In my racecar I use a wide convex mirror, I think they work better. Seamless from side to side and take up less space in your windshield.

I can't image it being that great in a street car.

i have run them before in cars, and adjusted perfectly they are awesome, but i had a hard time using the one style mount I would have liked to use which is a lot like the stock mirror arm, but they wouldnt stick no matter what I tried. They are also very cheap so If you really wanted to try one out id say get it, just not sure how easy it will be in the jeep to mount. On my other cars I ended up pulling out the stock sun visors and used the holes from those to mount the mirror since the visors wouldnt be able to be used where the mirror was mounted. Also the mirror does block a decent amount of sun.

Great info. I heard a lot of stories about that windshield mount actually shattering the windshield. I'd like mount it to where the sun visors bolt in just didn't know if it was a good fit
