several people use the little convex towing mirrors that you can at any autoparts store. stick them to airvents on passenger and drivers side. when the doors are off usually your not using the AC anyway. i use them in the winter with the heater on when i have the doors off sometimes though haha

I bought the Mopar mirror off a guy on this site and works great. I don't think it's available anymore... but you might find a used one.

I picked up a set of universal sport mirrors from autozone. Don't really have a good pic of them but if you click on the link in my sig you can see the passenger side and where I mounted it using the upper bolts on the windshield brackets.

I used one of the Eurosport mirrors from Autozone. didn't really worry about the passenger side, since I can see quite well by turning my head.

Here's a pic of the mirror on the driver's side.

I use a Mopar (Rugged Ridge) relocation bracket on the drivers side and no mirror at all on the passenger side. I leave the passenger side mirror on the door.

+1 on the Ditech brackets. I've had them since they first came out and they work great. Prior to that I did the crappy Autozone Euro-Sport mirror thing from the other site. It worked, but not well. I had to take it off when I got to the trails because it would stick out too far and didn't have the range of motion to just bend it out of the way. With the Ditech, I just leave the mirrors on and fold them in when needed. They fold inside the rock rails so I don't worry about it.

It takes 2 seconds to move the mirrors over so I just use the one set. Plus, its easier to store the doors without the mirrors anyway.

I used to use the Rugged Ridge brackets until I got half doors. The passenger mirror was worse than useless with the half door canvas in the way. I switched back to the stock brackets and just go mirrorless. I'm pretty sure in FL we're only required to have one rear facing mirror attached.

The Rugged Ridge ones are pretty nice. They don't stick out any farther than the OE brackets and if you lose the bolts you can replace them with hardware store bolts. I think new they are $50 and you can find em used fairly easily.
