    I've got an '09 JK and the windshield rear view mirror is bubbled around the edges from exposure to the elements.

    Looking for recommendations on replacement brands or specific mirrors.

    Thanks!

    On my Tundra PU I was able to mount a Nissan auto-dimming mirror+compass with minor wiring needed to power the unit. Depending upon what mounting tab is on the windshield your options could be more than just a plain mirror....perhaps something fancier from a Grand Cherokee or Cherokee.

    Yeah. Its just a plain Jane. I don't mind a manual dim with no extras. Cheaper to replace if it reacts to the elements again. Quadratec has a $25 plain mirror. Great simple option for me.

    Thank you tho! Great info!

    Oh no.....stay out of Quadratecs Web site. They are a drug for Jeeps. Be prepared to reach deep and often into your pockets. :goingcrazy:

    Kidding of coarse. I've been buying from them for about 15 years now. They have the largest inventory, the best customer service around, and their shipping is fantastic. No.....i dont work for them. Lol. Just a huge fan of theirs. Have fun building your new rig.

    Hehe. Yeah. I was looking around. Fun stuff. I think upgrading lights to fun LEDs are what I'd want to do first. Already bought a mirror and hitch from them. Lol

    Glad to hear another happy customer for them. I'll definitely look to them among the first sources for my jeep needs. Fingers crossed its just fun upgrades and not repairs. Haha.

    Their LED headlights are a good upgrade from the OEM lights. Easy install, and about the best price around.

    Ok....first of all. We don't make repairs to our Jeeps. We make "-upgrades". Even if it is a repair. Shh. Did I just say that. Lol.
    Totally agree.
