-shaped mounting brackets which actually bolt to the hinge. When you tighten down the bolts they hold pretty well without moving. I think I just need to tighten down the bolts holding the mirror itself to the arm more.
