Jeep Mirrors: Cheaper Than A Ticket



There are a lot of Jeep owners who don’t understand why their Wrangler even needs mirrors. Afterall the only thing they do is let you see what you have already crusher through when off-roading. The fact though is that mirrors are for when you are on the real road if you don’t have them you get a ticket and no one likes a ticket. Well maybe a ticket to the Jeep show.


The other issue with mirrors is that they often get in the way when out beating down the brush and hopping through puddle jumps. And of course they occasionally get damaged or even taken off completely. Thank goodness for HighRock 4X4 Replacement Mirrors in Black for 87-06 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited because they are affordable and fit a bunch of different Jeep models.

These mirrors fit on different types of doors like soft doors, full steel doors and element doors. They come in black to match the rest of the trim on most jeeps and are made of cast aluminum which helps keep the mirror weigh to a minimum. The cool part is that they are a lot less expensive than one would think replacement mirrors would cost. Xteremeterrian.com sell them for under eight-five bucks compared to other places that charge well over a hundred dollars.

HighRock 4X4 Replacement Mirrors in Black for 87-06 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited are also made so they are big enough that you can see the damage you’ve done to the off-road terrain you just plowed or see the other crazy Jeep runners trying to catch up to you. Or you can just look back and laugh at the jerk who got himself stuck in one of the those wimpy 4x4s made from another company other than Jeep.

Remember side mirror are the law in most states so even if you don’t use them whe you are out bopping around in the bush you have to put them on when you hit the pavement. Tickets are just a waste, the money you spend on them could be spent on your jeep instead.

  1. Here’s another thing. The police will not care that you just got that mirror knocked off before you hit the pavement again. At least the one that wrote my ticket didn’t much care. Beware, a missing mirror is an easy thing to spot.

  2. I think you’re talking about me here. I’ve lost track of the number of mirrors I’ve ripped off by getting into tight places. The guys are always ragging me about it. I’ve never had a speeding ticket, but I have had 3 for driving with no mirrors. You would think I’d get the hint, and I think I finally may have thanks to you.

  3. Since I don’t drive my Jeep on the roads and most of the trails I ride are located on my own property, I never bothered to replace the mirrors when they got jerked off or crushed. I got used to seeing them gone and never gave it a second thought when I took the Jeep into town for an appointment while I was having my truck serviced. Without the mirror I missed the fact that there was a vehicle close to me in the next lane. When I heard the horn as I passed over the line I saw the red lights about the same time. Can you spell t-i-c-k-e-t? I got a 10 minute lecture to accompany the ticket. The mirrors have both been replaced and I will consider it an expensive lesson learned!

  4. I’m usually pretty careful to steer clear of spaces that are tight enough to endanger my mirrors. I only have my Jeep so I need to keep it street legal while getting my kicks off road. I try to keep my tickets confined to parking tickets as moving violation tickets are pretty pricey and I’m stingy with my money.

  5. I get both sides of this issue. I’m the town sheriff and an avid off roader. I’m apt to cut you some slack if I see a missing or mangled mirror so long as I don’t see it more than once. It’s a pain, been there and done it myself. But, the law is the law and it’s as much about your safety as anything.
